Network Security Engineer/Architect at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
Our primary use case of Check Point Application Control is to filter which application categories we want to allow our organization members to have access to so that they are secured. For example, we don't allow access to malicious applications and some categories that could be threats. We only allow organization members to access secure applications and applications that are aligned with the company's strategy. It also enables us to save internet bandwidth by filtering applications that are not work-related. View full review »

The Check Point Application Control blade provides application security and identity control for our organization. It gives us very easy to create policies based on users and groups. We use Critical Risk and Anonymizers, P2P file sharing, Spyware, and Remote admin categories. We use Application Control in two ways, separate rule base and with access policy as well. My all over experience is good. View full review »
