They have pretty much everything you can ask for as far as features are concerned. That is because they know their market. They are focused on what they do and they do only that.

The feature that we find most valuable is the easy way of configuring it via the SmartConsole on Check Point. The configuration is very straightforward and although it has some impact on the firewall CPU and memory, it doesn't impact the IPS, for example. It allows for the scanning of downloaded files from the internet. Scanning files that our users have downloaded to check if they have any virus is the most important thing.

There is almost no impact on the security Gateway/Cluster performance after the activation of the blade, especially if you don't scan nested archives.

Sometimes the antivirus updates fail. We don't understand why because sometimes it fails but the next time you try it goes well and the firewall always has access to the internet. We don't understand why it sometimes fails.

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.

It is very difficult to get ahead of what's coming in terms of new threats, however, I think that Check Point Antivirus must improve against zero-day attacks.
