Good message encryption and validation features, but the console should be more user-friendly

What is our primary use case?

Check Point makes up part of our security solution in all of our locations across India. We are in the eCommerce industry and one of the things that we do is set up tickets for moviegoers. We have categorized our requirements as per the online penetration of our booking agents. As an example, in one of our locations, we have a penetration of filling online tickets that is reaching up to 85%. It is important that this system is safeguarded to ensure that we are not exploited on the ticketing platform using the OCR codes that we are generating and sending to our customers. As the tickets are… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "Using Check Point has helped us to safeguard our environment and help to protect against spam, as well as other types of attacks against our network."
  • "The user should be able to perform a real-time search of the objects and see the messages."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is that it is a robust and reliable platform. With respect to messaging and firewall products, all of them are pretty good but it depends on your scenario. I would say that Check Point has the best security, the messaging protocols are pretty good, and the reliability is higher than competing products by Palo Alto and Juniper. When adopting Check Point, your skill is one of the key points to consider. This is a good solution but there are certain complexities that need to be made more user-friendly. It should be more manageable from an IT…

Flexible configuration, straightforward to set up, and false positive errors are minimal

What is our primary use case?

Our company works in the area of developing and delivering online gambling platforms. The Check Point Next-Generation Firewalls are the core security solution we use for the protection of our DataCenter environment, located in Asia (Taiwan). The environment has about 50 physical servers as virtualization hosts, and we have two HA Clusters that consist of 2x5400 hardware appliances, managed by an OpenServer Security Management Server on a Virtual Machine (KVM), all running on R80.10 with the latest JumboHotfix. The Check Point Anti-Spam and Email Security Software Blade is one of the numerous… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "I like the flexible configuration set, e.g. both the content-based and the IP reputation anti-spam are supported, but you may choose to disable the mechanism you don't like."
  • "I think that the pricing for the Check Point products should be reconsidered, as we found it to be quite expensive to purchase and to maintain."

Good support and reporting, but the multi-appliance setup process is complex

What is our primary use case?

The primary use case is to protect the organization from any attack generated via email. As most of the attacks in recent days are via email, the organization has to be equipped and ready to mitigate this type of attack at the perimeter level, before it has been delivered to the user mailbox or endpoint. Basic anti-spam filters are not capable of protecting against the latest generation of attacks. So, for protecting the organization against this sophisticated or targeted attack, we concluded that the next generation of Email Security solutions is a must. Ultimately, it should be able to… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution can be monitored on a single dashboard with actionable insights and reporting."
  • "It does not provide for standalone configuration on the security gateway. Instead, you need to have a management server/smart console for managing it."

What other advice do I have?

This solution should be designed to support all functionality, including use as an email gateway in case the functionality is required, as well as having a strong anti-spam module

Would benefit from aggregate logging capabilities, and it does not scale to large email volume

What is our primary use case?

Like any company, we needed an antispam product so we implemented this solution. Buying this blade was convenient from an economic point of view and we took advantage of it to have a product that is both well-integrated and easy to manage.

Pros and Cons

  • "This product integrates well and is easy to manage."
  • "It would be useful to have more logs and in aggregate mode, perhaps through a specific report, that can be more easily used for troubleshooting."

What other advice do I have?

Unfortunately, the product has not proved up to par. Every component has to do its job; it is an excellent advanced firewall solution and we cannot expect it to do everything but the Spam and Email Blade must do its job well as Check Point does.
