Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The ability to create your trigger data domains is the solution's most valuable feature.""The management of the solution is very simple. It allows for a single view of all the endpoints.""Our users find the interface very comfortable to use.""It allows everyone to work from home. If no one could work from home, then we wouldn't have a company, especially now during COVID-19. It's mission-critical, especially since it's currently being used. If there is a problem with it, we would really be screwed. We would be hard-pressed because we would have to figure out what solution we're going to go with, how to deploy it, how long it would take to deploy it, and how we'd even get it on people's computers if we couldn't VPN to them. It would be near impossible to just change to a new VPN solution right now.""The most valuable feature is the seamless access."

"The user interface is user-friendly.""The most valuable features are that it's reliable, convenient, and easy. It always works if configured well.""The feature I find most valuable, is the management portal.""The solution is very stable.""I like to work with the CMD command line because it's easy and it doesn't take very long to configure.""The solution is very easy to work with. This is its most valuable feature. They also did a good job surrounding how you configure the devices.""It's a very stable solution and I'd say it works perfectly.""The setup and installation was easy."

Cons
"The interface itself needs improvement. When you need to create something, you have to go through a lot of steps. It needs to be simplified.""I cannot see the full effect of the endpoint solution because it relies on having access to the DNF queries, which might not go through the Check Point firewall when you're using it for perimeter networks. Check Point will not identify the actual source of the net queries. This may be related to the architecture, however, and not poor product issues. I don't know if it can be improved on the Check Point side or not.""There is always room for innovation and the addition of new features.""When you want to deploy a new Check Point agent, it is really a pain in the butt. For example, Windows 10 now has updates almost every couple of months. It changes the versioning and things under the hood. These are things that I don't understand, because I'm not a Windows person. However, I know that the Check Point client is installed on the Windows machine, and if the Check Point client's not kept up-to-date, then it's functionality breaks. It has to be up-to-date with the Windows versions. Check Point has to update the client more often. Now, the problem is that the Check Point client is not easy to update on remote computers and it's not easy to deploy a new client.""We would like to see support for a layer seven VPN over UDP."

"In terms of what needs improvement, it should have better integration. Although, it might have already been taken care of.""I would like for it to have support for the Dutch language. I typically use English in 99% of our communications but for some people, it matters.""The graphical interface is old and needs to improve.""The pricing needs to be better.""It can be difficult to find service and at times we cannot connect with the internet easily.""Cisco device management is quite difficult. They should work to simplify this.""I think the administration can be improved to include web interfaces.""The servers should be more user-friendly."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"My understanding is that the pricing and licensing are very competitive, and it's not one of their more expensive products. We buy licenses for the solution and have licenses for the endpoint servers."

"I would say it is a bit expensive, but I think it is worth the price.""The pricing of the solution is reasonable""There are no pricing programs for non-profit organizations and the product is otherwise expensive by comparison."
