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 Point who manages the entire network, I would like to have access on my home device or maybe a mobile app to get reports, etc. View full review »

It is a very complete product but you have to know how to parameterize it well to avoid high CPU consumption. SandBlast Agent had moments in which it had a high load, we escalated it to the CheckPoint support that helped us to stabilize it. We had a problem with the parameterization of the solution. Once corrected by following the CheckPoint instructions, everything worked normally again. It is also missed that it does not have a Linux client since some administrators use this type of operating system. View full review »

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 using the platform efficiently. View full review »

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. View full review »

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 Point online training center and I think that is something vital for most of us as customers. View full review »
