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.

It is very intuitive. It is a point and click type of deal.
It provides visibility of events, what's going on with the environment, what we're missing with our other solution, and the user behavior.

For Threat Prevention, I was impressed with this feature and the solution's effectiveness. It has been very good.
Getting reports and finding threats in the console is easy.

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 first most remarkable thing is the integration with the Office 365 solution, which is easy, fast, and totally transparent for the user.

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.

The NAVEX metrics that I have been using on the CloudGuard dashboard cannot be exported. If they were to add report exporting capabilities on each of metric objects on the dashboard, that would be awesome.

Other vendor support teams go after fixing the issue the moment that they join the remote session. The problem that I have faced with Check Point support is that they share the case number with me, then it takes at least two days for them to join a remote session with us, even though we have asked for this timeframe to change. Even though we have already explained the problems that we are facing or the business pain points in our network on the call or email, we have to repeat the problem statements again in the console. It can take four or five days to resolve the issue from the moment they understand the problem. This includes the time to teach their R&D or internal team whatever the issue is. I have faced timeframes as long as seven to 10 days for fixing some issues.

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.

Cloud Guard would be a complete solution if Check Point added a comprehensive data loss solution that included capabilities such as bulk data transfer detection.

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.

Check Point has to continue refining the intelligence engine to minimize the number of false positives.

We are unable to export the reports from the dashboard, and if it is possible to do then it is not intuitive.
