Check Point Virtual Systems Review

Excellent technical support but the zero-day threat detection needs improvement

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case of this solution is for security.

What is most valuable?

The IPs and the VPN are the most valuable features of this solution.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see an improvement on the zero-day threat detection. It is also not very user-friendly, so it would be great if it could be less complicated and easier to operate. The dashboard needs to be easier to use.

Also, if the solution could be cheaper, it would really help, because it is very expensive. 

I would like to see sand boxing added to the new version.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Check Point Virtual Systems for ten years now.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The program is very stable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is excellent and they always responded when we had an issue.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup wasn't too complicated, but it wasn't very easy and straightforward. Deployment took us about a week. 

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

It is a very expensive program and there are additional costs despite the standard licensing fees. So I would like to see it being more affordable in the future.

What other advice do I have?

I will recommend this program to others and my rating is seven out of ten. I do recommend that users should always use the checkpoints and backup as often as they can.
