We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Moving into the cloud without having to change a lot of our internal processes and retrain staff is one of the biggest benefits of this solution.""It is scalable. It's a cloud solution, so it's easy to implement and manage.""I like how straightforward it is and simple it is to implement in the cloud.""Auto-scaling and zero touch are valuable features.""What's most valuable to me is that it's a contiguous solution that aligns well with the components that we've relied on and trusted from a traditional hardware, firewall, and unified threat management system. My engineers and analysts don't have to learn another platform. We have already entrusted our security controls to Check Point for perimeter and physical security, and now we can do so at the virtual layer as well, which is key to us.""We have found the overall functionality of the product to be exactly similar to the physical product. The one good advantage is that it is cloud-based and can be deployed either as a part of a scale set or one can shut down the virtual machine and adjust the physical parameters of the virtual machine easily and bring it right back up.""I find it really useful that CloudGuard supports all the main players on the Public Clouds market including AWS, GCP, and Azure, as well as some exotic ones like Alibaba Cloud, Oracle Cloud, and IBM Cloud.""The visibility, the one-pane-of-glass which allows me to see all of my edge protection through one window and one log, is great. Monitoring everything through that one pane of glass is extremely valuable."

"It is connected into an intelligence database and is quick to pick up new threats. It also reduces my workload with its speed and the protection that it provides.""Trend Micro gave our security teams a certain degree of comfort by just having it in the background, as they have familiarity with the product.""There is a degree of set it and forget it in regards to the actual endpoints and what you can do with the console, which is nice.""Their support is good. They are responsive, which is nice.""The integration and configuration of this product in our AWS environment was good. We haven't had any problems at all.""The file integrity and log inspection are game-changing features for us.""It provides the type of data and availability that we need to have. We don't have to worry about intrusions.""For day-to-day efficiency, it provides a good dashboard, so our team can be active 24/7 instead of doing a lot of manual stuff. We just look at the dashboard, and it's all done."

Cons
"I would like to see more focus on east-west traffic inspection and AWS.""The product can still grow.""Zero touch removes any independence for configuring.""It's meeting our needs at this time. If I could make it better, it would be by making it more standalone. That would be beneficial to us. I say that because our current platform for virtualization is VMware. The issue isn't any fault of Check Point, it's more how the virtualization platform partners allow for that partnership and integration. There has to be close ties and partnerships between the vendors to ensure interoperability and sup-portability. There is only so far that Check Point, or any security vendor technology can go without the partnership and enablement of the virtualization platform vendor as it relies on "Service Insertion" to maintain optimal performance.""I think they have pretty much mastered what can be done. There are some nuances like when you fail over from one cluster member to the other, the external IP address takes about two minutes to fail over.""I hope that Check Point continues to improve its technical documentation regarding the Check Point CloudGuard IaaS gateway and management system.""The biggest room for improvement is that, for a long time now, they've moved everything over to R80 but they still maintain some of the stuff in the old dashboard. They need to "buy in" and move everything to the modern dashboard so that you don't have to go to one place and to another place, at times, to configure the environment. It's time they just finish what they started and put everything in the new, modern dashboard.""The convergence time between cluster members is still not perfect. It's far away from what we get in traditional appliances. If a company wants to move mission-critical applications for an environment to the cloud, it somehow has to accept that it could have downtime of up to 40 seconds, until cluster members switch virtual IP addresses between themselves and start accepting the traffic. That is a little bit too high in my opinion. It's not fully Check Point's fault, because it's a hybrid mechanism with AWS. The blame is 50/50."

"The working interface and the reports for non-technical people could use improvement. They are a bit scary.""AWS products could become more compatible with intrusion detection products leveraging help from Trend Micro.""If I had more reporting, the product would be an A plus.""Their automation needs improvement.""The initial setup needs improvement, as it was a bit challenging.""They are still working on the company integration from TippingPoint because this was a recent acquisition from a few years ago. So, a Tipping Point integration with Deep Security, having one single pane of glass dashboard, would provide us a simple use case.""Trend Micro is not government certified or federal complaint. If they could become compliant/certified, this would make it easier for us to use it for our government projects.""It needs to improve its integration with a lot of other products. This should be in the road map because we have a lot of SaaS-based appliances which are not connected with each other."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Licensing is simply by the number of hosts that you are looking to protect within your environment. It makes it much easier to ensure that you are covering your environment.""There is flexibility in the different licensing models that are offered.""The pricing is pretty high, not just for your capital, for what you have to pay upfront, but for what you pay for your annual software renewals as well, compared to a lot of other vendors. Check Point is near the top, as far as how much it's going to cost you."

"On an AWS defined scope, it will cheaper than buying the on-premise service. We did a trial for the on-premise version, but we decided to go with the AWS version. We are downsizing our server room, and it didn't make sense to put more machines in there.""Purchasing on the AWS Marketplace was easy. We decided to purchase this solution on the AWS Marketplace since we were already there.""The pricing is fair.""Our company chose to procure this product via AWS Marketplace due to regulatory requirements. We mostly use it in the AWS GovCloud.""Purchasing on the AWS Marketplace is like shopping on Amazon Prime.""We do pay-as-you-go pricing, which is good for us. We are working with Trend Micro's sales rep to see if we can have something similar for on-premise.""We have saved a 50% ROI for the on-premise product. It gave us significant improvement overall in productivity, costs, and efficiency.""We did not purchase it through the AWS Marketplace because we have used Trend Micro in the past."
