We like the URL content filtering, that is one of the most valuable features.
It also enables us to see where privacy is a concern, apps that are leaking privacy. Having an idea as to how these apps are being protected offers some level of security to the device and back into our corporate network.

It monitors all the URLs that a user goes to on their phone and so we can see what they're looking at and we can limit that. Certain topics are not allowed to be accessed. They're monitoring their apps and they rate them based upon how big of a security risk that individual app is based on their ratings. And so we're able to limit those as well and allow people to have some that may be a low risk, but still a risk, but we may allow that for our users whereas we block medium and high risk.

I really like the application scanning portion where it scans your current applications and any new applications that you add to the device to let you know if it is malicious.

The solution has clients for both Android and Apple devices, so all of our employees' devices are protected.

I really like the application scanning feature that scans all of the installed applications, and not only what appears in the add or remove apps, and then reports the results in the console.

Check Point Harmony Mobile Cons

We don't have Google MDM being supported by the solution as of yet. It is a feature requirement... They are aware that it is something that I need. My objective is to be able to have the MDM integration and to have some level of control over the asset itself.

Integration needs improvement. We use Check Point for email. We use Check Point Capsule Workspace and I wish that it tied into that better and was integrated with their email application so that when it's secure, then they're able to access their email and it could be deployed as one group instead of two separate applications. It's a little bit more work for us to deploy both of those so it'd be nice if they could be integrated.

The product does not provide deep capabilities for sharing specific data to users or groups separately, nor does it provide visibility as to whether a user has access to the data or not.

In the next release, I would like to see a Wi-Fi scanner to be able to identify whether a wireless network is malicious before you join it.

I think that the pricing for the Check Point products should be reconsidered, as we found it to be quite expensive to purchase and to maintain.

From a user's perspective, of course, it is always better when it is cheaper in price.

Compatibility with other Mobile Device Management (MDM) products on the market should be improved, ensuring correct operation between SandBlast Mobile and MDM.

The deployment in the Android system is very simple but in the case of iOS, it is more complicated so the users require attention from our CAU.

The feature set between the Android and Apple devices is not fully equal.

Some configuration options inside the management console are a little confusing because the interface is not always user-friendly.
