I would say that the installation is straightforward when you have learned about the architecture. Before that, the installations may be a little confusing. View full review »

The initial setup was complex because we were using a complex networking architecture. It took us about two days to implement the solution. For administration of all of this infrastructure, we need two people. For deployment and maintenance, we need just one person. View full review »

This initial setup of this solution is complex. The preparation for deployment took two days, and the deployment itself took about two hours. We have three staff who are responsible for maintaining the firewall, although there are more tasks that they handle, in addition to it. View full review »

The issue normally is getting SIC working between the gws and the management server. Actually it's reasonably straightforward, though you have to get it right. It used to be you had to have a certain type of disk drive but this is a better solution. View full review »

The initial setup of this solution is in-between, but more on the complex side. It's not the most complex product that I've worked with, but definitely not the simplest product that I've worked with. View full review »

The initial setup is difficult. It took me three tries to get it right. The setup took two or three hours. We migrated from an old to a new one. It's not so complex but Check Point is complex in comparison to other firewalls. For example, Palo Alto is easier to install than Check Point. View full review »
