Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"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."

"The dynamic workload identity creation, attestation, and assignment is the best feature. In addition, the application dependency map across heterogeneous environments for compliance is a striking feature.""It has helped us understand the dynamic topology of our containers, and manage security through the application of policies that our pipelines apply straight from Git.""The most valuable feature is that the rule set is managed and that it can be run on a regularly scheduled basis.""The runtime mechanism on the solution is very useful. It's got very good network mapping between containers. If you have more than one container, you can create a content data link between them.""The product is quite good for providing multi-clouds or cross-cloud security from a single-pane -of-glass.""I would say Twistlock is a fairly sophisticated tool.""One of the most valuable features is the compliance of RedLock, which we are using for any issues with security. It flags them and that's the primary objective of that feature.""I was looking for a vulnerability scanner and I was looking for one place in which I could find everything. This tool not only does vulnerability scanning, but it also gives me an asset management tool."

Cons
"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."

"More documentation with real-world use cases would be helpful.""I would like to see the inclusion of automated counter-attack, although this is probably illegal.""The pricing for the solution needs improvement.""The innovation side of the solution could be more efficient and more detailed.""Palo Alto should work on ease-of-use and the user-friendliness to be more competitive with some competing products.""In terms of improvement, there are some small things like hardening and making sure the Linux resources are deployed well but that's more at an operational level.""The feedback that we have given to the Palo Alto team is that the UI can be improved. When you press the "back" button on your browser from the Investigate tab, the query that you're working on just disappears. It won't keep the query on the "back" button.""We would like it to have more features from the risk and compliance perspectives."

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."

"The purchasing process was easy and quick. It is a very economical solution.""Our licensing fees are $18,000 USD per year."
