Check Point UTM-1 [EOL] Review

Mobile access is valuable to us, but the GUI needs to be worked on.

Room for Improvement

The entire GUI, look and feel of the application.

Previous Solutions

We used Checkpoint 1075 UTM1. We switched as we needed a bigger box that can handle more traffic without slowing down browsing speed.

Initial Setup

The setup was done by their support reps here in Nigeria. It was straightforward, you just have to Install it and then configure your rules.

Implementation Team

We used a vendor who I would rate 6/10.

Other Solutions Considered

We also looked at Cyberoam, Cisco ASA and Fortinet.

Other Advice

Get a sound Check Point specialist to implement it , do a proper handover, and training for the product.
