Check Point UTM-1 [EOL] Review

The most important features are performance and easy management.

What is most valuable?

The most important features are performance and ease of management.

How has it helped my organization?

The solution helped in the identification and categorization of access and provided a high index of traffic analysis.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see improvements in the report area. Some features should be integrated and not licensed separately.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for seven years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I did not encounter any issues with stability.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I did not encounter any issues with scalability.

How are customer service and technical support?

I would give technical support a rating of seven out of 10.

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

We used other solutions before this one. We switched because we needed to increase our level of analysis, as well as improve our solution management.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was straightforward. We did not find it complex, as we narrowed it down in advance and chose to reformulate rules that we did not identify as pertinent.

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

Carefully evaluate the predominant type of traffic, SSL or other, as this reflects on CPU and memory usage. It will directly reflect the value of the investment.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Palo Alto, Cisco, and Fortinet.

What other advice do I have?

I would focus on training. A team that has difficulty operating the product will certainly not be able to enjoy the features and differentials that the product offers.
