Forcepoint has introduced new human-centric security capabilities delivered through cloud, network and risk-adaptive security solutions that empower enterprises and government agencies to accelerate their digital transformation and lower risk. According to the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report 2017, 81% of data breaches were caused by the hijacking of user credentials by hackers to gain access to internal systems and data. The traditional approach of blocking threats that legacy vendors continue to offer is insufficient to fight the battle. Forcepoint is transforming cybersecurity through a new approach that emphasizes understanding human behavior and user interaction with critical data over networks of different trust levels to combat the use of compromised credentials.
Today Forcepoint is fortifying its Human Point System of integrated capabilities with more precise data control and visibility into user identity, activity and intent across cloud deployments, applications and complex distributed networks to help organizations effectively secure users and IP in a digital world they don’t fully control.
“The dramatic changes in enterprise IT and critical infrastructure over the last five years necessitate a different approach to cybersecurity, because focusing solely on threats is a no-win scenario,” said Heath Thompson, senior vice president and general manager of Commercial Security at Forcepoint. “We believe companies must shift their focus to understanding behavior, and dynamically adapting to risk in real-time. We call this risk-adaptive protection. With risk-adaptive protection, policies can be continuously and uniquely applied to the individual, not just broad groups of users within the organization thereby lowering risk while still enabling people to get their jobs done.”
Forcepoint’s Human Point System brings together best-in-class capabilities including Data Loss Prevention (DLP), User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB), Web/Email Security and Network Security that can stand alone or integrate within an existing environment. Enterprise and government organizations can now deploy DLP and UEBA together in a risk-adaptive protection solution that understands the context and intent of user behavior and dynamically applies enforcement policies to activity representing the highest risk.
