Data center Performance
Forcepoint will reroute your traffic through data centers or “Points of Presence” (PoPs). Rerouting leads to performance and reliability issues, as data center outages are extremely common and entirely unpredictable.
dope.swg does not rely on data center stopovers! This allows us to work consistently in every country and network without worry for data center outages ever again.
By default, Forcepoint is limited to HTTP/1.1 for a majority of their traffic. This downgrade causes slower loading speeds (see here).
With dope.swg and local SSL inspection, HTTP/2 is supported on day one and your connection is never degraded down to HTTP/1.1. It’s so smooth, you won’t even notice we’re running in the background.
There are major privacy holes with Forcepoint. SSL inspection occurs off-device in data centers and PoPs and leave your decrypted data vulnerable to threat actors.
dope.swg will never do SSL inspection outside of your device’s safe zone. Decryption happens locally, so the only data in the cloud are processed transaction records sent to the region of your choice.
