What do you think of Check Point VSX?

Improvements to My Organization: We consolidated from three management consoles and three clusters to only one, which is a big improvement.  • Valuable Features: In general, Check Point VSX is a good solution. Its blades and VSLS (Virtual System Load Sharing) work fine. • Room for Improvement: Having a web UI in the VSX (or something similar) would be nice. However, you can do everything in the CLI. • Use of Solution: Less than one year. • Previous Solutions: 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.
