Yes I have over 100+ office and field techs with laptops and desktops.
I know software firewall is no good. This is a hardware firewall that comes with the program call the SMC or IDK what it's called now.
So this is how it went down. I joined my last company in 2015. When I got there they were using McAfee Next Generation Firewall hardware know Stonesoft (Pic of hardware attached). Then only after a few months of being there McAfee sold it to Intel. Intel did nothing nothing much with it or did very little. Then as I left the company I heard it was going to Forcepoint powered by Raytheon.
So has anyone use this new Firewall Hardware by Forcepoint? If so did you come from using the McAfee to Forcepoint and is there a big difference.
