Check Point Antivirus Room for Improvement

I think this product is made by the market leaders. They have pretty much everything you can ask for as far as features are concerned. The pricing is high and I think it could be more competitive if it was lower. They might resolve that difference by offering even more features. Another feature I'd like to see is a different way to handle load balancing on the firewall. Sometimes when you are using a firewall, you need another layer to properly balance your traffic. Right now that means adding more equipment, which is expensive. If Check Point could offer another option for a different way of doing load balancing, that would be a cost-savings for the client. Another option might be offering data fusion. Sometimes you can combine the data stream. If you can and you do, you will have one stream instead of having multiple streams. That is also very cost-saving when you can fuse the data. View full review »

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. View full review »

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. Maintenance requires that the licenses and the support services be prolonged regularly. Alternatively, they should create some additional bundles of the software blades with significant discounts in addition to the current Next Generation Threat Prevention & SandBlast (NGTX) and Next Generation Threat Prevention (NGTP) offers. We also had several support cases opened for software issues, but none of them were connected with the Check Point Antivirus software blade. View full review »

The pricing can be improved. The interface could be more user-friendly. The initial setup and configuration should be simplified. View full review »
