Automatically Deletes Ransomware and Restores the Encrypted Files

What is our primary use case?

We have implemented Check Point for endpoint protection.

Pros and Cons

  • "We had a ransomware attack and the SandBlast agent automatically picked up the ransomware."
  • "One area of this product that has room for improvement is the disc encryption."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to others that are looking to implement Check Point Endpoint Security is that it's very secure. The only issue is that the disc encryption is bound to the hardware in the machine that it's in. It takes a bit long to decrypt the hard drive. That's the only issue. I'd give Check Point Endpoint Security about a nine out of ten.

Guarantees the security and stability of your network

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use this solution as the main firewall for the perimeter of the hospital. We use the firewall itself for URL filtering, application filtering, and identity awareness.

Pros and Cons

  • "Before we used this solution, our mail was blacklisted. Now we are white listed by all organizations, including Google. Also the security of our institution has really improved."
  • "They should provide bandwidth regulation, so we can monitor and regulate bandwidth."

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 as nine out of ten.

Prevents malware from entering via the internet or USB drives

What is our primary use case?

We are an international systems integrator company for Check Point Endpoint Security software solutions.

Pros and Cons

  • "The SandBlast agent is the most valuable feature for Check Point Endpoint Security. We've found that the Check Point SandBlast agent is mature."
  • "The remote deployment with Check Point Endpoint Security requires improvement. We have to depend on some of their deployment tools. I would like a system endpoint protection management tool or a remote deployment tool."

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 can deploy everything. Whoever wants their data secure, and they want to have peace of mind, make sure to go with the anti-malware capabilities on the SandBlast Agent. We consider Check Point Endpoint Security to be one of the best systems for SAP. The zero-day anti-exploit solutions should be there with Check Point Endpoint Security. Because of the budget, people keep the software, but my advice is that it is also a must-have…

End-user management facilities are good, and there are innovations in every version

What is our primary use case?

We use it to help clients solve their security problems.

Pros and Cons

  • "The end-user facilities for managing the tool are good."
  • "Areas that have room for improvement are the scope of the product and, while I think the support is good, they can improve support as well."

What other advice do I have?

Consider the solution as one of your options because it's one of the top tools. I rate this solution at nine out of ten because it covers what it needs to cover. As always, there is room to improve, but I think it's a good product.

Gives us a forensics backbone into when something happens on a machine. It can let us know what happened and where it came from.

What is our primary use case?

We were looking to upgrade our protection to our endpoints, giving us more of a forensics backbone into when something happens on a machine. The product can let us know what happened, where it came from, etc. Our primary use case is for more insight into what is happening.

Pros and Cons

  • "Its ease of use is the most valuable feature. We had existing endpoints and it was an easy upgrade process. The interface board is also easy to use."
  • "There was a learning curve for our general population of employees (the user)."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it an eight out of ten. I like product. I was not part of the decision-making process. I was just tasked with deploying the solution.

Offers the most secure and surefire way to tackle ransomware

What is our primary use case?

My primary use of this solution is to supplement my existing antivirus and enable/enhance my anti-ransomware capabilities.

Pros and Cons

  • "Its ability to rollback anti-ransomware once an attack has started is the most valuable feature."
  • "It needs to include built-in deployment. This will make the job easier rather than having to go and dig up an Active Directory deployment along with policy objects."

What other advice do I have?

Don't think about getting the product. Just do it. I would rate it a ten out of ten. No other product on the market is able to rollback a ransomware attack once it has started.

When we have reached out to support, they have been quick to respond
We use Checkpoint here, and are currently in the process of planning a major from the standalone client to the full console version. They had some issues in the past with the OS X and Windows versions not being in sync, but with the latest release E80 release, the clients are identical. There are still a few gaps, such as not supporting Fusion drives, but overall, things have been great. Deployment has been simple: We create a composer package that pushes the installer and our installation profile onto the client, and then call a script to run through the pkg installer. It has worked flawlessly for us. As far as management goes, the reason we are moving to the console version is to have better reporting. Currently, the encryption files are written to a File share, and that is…

Works well unless you need to upgrade then compatibility issues may arise.

What other advice do I have?

All in all, endpoint security does the basics of blocking unauthorized software, malware, virus, etc. It is client/server based software. Works good unless you need to upgrade then compatibility issues may arise. Would recommend for any user. Runs behind the scenes, and the scans are designed to run without effecting a user ability to work on their pc.

I would recommend endpoint security to anyone because it worked for me; no security issues with end devices for more than a year now.

What other advice do I have?

Endpoint security is implemented on client-server network model to ensure that end devices in the network are totally secure before having access to the network. Endpoint security can be implemented as a firewall or an anti-virus program that can be configured to include intrusion detection properties. It is also used in cloud computing and can be hosted or used on-site. It is a very flexible and efficient form of desktop security and I have used it for a very long time.
