Check Point UTM-1 [EOL] Review

It's not cheap when compared to other solutions, but it has some valuable features, such as SSL VPN, and IPS.

Valuable Features

  • Threat prevention
  • IPS
  • Application Control and URL filtering
  • Mobile Access
  • Anti Spam
  • Mail

Improvements to My Organization

IPS prevents many unwanted, malicious objects from our web sites. It provides high level security for our network, and by using AppWiki, thousands of application can be controlled over the network. Also, the anti-spam engine provides effective solutions for spam mails.

Room for Improvement

The physical memory is insufficient for installing policies and some other operations. It would be better to put 4GB RAM into the appliance.
