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

What is most valuable?

The sandboxing feature: I like the entire process. It's one thing for it to detect, but another thing to have a remediation plan. It actually extracts out what we need to… more »

How has it helped my organization?

In terms of network usage, it actually reduced the amount of malicious attacks that we had. Before, we really didn't have a secure network. Each endpoint had to protect… more »

What needs improvement?

There should be some way of managing this solution outside the organization's network, possibly with some type of remote access. For example, if I'm the admin of Check… more »

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

As we grow, we've been given room to add additional licenses in terms of all our endpoints. In terms of licensing, have a buffer zone around your projects in terms of the… more »

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

We were previously using Sophos. We switched to Check Point because the pricing was much cheaper (by 25 percent).

What other advice do I have?

It is a great fit for any organization. I would rate the solution a 10 out of 10.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We only evaluated Check Point and Sophos. There are only two really good cybersecurity solutions locally. You are either doing Sophos or Check Point. It is one or the… more »

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

The cost of the solution is similar to other products on the market.

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

Previously, we used third-party antivirus software and switched to Check Point SandBlast Agent for its ease of integration with other Check Point products and to improve… more »

What other advice do I have?

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 has no client for linux.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have been evaluating other products, such as Bitdefender and Broadcom (Symantec Enterprise).

Most of EDR solutions which detect malware based on AI or ML. Check Point provides the most sophisticated attack vector information by combining these two. The forensic analysis gives detail information about host compromised how exact… more »

What is most valuable?

Its ease of use is the most valuable feature. The interface board is also easy to use. We had existing endpoints, and it was an easy upgrade process.

How has it helped my organization?

We have a lot of mobile users who work on their laptops from home. Sometimes people travel, they'll go away and connect to hotel or airport WiFis. We had an instance where somebody connected to what they thought was free public WiFi, and it actually infected the machine. SandBlast was able to catch… more »

What needs improvement?

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.

What is most valuable?

The best thing is that it fits into all environments, which gives any organization a chance to use it intuitively without worrying about the nature of their industry.

How has it helped my organization?

The platform works on its own and it does not need to have an assigned employee to monitor how it's working, thus bringing efficiency into our company. It fit well into our environment, allowing us to fight any attempt to corrupt computer resources.

What needs improvement?

Some of the less tech-savvy users sometimes find it difficult in adjusting and learning how to use the platform. In some areas, the user-communities that ought to help are not readily available. Perhaps in the future, the vendor ought to send a sales representative or a knowledgeable person to each buyer to assess how they are using the platform. In case of any challenges, they should help them in… more »

What is most valuable?

Its ability to rollback anti-ransomware once an attack has started is the most valuable feature.

What needs improvement?

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.

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

We previously used Symantec Endpoint. Our reason for switching is because Check Point offers the most secure and surefire way to tackle ransomware. I was part of the decision-making process.

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.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We did not consider any other vendors during the evaluation process.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features are the availability, the ease of checking current logs of blocks, and the option to update the system easily.

How has it helped my organization?

Security has been improved. We now feel more secure with our PCs, even more with the non-technical persons.

What needs improvement?

The solution could be improved in the future with a way to provide online training to customers for free, as other providers do. Ideally, it would be not only for this solution but for all of their systems. I found that there is no Check… more »

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

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated Symantec before selecting Check Point.
