Pros
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.

Cons
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.
