What is most valuable?

The number of IPS protections is amazing - after the latest update, I see more than 11000 in the SmartConsole. All the protections are tagged and categorized by the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

I think that the security of our DataCenter has been increased to a large extent by activating of the Check Point Intrusion Prevention System software blade. Before that… more»

What needs improvement?

In my opinion, the Check Point software engineers should works on the performance of the blade - when it is activated with the big number of the protections in place, the… more»

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

The overall cost of the solution is really high. You should properly scale the setup you are planning to purchase. The licensing model is simple, but some of the software… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Before the Check Point IPS, we relied on the simple stateful firewalls configured on Cisco switches and routers and moved to Check Point to get improved security against… more»

What other advice do I have?

The correct performance sizing is essential for this kind of software - use the tools provided by the vendor, and consult the sales if you are still not sure.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate the other solutions.

What is most valuable?

I really like their general IT. I like how it's possible for me to block other countries immediately if I see the need to do so. The initial setup is a breeze.

What needs improvement?

The support the solution offers needs a lot of improvement. GFI took over the product and since the takeover, the support, the backups, the after-sales support, etc., has basically dropped off quite a bit. When it comes to dealing with updates, there are often bugs on the solution. They should do a… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I've previously come across Barracuda. I've spoken to the team there. In terms of meeting our needs, I've found that, with a lot of other products, it's very modular. Kerio tends to keep everything in-house. Due to that, there are certain functionalities that I prefer to have with Kerio as opposed… more»

What other advice do I have?

We're using the latest version of the solution. I would recommend the solution. It doesn't take too many people to set it up or maintain it, like, for example, Cisco, which is a bit more complex and difficult. I would rate the solution seven out of ten, and that's mostly due to the fact that their… more»

What is most valuable?

The solution offers a feature to show which traffic is the highest on the network, and which traffic is the lowest. There's also a feature that scans incoming and outgoing traffic, and one feature that is able to flag a suspicious IP… more»

How has it helped my organization?

There have been updates to the solution recently that have ramped up protection. Before this, we had a lot of hacks on the network, specifically in the cloud environment. After the proper implementation of that product, we've not had one… more»

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to improve Reverse DNS functionalities. Right now, when you check the IP address, it tells all. It assumes that that IP address is locally available on the inside. When the request is going back to me it's supposed to do… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We've previously used Cisco, Salesforce, and Fortinet. We last used Salesforce, and we mainly switched due to the cost of the solution.

What other advice do I have?

We use both the cloud and on-premises deployment models. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.
