Forcepoint does not support running Forcepoint Endpoint security products concurrently with third-party security products.
Unexpected behaviors are possible when a Forcepoint Endpoint security product (such as Forcepoint DLP Endpoint, Forcepoint Web Security Endpoint, or Endpoint Context Agent) and a third-party security product (that interacts similarly with the operating system and users) are installed on the same machine.
For example, if a Forcepoint Endpoint agent and a third-party security product use the same operating system function to access, encrypt, and decrypt files, a conflict may arise. Due to these conflicts, Forcepoint Support may be limited in their ability to assist.
Third-party security products should not be installed alongside similar Forcepoint Endpoint products. These deployments are not supported by Forcepoint. If third-party endpoint security products are already installed alongside similar Forcepoint Endpoint products, be sure to fully remove the third-party security products to resolve any conflicts.
Antivirus software is generally compatible with Forcepoint Endpoints.
