Why don’t traditional defenses stop advanced attacks and data theft? Simply put, they are no match for dynamic downloads, payloads, exploit kits and callbacks utilized by cybercrime. Now, Forcepoint changes the game with real-time, data-aware Web and/or email defenses that scale for enterprise deployments on the Forcepoint X-Series appliance.

Why are X-Series Appliances Revolutionary?

Traditional enterprise security performance comes with a hidden cost — lack of real-time in-line defenses, which are required to effectively analyze today’s social networking sites and increasing amount of SSL traffic. To achieve fast performance in high traffic environments, traditional defenses have to rely on selective analysis, cloud-assist ratings blind to SSL traffic and a multitude of appliances. The Forcepoint X-Series appliance utilizes the proprietary ACE technology that enables real-time composite defense assessments of inbound and outbound traffic in high traffic environments.

Unmatched Enterprise Performance and Extensibility

  • Forcepoint X10G blade server/chassis architecture reduces rack space (10U) and increases performance to multi-GB throughput.
  • Scalable to 16 blades, each with 12 processing cores, 32G RAM and 1.2TB HDD space.
  • 10G network interfaces, four power supplies, chassis management controller, and dual internal switches.
  • Base configuration starts with two blades and scales from 10,000 to 100,000 users depending on load factors.

Real-Time Data-Aware Contextual Defenses

  • Real-time Web and/or email security, data, and content classifiers with ACE composite defense assessments, leveraging over 10,000 analytics updated in real time.
  • Data-aware contextual security against data theft and loss, leveraging an integrated enterprise DLP engine.
  • Threat intelligence from the Forcepoint ThreatSeeker Intelligence, monitoring for malicious web and email activity in more than 155 countries, delivering real-time threat intelligence to customers at an average rate of 3.2 per second.
  • Unified Forcepoint TRITON architecture, including threat intelligence, a unified console and unified policies and reporting, for lower TCO.

The Forcepoint difference: ACE (Advanced Classification Engine)

Forcepoint ACE provides real-time, inline contextual defenses for Web, Email, Data and Mobile security by using composite risk scoring and predictive analytics to deliver the most effective security available. It also provides containment by analyzing inbound and outbound traffic with data-aware defenses for industry-leading data theft protection. Classifiers for real-time security, data and content analysis — the result of years of research and development — enable ACE to detect more threats than traditional anti-virus engines every day (the proof is updated daily at ACE is the primary defense behind all Forcepoint TRITON solutions and is supported by the Forcepoint ThreatSeeker Intelligence Cloud.
