Check Point Antivirus Valuable Features

One of my favorite features is the logging. The log journal is very descriptive in what it records about the traffic. It is a good way of tracking who comes in and who goes out of your network. View full review »

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. IPS and Antivirus work in conjunction. It doesn't even cross the perimeter firewall to the inside. View full review »

* The Antivirus software blade is part of the Next Generation Threat Prevention license bundle. * The Antivirus is able to scan files downloaded from the internet or traversing the network via Check Point Gateways/Clusters. * The Antivirus software blade is configured via the Unified Threat Prevention policy in the Smart Console (at least for R80.10, the version we use). * 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. * The updates for the blade are downloaded every two hours. * As with the other Check Point blades, the visibility and logging of events are outstanding.
