Forcepoint Releases Forcepoint Advantage to Modernize Cybersecurity Industry Pricing; Matthew Moynahan, Doug Cahill Quoted

Forcepoint has launched the Forcepoint Advantage enterprise licensing program to provide cost-effective, flexible and all-inclusive security subscription services for enterprises, enabling dynamic growth and funding digital transformations, the company announced on Monday

"For too many years our industry has favored increasingly fragmented point-product markets that result in organizations paying too much for often redundant security capabilities and still not adequately addressing their business needs," said Matthew Moynahan, CEO of Forcepoint. "Forcepoint recognizes that solving today's most pressing security problems requires tight integration of capabilities that cross traditional point product boundaries."

Forcepoint Advantage will modernize the cybersecurity industry's approach to pricing with a single per-user subscription program across the endpoint, network, cloud and entity behavior analytics. The new subscription model will remove the need to license and manage separate point products, including firewalls, web gateways, CASB and DLP. 

The subscription will also offer unlimited access to Forcepoint's integrated portfolio of user, data and edge protection solutions for a more than 30 percent reduction in total cost of ownership. Subscribers will receive immediate access to new features such as cloud capabilities. Organizations will be able to enact Forcepoint’s deployment model to determine user growth, business expansion, mergers and acquisitions.

"Behavior-based cybersecurity is tailor-made for the era of mobility and cloud because it enables enterprises to detect and respond faster..in simplifying enterprise licensing packages and cybersecurity consumption models, enterprises are empowered to continue moving at the speed of digital transformation with an optimized security program," said Doug Cahill, Group Director and Senior Cybersecurity Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group.
