About Neo for Forcepoint Cloud Security Gateway

Neo offers the functionality of the classic Forcepoint F1E agents (Proxy Connect Endpoint and Direct Connect Endpoint) in one package starting in Neo 21.03 (Windows 10) and Neo 21.06 (macOS Big Sur 11). Neo can intelligently switch between the proxy connect and direct modes depending on network conditions and performance.

The classic Proxy Connect Endpoint and Direct Connect Endpoint agents provide security and monitoring of web activities, but you can install only one of the agents on a single endpoint. With Neo, you have both proxy connect and direct connect modes installed and available on the endpoint.
