Check Point SandBlast Review

Offers the most secure and surefire way to tackle ransomware

What is our primary use case?

My primary use of this solution is to supplement my existing antivirus and enable/enhance my anti-ransomware capabilities.

What is most valuable?

Its ability to rollback anti-ransomware once an attack has started is the most valuable feature. 

What needs improvement?

It needs to include built-in deployment. This will make the job easier rather than having to go and dig up an Active Directory deployment along with policy objects.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

It's very stable. It is a production-grade solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

It scales well. However, it lacks deployment functionality because other vendors, like Symantec and McAfee, are building that into their tools. 

How are customer service and technical support?

On a scale from one to ten, I would rate their technical support as a nine. 

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

We previously used Symantec Endpoint. Our reason for switching is because Check Point offers the most secure and surefire way to tackle ransomware.

I was part of the decision-making process.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was not straightforward. There is content available on the Check Point support site (on the Internet). This enabled us to deploy it out successfully.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it internally. 

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not consider any other vendors during the evaluation process.

What other advice do I have?

Don't think about getting the product. Just do it.

I would rate it a ten out of ten. No other product on the market is able to rollback a ransomware attack once it has started.

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