What is most valuable?

The biggest value we found was ease of deployment. I haven't really used it much, so I can't really comment beyond that. I haven't used it much, but it's working.

What needs improvement?

It isn't exactly the cheapest, but then it's Check Point. The price could be improved. I'd also love to see them add full MDM support, but I appreciate that that's not the product market. If it did come in, I'd be more than happy to look at additional modules. It was probably one of the easiest… more »

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

I bought them for 12 months and I genuinely cannot remember what I paid for them. I think it's about 100 pounds per user per year, so about 10 pounds a month per person.

What other advice do I have?

It's very basic from what I see. It's not a full MDM solution and it's restricted with other MDM provisions. If you want to use an MDM with it to do other things like your email provisioning to mobile devices, you don't have very many options. I think it's AirWatch, MobileIron, Intune, or SOTI: only… more »

The SandBlast agent is the most valuable feature for Check Point Endpoint Security. We've found that the Check Point SandBlast agent is mature.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We also used Symantec and some of their anti-malware products. Once we tested Check Point, we realized that it's a lot better.

What other advice do I have?

The anti-malware we found very good on Check Point Endpoint Security. Mainly we observe the overall deployment and then maintenance is easy. It is only one click and you… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also looked at Kaspersky.

How has it helped my organization?

In the past, we have experienced virus problems on our network. It has come in through email attachments, USB drives, internet websites, and so on. The current solution… more »

What needs improvement?

As I understand there will be a URL filtering feature included with the browser agent in the future. This will allow URL filtering without the need for a Gateway Device… more »

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

Setup costs can be kept to a minimum as Check Point offers Cloud Management which eliminates the need for on-premise hardware cost.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did use a different solution in the past. It was not performing well and we were always getting infected by malicious software. they made us switch to Checkpoint… more »

What other advice do I have?

Check Point Endpoint Security just works. You will not be disappointed.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did evaluate Avast. Which was not performing well. We also evaluated Kaspersky. Their client was a bit to resource-intensive.

How has it helped my organization?

Before we used this solution, our mail used to have a lot of spam and most of the time our main email account was blacklisted. Now it works well; we are whitelisted by all organizations, including… more »

What needs improvement?

They should provide bandwidth regulation so we can monitor and regulate bandwidth.

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

We pay on an annual basis. There are no additional fees, they mostly tell us what we have to pay. We have budgeted for it.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We had SonicWall, but it was not stable. With the number of users we needed, SonicWall became a bit overwhelmed.

What other advice do I have?

My advice is to get Check Point, even without trying it first. Use it, and you will be very, very secure. Check Point guarantees the security and stability of your network. I would rate this solution… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We looked at firewalls from Fortinet and Barracuda. We even brought guys here to test their solutions, but they were no match for Check Point. We are comfortable now with Check Point.

What is most valuable?

We used to have Fortigate, the firewall, and endpoints were only protected by an antivirus. We did not have threat management or ransomware protection. We upgraded to Check Point to get this kind of… more »

What needs improvement?

The entire industry may move to the cloud, where we don't have to worry.

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

Check Point offered very good pricing through negotiation. The licensing is done yearly. We have a three-year subscription, including premium, direct support; the Next Generation and SandBlast are for… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We changed from Fortigate because we deal with public data, government data, utility billing. It is very important to maintain security to the greatest extent possible. We can't afford to lose data… more »

What other advice do I have?

If you have a medium-size environment like ours, this solution should serve the purpose, although you may need different things. In security, one thing cannot suit everybody. We have about 500 users… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Symantec is expensive so we did not go for it. Many solutions are equally good, you could go for any of them. Check Point offered competitive pricing and additional features. Symantec may be suitable… more »

How has it helped my organization?

In the tests that we have done, this solution is working okay. We were under an attack in our environment, and the Check Point response was good because we didn't lose anything.

What needs improvement?

The antivirus is not as friendly as other solutions and can be improved. We would like to have the ability to stop and restart the service remotely, which is something that we can do easily with Symantec but have a hard time with when using… more »

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

The licensing cost for Check Point is $3 USD or $4 USD per end-user.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

In the past, I worked with Symantec for five or six years. I have also worked with a solution by McAfee. I found that the interface for Check Point is not as user-friendly as these solutions. The initial setup is also not as easy as… more »

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is researching this type of solution is to consider their budget. This does not seem to be Check Point's area, although they are getting better. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the integration with Check Point's firewalls. You can have one port, and follow the logs from both Endpoint and firewall security.

What needs improvement?

The solution could improve VPN functionality and the VPN user-interface.

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

We pay roughly 80,000 Swedish krona per year. When it comes to the firewall, it's roughly 150,000 Swedish krona yearly. There's also maintenance, of course, which is roughly 10,000 krona per month.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We previously had a Cisco solution.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others considering implementing the solution is, depending of course on if the company is looking for a new kind of firewall solution, is "Don't do it yourself." I would rate the solution… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated a few solutions, including Cylance. We evaluated the existing solutions and compared them to Check Point.

What is most valuable?

Intuitive management console has been most valuable - due to the user-friendly provision of a unified view of the endpoint threats. The SandBlast Agent, which defends endpoints and web browsers in real-time, has also been quite valuable - as well as cloud processing of the data and ease of… more »

How has it helped my organization?

It has improved the overall compliance & risk management and created significant operational efficiencies by providing a unified view of the endpoint threats. Check Point's encryption and protection features have improved the usability and employee experience with mobile storage media (e.g. USB… more »

What needs improvement?

While the product is quite good and fulfills the stated purpose, we have experienced some intermittent issues with the VPN configuration - which could be due to the internal stack as well. Check Point was quite good and responsive in troubleshooting the issue and providing a workable resolution -… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We also evaluated Palo Alto, VMware, and Darktrace.
