We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Check Point adds value with east-west protection in the data center.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Key features are the Software Vulnerability Assessment and the CSM, which is the configuration check.
Policies are very easy to manage on a day-to-day basis.
There is always room for improvement and growth.
The product can still grow.
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.
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.
I would like to see more focus on east-west traffic inspection and AWS.
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.
Anything outside of the software vulnerability management and the CSM, things like the GhostPort, need some improvement. The dashboard is in beta. It looks really good, I wish it would come out of beta.
In the CSM module the policies are really hard to work with it. It is not very flexible at all. I would suggest that they change that. Right now, the scan is based on the group that the server is in. What happens if the server is in multiple groups?
Of all the advertised functions, I only find two things that really work in my environment, even though I wanted to use all of them. They're not flexible enough to be used.
The reports and graphs are unintuitive.
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.
CloudPassage is a little bit on the expensive side. So my suggestion is that the company lower its price point a wee bit or sell modules, separate them in modules, because I only find two things that are useful to me, yet I pay for four or five modules. It didn't seem like it was a fair deal.
We also evaluated VMware NSX, but the pricing and features available in a CloudPassage implementation were decisive in deciding to go with CP.
