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.

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.

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.
