Check Point CloudGuard SaaS Pros

The feature I find to be most valuable is very much the zero-touch provisioning. I was able to be up, operational, and 100 percent functional in less than a half an hour.

We need the phishing detection and email quarantine. Once an email is considered malicious, it stays in the quarantine where we can interrogate it. We can check out why it was quarantined and see if it should be delivered to the individual.

As with most of the other Check Point products, the CloudGuard SaaS has the advanced visibility of the events and alerts.

It seems quite scalable. We don't anticipate any scaling issues. We have it deployed in the cloud.
The most valuable features would be its ability to intercept phishing emails and emails laden with malware, viruses, false links, etc.

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

Check Point CloudGuard SaaS Cons

if a phishing email were to get through and bypass the product — which very few do — it would be nice if, when a user clicked on that phishing email, they got a second-chance opportunity, a chance to double-check that they really wanted to proceed to that website.

We still get some false positives. There are times when legitimate stuff gets flagged and it could be that somebody is expecting a very important email but they don't end up getting it. On the flip side, when we alert Check Point about stuff like this, it is corrected, so they are improving. That's a plus.

From time to time, the system's administrators notice the increase in the false-positive alerts being reported by CloudGuard SaaS.

Stability has been a pain point. I was going back and forth with my product engineer and project manager for a couple of months. I had the product in a demonstration mode and wasn't satisfied with the results initially. After a few alterations and a few revisions later, it is fine.

I have learned enough to make the product stable. However, the stability has some challenges.
I would love it if they would do some work on the Postgres definition on the back-end.

We have used technical support, but their response time is very slow. It needs to be improved.
