Researched Check Point CloudGuard SaaS but chose Guardicore Centra: Get great visibility into vulnerabilities through micro-segmentation
Find out what your peers are saying about Check Point CloudGuard SaaS vs. Guardicore Centra and other solutions. Updated: September 2020.
442,194 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The automated rule cleanups and automated policy installs have improved my customers' organizations."
"The API is its most valuable feature. On the API side, relative to the rest of the market, Check Point is decades ahead of its competitors."
"The main benefit is that hackers can't steal information."
"Check Point adds value with east-west protection in the data center."
"It seems quite scalable. We don't anticipate any scaling issues. We have it deployed in the cloud."
"The most valuable features would be its ability to intercept phishing emails and emails laden with malware, viruses, false links, etc."
"The program has a nice interface and it is easy to use."
"The feature I find to be most valuable is very much the zero-touch provisioning. I was able to be up, operational, and 100 percent functional in less than a half an hour."
"That is primarily because I've seen increased rules. It's kind of caught us a little off guard. With GuardiCore, I have had to deal with their technical support and engineering team in Israel. They are amazing. They are very quick to adapt."
"The solution is very scalable, especially when connected to the cloud resources."
"Its deception features are great, providing a rich telemetry of lured origins, and are a great resource for any active defense strategy."
"This tool greatly helps in understanding the footprint of the attacks."
"The interface and dashboard are amazing."
"I have learned enough to make the product stable. However, the stability has some challenges."
"I would love it if they would do some work on the Postgres definition on the back-end."
"We have used technical support, but their response time is very slow. It needs to be improved."
"There is always room for improvement and growth."
"Stability has been a pain point. I was going back and forth with my product engineer and project manager for a couple of months. I had the product in a demonstration mode and wasn't satisfied with the results initially. After a few alterations and a few revisions later, it is fine."
"At this time, the two-factor authentication does not work for Active Directory."
"if a phishing email were to get through and bypass the product — which very few do — it would be nice if, when a user clicked on that phishing email, they got a second-chance opportunity, a chance to double-check that they really wanted to proceed to that website."
"We still get some false positives. There are times when legitimate stuff gets flagged and it could be that somebody is expecting a very important email but they don't end up getting it. On the flip side, when we alert Check Point about stuff like this, it is corrected, so they are improving. That's a plus."
"Clients would like to see that the security policies of GuardiCore can continue to be comparable to all the major firewall players out there."
"The dashboard needs improvement. It should be more flexible so that I can easily see what I want or need to see."
"Needs more customization of honeypots and a vaster catalog of systems able to be mimicked."
"The product needs a few features like enhanced user policies and payload-level inspection to improve the offering."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"Having information stolen by a hacker would be more expensive than purchasing a license."
"Being able to keep the phishing campaigns out of my company has been ROI for me."
"Do a full feature evaluation (interactive) with a support person. That is what I did."
"The price is very good, based on what they deliver."
"One of the nice features is that the licensing model is elastic, so if you go over your license count, you can add users during your billing cycle and true-up later."
"There are absolutely no additional costs to the standard licensing fees. One of the wonderful pieces is that CloudGuard SaaS is all-inclusive in its licensing. There's no a-la-carte functionality. You're getting 100 percent of the product for the licensing that you're paying."
"The difference between [Check Point and its competitors] boiled down to money. Price-wise, Check Point was very good, it was very competitive."
"GuardiCore has made some new changes to the license now. We've seen monthly and annual licenses based on a subscription. We have a few clients that pay anywhere from $25,000 a year."
