Check Point SandBlast Agent Primary Use Case

Sumit B.
Consultant at Cognizant
Our use case for SandBlast Agent is that our team is set up in multiple geographies, such as, India, Sri Lanka, UK, North America, and Australia (where we have a bit of business). We have courses for an educational client which need go to market, schools, instructors for hire, and students. Given that there was COVID-19 and a lockdown, there was an increase in the digital demand for learning courses. So, we wanted to secure our courses from cyber attacks. Thus, we wanted an end-to-end security system in place that would prevent/save us from cyber attacks and protect our sensitive data. Systems can be accessed on multiple devices, whether they be laptops, Macs, Windows, or mobile devices. Those devices could be connected to a home or public network on a platform, like a Chrome browser, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari. We have been able to track this through reports by seeing how vulnerable those agents are to attacks. Then, we determine how they can become more secure, so we can stay on the cloud and mobile devices. These are the areas where we are trying to use their reports and tighten our security, putting more systems in place to prevent attacks. View full review »

We use it to manage our entire network and protect network traffic in terms of files that go out and come in. This protects our network between any platform we access or interactions between our clients and us. Also, it helps to monitor and block malicious applications, then it prevents these sites from accessing our stuff. We use it for the endpoints and all the additional points which access the network in the organization. It protects everything across the board, from the server to the many other devices, like your phones and laptops. View full review »

We were looking for a solution as complete as possible to replace the existing antivirus and, if possible, integrate it with other products that we have, such as the CheckPoint firewall. We decided to use the Check Point SandBlast agent to prevent ransomware on users' computers. We subsequently expanded the scope of the solution to detect malicious activity on our network. It is a very complete product but you have to know how to parameterize it well to avoid high CPU consumption. It is also missed that it does not have a client for Linux. View full review »

Previously, one of our clients was using Symantec and we provided POV to them with Check Point SandBlast agent after that customer found that it's very easy and stable to use after E83 version released. There were many bugs or cosmetic issues that Check Point rectified and provided the stable version. It helps us to detect running malicious activity in our network and after the COVID situation, most users are working from home where it becomes very difficult for IT admin to maintain security so such type of solution definitely helps us to prevent cyber attacks.

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. View full review »

The platform is our anti-ransomware agent, where it helps us prevent any cyber-attack. We find it intuitive, as it unpacks files and decrypts any hidden malware, thus enabling us to work in a safe environment and keep our own data, as well as that of our customers, safe and secure. Our work environment is the banking industry and on a daily basis, we handle lots of customer data. This makes us a potential target for malware attacks but with the platform in place, we are able to shun all of that. View full review »

In our environment, we didn't have an "official" security system. After implementing the Check Point SandBlast Agent system, we have benefited from getting a strong security system that gives us stability and security on our internal network. View full review »
