Forcepoint Security System Check

The v8.5.x Forcepoint Security upgrade software ensures that your system has sufficient capacity and a compatible operating system.
 

Upgrading to v8.5

Always use the product upgrade guide to ensure that all steps of the upgrade procedure are completed.

Always begin by backing up your system. Then locate the server that runs Policy Broker and Policy Database and upgrade that server (or appliance) first. The Setup program detects older components installed on the current machine and updates them.

Software: On the Downloads page, download the Forcepoint Setup program to perform software upgrades.

Older Versions

Upgrade overview: Versions prior to v7.x

An upgrade from an older product version typically requires two or three steps (after you backup your files): (1) move to an interim version so that you can get your system to v7.7 or later, and (2) then move to the latest 8.x version. In this case, you may need an installer for an older version to accomplish the interim upgrade. Backups at each step are essential.
