Check Point NGFW Review

Descriptive logging, good dynamic port features, and the technical support is helpful

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this product for cloud computing security. It is an integration platform for IPS and I also use it for performance monitoring.

I also coach classes on the use of this firewall, which is installed on my personal laptop.

What is most valuable?

This product is more secure than other firewalls, such as FortiGate.

The information stored in the logs is very descriptive and includes a lot of details.

The dynamic port features are better when compared to other firewalls.

What needs improvement?

This firewall is difficult to manage and use when you first begin using it. However, once you are used to it, the interface is comfortable and easy to use.

The Smart Control feature is hard to install.

In the future, I would like to see more features in the unified security management platform.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

This is a reliable firewall.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Scalability is not an issue with Check Point.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support from Check Point is good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I have experience with other firewalls including FortiGate. Check Point is more secure, although it is more difficult to deploy and configure.

How was the initial setup?

Until you have some experience, the installation and configuration are difficult.

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

The licensing fees are paid on a monthly basis and I am happy with the pricing.

What other advice do I have?

Check Point is responsible for inventing several firewall security features.

In summary, this is a good product and I recommend it because it the most secure firewall on the market.

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
