Check Point Endpoint Security Review

Prevents malware from entering via the internet or USB drives


What is our primary use case?

We are an international systems integrator company for Check Point Endpoint Security software solutions.

How has it helped my organization?

It's easy to deploy Check Point. If you try to download files or if you try to access any website, Endpoint will secure the activity. The malware will not be permitted to enter from the internet or USB drives. 

What is most valuable?

The SandBlast agent is the most valuable feature for Check Point Endpoint Security. We've found that the Check Point SandBlast agent is mature.

What needs improvement?

The remote deployment with Check Point Endpoint Security requires improvement. We have to depend on some of their deployment tools. 

I would like a dependable system endpoint protection management tool or remote deployment tool. The deployment on the remote client needs some type of tool to implement it.

For how long have I used the solution?

One to three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of Check Point Endpoint Security is quite good. One single install is enough. You can forget about it. Then it just takes care of scanning and updates. 

The beauty of Check Point Endpoint Security is the forensics. The forensics are very complicated too and it is easy to understand if some malware has entered into your PC. 

With Check Point forensics, they provide a pictorial diagram in the materials when malware is downloaded, when it is activated, when it is trying to contend with it, and when it is quarantined. 

Across the entire Check Point Endpoint Security software package, the network reports are really good.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

For maintenance, one or two employees is more than enough. We have about 30 users total in our company.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support from Check Point is really awesome. They initiate a call once they find a result. From the charts, alerts, and reports, you can reach out to support. 

If you share your phone number, they will call. Check Point provides us with really great support. Unless the issue is resolved, they will not disconnect the phone.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We also used Symantec and some of their anti-malware products. Once we tested Check Point, we realized that it's a lot better. 

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup of Check Point Endpoint Security was very easy. What we found was that they redesigned the entire UI, now called Infinity. Infinity is the new platform they evolved.

The Infinity platform gives us good results and is easy to manage. The entire process is straightforward. The deployment did not take much time, maybe close to three hours.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

With Check Point Endpoint Security, you can go with the Suite license or you can go with the individual Blade license. I recommend the Full Suite license.  

Check Point Endpoint Security is not 100% compatible with Kaspersky and Symantec products. You can go only with Endpoint, i.e. you cannot mix with a competitor's solution.

It could be a good solution because they have multiple ways to handle the licensing model. If someone requires an encryption license, it is extra and not included in the base license. If you have any intellectual property, then the financial investment will be worth it. 

If you compare Check Point Endpoint Security to Kaspersky, Kaspersky has two types of suites. One is the Select plan and one is the Advanced plan. If you go with their Advanced plan, then that will collect all of the web confidence reports, many of which vary. 

Check Point Endpoint Security is easier for the administrator compared to Kaspersky, in terms of alerts and reporting. The admin receives regular reports and each report says how many total Windows versions are there, how many Office instances there are, etc.

Each product will have a unique set of advantages and different backgrounds, but when it comes to security, we are happy to go with Check Point Endpoint Security.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Kaspersky. 

What other advice do I have?

The anti-malware we found very good on Check Point Endpoint Security. Mainly we observe the overall deployment and then maintenance is easy. It is only one click and you can deploy everything.

Whoever wants their data secure, and they want to have peace of mind, make sure to go with the anti-malware capabilities on the SandBlast Agent. 

We consider Check Point Endpoint Security to be one of the best systems for SAP. 

The zero-day anti-exploit solutions should be there with Check Point Endpoint Security. Because of the budget, people keep the software, but my advice is that it is also a must-have software. You should have SandBlast Agent along with the anti-malware capabilities installed. 

I would rate it a ten out of ten. 

Disclosure: My company has a business relationship with this vendor other than being a customer: Reseller.
