Check Point Endpoint Remote Access VPN Primary Use Case

We use a Check Point Endpoint Remote Access VPN client along with Check Point SSL VPN, which allows users to connect to our firewall who don't have the client, e.g., if they have a MacBook, then we don't have a client for them. We allow them to connect to the firewall over the browser. That had a bunch of problems, but they have resolved those this year. The use case is to allow people to connect to our firewall on-premise. We also have Check Point firewalls in the cloud, which people can connect to as well. Then they can access resources either in our on-premise environment that they need to access, such as, their computers, the Intranet, Salesforce, or our production applications. Also, in AWS, they can access other types of applications, like WorkSpaces, or our production applications there, which allows them to work. It lets them have access to their email, because they're not able to access their email unless they are VPN'd in, etc. We keep everything locked down to the VPN. If that's not working, then our company will not be able to work. It was very finicky last year, and it's working now. It has been perfect this year. We don't use the Endpoint Remote Access VPN client for too much. We use its local firewall, which is valuable, but we don't really use SandBlast. I know you can add the SandBlast module along with all these other modules. We literally just use it so our users can connect on-prem. View full review »

The primary use case is to allow our employees to connect to the firewall on-premises, then they can access our office resources. This includes their respective computer, the intranet, shared files, and local applications, even if they are outside of the organization's network. Our production will be locked down if my VPN stops working, leaving the company unable to work. As such, this is a crucial service for us and resources need to be available for each of our users when working remotely. View full review »
