Pros
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.Check Point adds value with east-west protection in the data center.The stability is very good. It is easy to use, which makes it easy for the end user.The main benefit is that hackers can't steal information.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.It is the collaboration between users inside the company. It is a big advantage with Check Point to be able to work together on the same document.

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 would say Twistlock is a fairly sophisticated tool.The product is quite good for providing multi-clouds or cross-cloud security from a single-pane -of-glass.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 most valuable feature is that the rule set is managed and that it can be run on a regularly scheduled basis.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 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.

Cons
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.There is always room for improvement and growth.I would like for them to develop the ability to add additional users within a pod, where it is round robin.We have used technical support, but their response time is very slow. It needs to be improved.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.There is too much functionality, which makes it difficult to use. More guidance for users would be helpful.

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.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.Palo Alto should work on ease-of-use and the user-friendliness to be more competitive with some competing products.The innovation side of the solution could be more efficient and more detailed.The pricing for the solution needs improvement.I would like to see the inclusion of automated counter-attack, although this is probably illegal.More documentation with real-world use cases would be helpful.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.Having information stolen by a hacker would be more expensive than purchasing a license.

Learn more about Check Point Cloud Security.

The ability to quickly build and deploy global-scale applications has lead to the rapid adoption of public cloud infrastructure. Managing security at this scale hasn't kept up. Compounded by the accelerated development pace where DevOps teams sometimes push new releases into production daily, it’s no surprise security teams find themselves overwhelmed with lack of visibility, context and control despite the robust toolkits and capabilities offered by cloud service providers. Prisma Public Cloud redefines effective security and compliance management for today’s multi-cloud era.
