We can create a domain to separate and segregate functions and services

What is our primary use case?

We use it as a perimeter firewall. We need to put all the security inside of our data center and Check Point was the first option to use it as the firewall in order to offer all of our services via the internet.

Pros and Cons

  • "We can create a domain to separate and segregate some functions, some services."
  • "As we don't have a representative of Check Point in Mozambique, this makes it very difficult when we have some issues to resolve."

What other advice do I have?

If we're talking about value, in my opinion, the financial institutions are the companies that I see that can use this most. I like it because it's user-friendly. You can use it without a lot of complexity. Of course, I sent my staff for training but only to guarantee that they are certified to use it. I would suggest you first go for training before you implement the solution. I would rate this solution 9 out of 10. It was very easy for us to implement this solution. And this has all the features that we need to use it. Of course, people say that FortiGate, in comparison, is easier than this…

Ease to manage and connect to other solutions

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is very robust."
  • "The solution should be more user-friendly."

What other advice do I have?

In 2017 I passed the exam, so I'm a certified Check Point administration user. Technology-wise, I think Check Point is more robust than FortiGate. Since I have installed the solution everything is working very great. It is easy to configure a Check Point solution with a different operating system. That is one thing I really like about it. And that is not as easy with FortiGate or other solutions. I would advise people to try Check Point because you cannot know how great is until you try it. I recommend that you try it once, and then you will definitely see the difference between Check Point…

Supports several Blades on the same appliance, but expensive for smaller companies

Pros and Cons

  • "The UTM platform has been the most valuable."
  • "Specifically on the user experience, sometimes the set up of things, such as the VPN SSL, takes a lot of time to load and a lot of time to get up and running on every session."

What other advice do I have?

My only recommendation is to get proper sizing of the company or of the environment they're in and to decide if they are going for two layers of firewalls or only one layer. That's the major difference between implementations. You should start small because of the amount of money. If you have the constraints of buying an appliance that would not suit some VPN constraints or IPSec tunnels that the company might require and if you're going on different layers or implementing more than one layer of firewall, you are spreading the load between them and that's the main issue. That's on top of the…

Good filtering features but has terrible technical support

What is our primary use case?

We were developing something called a remote monitoring center and we wanted to have many plans logging into and having a VPN connection to their networks.

Pros and Cons

  • "The filtering was very good."
  • "Technical support was very bad because the supplier who sold it to us, wasn't very supportive, and he wouldn't giving us direct links to the OEM."

What other advice do I have?

We've actually stopped using it. We switched to FortiGate because we had side to side VPNs that were are actually bringing issues with the UTM itself, so we had to swap it over. I would rate the overall solution a six out of 10. There's room for improvement. I think it has the potential to do so much, but it is limited to some features. Or maybe it didn't serve my purpose as I expected it to. That's why I now think there is a bit of reservation on my end for using the product. In terms of advice, I'd say that anyone going with the solution should really know the product before they purchase…

Enables us to log all details and troubleshoot when a problem occurs

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution as a firewall function for levels 3 and 4.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature for us was to implement negligent functionality, to direct functionality to viewer control and application control so we could disconnect, and at the same time, we installed checkpoints. We disconnected our proxy."
  • "The solution could be improved if there was a better way to report. The reporting functionality is not really good. Even though it's not the major function. Maybe adding a way to make a custom report."

What other advice do I have?

I would always recommend the product. The only reason why we switched from Check Point, in fact, to Fortinet, is because we have a remote site in Algeria. There's an embargo. We cannot import Check Point products in Algeria. I would rate this product 8 out of 10. Ten means perfect to me and no product is perfect.
