URL filtering and application control help us to secure against malicious websites and applications

What is our primary use case?

We have the Check Point Firewall as a perimeter gateway and we are using it across seven geolocations. Each location has a cluster. We use it to block high-risk and malicious websites and applications. It enforces compliance policies and regulations at each of the sites. With this Web gateway, we are secure and it protects our applications or URL with multi-layer architecture security. We are using web security, URL filtering, and antivirus, and we will enable the HTTPS inspection shorty.

Pros and Cons

  • "Application control allows the administrator to create granular policies based on users to allow, block, or limit access."
  • "Most of the time, we are struggling when it comes to getting support."

What other advice do I have?

In summary, Check Point Web Security is a very good solution for us. We have been using it for a long time and we use all of the aspects. For security concerns, Check Point Web Security is the best solution with features such as URL filtering, application control, and antivirus.

The firewall feature is good but the program is way too expensive

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is as firewall and, because I'm a student, when I work on my studies.

Pros and Cons

  • "The interface is simply amazing."
  • "There should be an improvement in interface integration."

What other advice do I have?

I will recommend this product to others, but I think there should be an improvement in interface integration. And a drop in price would also be a huge improvement. If I had to rate Check Point Web Gateway from one to ten, I will give it a seven.
