What is most valuable?

The multiple virtual firewalls on one box are extremely useful and the interconnection with virtual switches is simple and easy to understand. We need a product that is… more»

How has it helped my organization?

Monitoring using SmartConsole and all its features is extremely easy, and I find SmartEvent an excellent monitoring tool for spotting threats and user behaviour.

What needs improvement?

We have Microsoft CASB cloud app security and it's one of the least compatible firewalls. They really need to look at this, as both Check Point and Microsoft are major… more»

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

Look into this carefully and be sure you use all you buy. We haven't bought SandBlast or the bot solution but they look effective.

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

No previous solution. It's always been Check Point, though before the virtual firewall we used to have a Juniper fw. Now we are just Check Point because for the threats we… more»

What other advice do I have?

Make sure you can make use of the virtual firewalls and read up on the device or take a course before you implement. Or, if you get it installed, make sure you have the… more»

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the monitoring. We can easily monitor what kind of stuff comes over to our network and we can then check the dashboard and work accordingly.

How has it helped my organization?

We have a development team who asked us to open reports. We asked that they initiate traffic to see what is blocking them. We then give them reports and after that, they ask to open the report for the traffic application and we work… more»

What needs improvement?

I would like for them to develop guides. If you compare it with Cisco, you can just type out any problem you're having regarding Cisco and you will easily get a solution. With Check Point, it's not easy to get a solution.

What other advice do I have?

Ultimately Palo Alto is a very advanced firewall. This firewall can easily identify what application is running behind the network. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We researched the top firewall solutions and settled on Check Point and Palo Alto. Comparatively, both are good.

What do you think of Check Point Virtual Systems?

How has it helped my organization?

We consolidated from three management consoles and three clusters to only one, which is a big improvement. 

What is most valuable?

In general, Check Point VSX is a good solution. Its blades and VSLS (Virtual System Load Sharing) work fine.

What needs improvement?

Having a web UI in the VSX (or something similar) would be nice. However, you can do everything in the CLI.

For how long have I used the solution?

Less than one year.

Which solutions did we use previously?

We are replacing three old cluster ASA firewalls and concentrating it into an all-in-one VSX cluster. This allows our central management have more time for other tasks.
