For the third NSS Labs Group Test in a row, Forcepoint NGFW has received the highest score in security efficacy. This year’s test was significantly more difficult with 39% more evasion tests, but Forcepoint NGFW still stopped 99.7% of all attacks and blocked 100% of evasions.

“The Forcepoint 2105 had the highest security effectiveness in the NSS Labs 2018 NGFW Group Test and its throughput was rated even higher than Forcepoint’s claimed performance.”
