What is most valuable?

The most valuable features would be its ability to intercept phishing emails and emails laden with malware, viruses, false links, etc. The ability to sandbox, extract and… more»

How has it helped my organization?

My company is a singular key player in a major industry in my country so we are a target at all times for phishing campaigns. We have had bad experiences in the past… more»

What needs improvement?

I have a keen interest in being able to consolidate and being able to have one viewpoint. I want to be able to integrate directly into our centralized login. I would love… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Do a full feature evaluation (interactive) with a support person. That is what I did.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

A colleague recommend the Check Point solution after we had such significant disruptions with the phishing email campaign. So, we tried it out.

What other advice do I have?

I have been quite pleased with the solution. You have nothing to lose by trying out Check Point. I would rate it an eight out of ten with room for improvement.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also considered Fortinet and Proofpoint. We always look at things like stability, feature set, the position in the market, maturity of the product, cost (because we… more»

What is most valuable?

It is the collaboration between users inside the company. It is a big advantage with Check Point to be able to work together on the same document.

How has it helped my organization?

It is a little bit new, but the sharing of documentation is clearly easier now. It is easier to work within your teams using the Check Point solution so you can easily share a file without sending it by mail. This is an advantage, being… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like some features that manage projects in more flexible ways, like smart chips. It would be very interesting to share tasks in a very flexible way inside a team or to reorganize planning for a certain project in a very… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were using Notes before, but it was quite obsolete. The idea was to replace it with something new, in the cloud, so this was our main objective around the Check Point and Office 365 deployment.

What other advice do I have?

It is a major concern for us is to give people enough knowledge to use the product in the proper way. Now it is more about training and management as we have to organize to make sure that everybody is onboard and using the tool in the… more»

What is most valuable?

It is what we use mainly for on-premise. That is really what has us using the product, as it is sort of our standard for data centers.

How has it helped my organization?

Moving into the cloud without having to change a lot of our internal processes and retrain staff is one of the biggest benefits of this solution.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more focus on east-west traffic inspection and AWS. Things are changing very quickly in the cloud. There is a lot more maturing that needs to happen as far as CloudGuard goes… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We did not use anything previously. Going to the cloud was a new requirement for us.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a six out of ten. Other vendors typically are working with hardware acceleration and various other products, which you can't get in the cloud. One of the key things that made us more… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also considered Fortinet. Check Point has better overall integration with Azure. I was part of the decision-making process.

What is most valuable?

The API is its most valuable feature. On the API side, relative to the rest of the market, Check Point is decades ahead of its competitors. The APIs on some of their competitors are so archaic, they are not even usable.

How has it helped my organization?

The automated rule cleanups and automated policy installs have improved my customers' organizations.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see them do some work on the database back-end and how it is supported, in terms of performance, cleanup, and scalability. In particular, I would love it if they would do some work on the Postgres definition on the back-end.

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a ten out of ten. It is the best on the market right now. It is not perfect by any means, and it has its challenges, but every product does. I would advise someone considering this solution to stop wasting your time and get… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I was the decision process. I wrote the code for it. I only work with Check Point.

What is most valuable?

Elasticsearch and sandboxing are the most valuable features. Check Point is very good for threat protection, which is our customers' primary concern. Everyday, our customers are asking about new… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The main benefit is to the user. Hackers can't steal their information.

What needs improvement?

The QoS on the Elastic Cloud could use improvement.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We switched to Check Point because of the easier deployment on the cloud. It's very strong.

What other advice do I have?

Try out Check Point. It is a good solution. I would rate it an eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Fortinet. Check Point is a very strong competitor versus Palo Alto.

What is most valuable?

* Traps prevention * Security on the cloud

How has it helped my organization?

Right now, we have a hybrid infrastructure. We needed security on the cloud, and this solution has provided the security that we were lacking.

What needs improvement?

The product can still grow.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

We were not on the cloud before. We're a big Check Point customer. Our secure perimeter is checkpoint, so we needed security for the cloud. So, it was a pretty easy decision right there. We evaluated… more»

What other advice do I have?

Look into it. I like how straightforward it is and simple it is to implement in the cloud.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Cisco's cloud products since we have a lot of Cisco products.

The ease of use and price point per user are its two most valuable features. 

What needs improvement?

I would like for them to develop the ability to add additional users within a pod, where it is round robin.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability is very good. It is easy to use, which makes it easy for the end user.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In terms of scalability, adding licenses is straightforward. The price point for adding additional users is easy to understand.

How are customer service and technical support?

Lateral data center: Check Point really adds value with east-west protection in the data center.

How has it helped my organization?

It is a value proposition in the market.

What needs improvement?

There is always room for improvement and growth.

Check Point is a leader in the market. It is a very sound product. Most people think that when they're with a cloud provider that they're protected through the nature of being in somebody else's cloud. This is where Check Point adds value.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Palo Alto and Fortinet are some of the other vendors constantly running to the market.
