What is most valuable?

Their integrations are pretty good as are their Sandbox solutions, their proxies, and their LTAs with API or ICAP protocols. Symantec has good experience in the field. They're good at picking up on trends. They have one of the biggest… more »

What needs improvement?

Symantec appliances need improvement. The whole appliance environment is a robust system and it needs a massive amount of storage space. If you have to increase or speed up the background storage it's a pretty complicated process. The… more »

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

The solution isn't the least expensive option. Other solutions do cost more, however.

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

We've worked with Palo Alto in the past and have just started using Check Point.

What other advice do I have?

We have been platinum partners with Symantec. The solution is at a bit of a crossroads due to its acquisition by Broadcom and they changed their EDI solution because Broadcom had an EDI network solution too. There were EDI scanners in the… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature for us is the VPN. We used GlobalProtect for the VPN, as well as site-to-site. It is very simple to use.

What needs improvement?

The support needs to be improved because it takes too long to resolve severity-one issues. Better integration with third-party products and services is needed. The need to implement their own multifactor authentication, rather than relying… more »

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

This solution is very pricey and it depends on the package that you implement. There are sometimes promotions on, which can save on costs.

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

Palo Alto was the first solution of this type that we used. However, we have recently purchased Cisco Firepower and no longer work with Palo Alto products. Prior to Firepower being released, Palo Alto was very simple and better than Cisco… more »

What other advice do I have?

The Palo Alto models that we were using are the PA800-500 and PA830. I have seen people in different organizations and different industries set their firewall solutions up in different ways. It depends on the level of support, in terms of… more »

What is most valuable?

The server appliance is good.

What needs improvement?

Technical packaging could be improved. It would be helpful to receive access to the administration of the product.

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

The pricing is not reasonable. The user fee is not as high but the maintenance fee is expensive.

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

Previously, we have not used another solution, because it's a compliment to TruePoint Securities. The CheckPoint product is very strong, but we have found that some cases on CheckPoint lessons are not on the list.

What other advice do I have?

For the next project, we will be doing comparisons for massive attacks. We have been customers for five years and we have a very good relationship with them. It's not the first line of defense. It's for us to subline of defense itself. It… more »
