Find out what your peers are saying about Check Point Endpoint Remote Access VPN vs. Citrix Gateway and other solutions. Updated: November 2020.
447,546 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"We haven't received any complaints or performance issues so far."
"Most of our customers are using the load balancing feature and also the verification feature is good as well, in my experience."
"The initial setup is simple. Normally with all setups, it's not very complicated. It really depends on the customer."
"The solution is very stable. If I were to rate it out of ten, I would give stability a nine."
"The stability of the solution is perfect."
"The features that we have found most valuable are the web app support and VPN."
"It's a stable solution while it's running. We don't have to work on it a lot. There are not many bugs, so it's easy to use if you deploy successfully. You can be sure of an uninterrupted solution for quite a long time. Citrix is a good product."
"What I find most valuable about this solution, is that it runs seamlessly."
"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."
"The load balancing could be improved."
"If the solution had a more advanced DNS, it would be an improvement."
"I'd like to see support for reverse proxy and more security features."
"The initial setup is very complex."
"The solution can be a bit pricey."
"The dashboard or interface should be more clear in reporting issues. Integration with other applications should be more user-friendly."
"The major issue is price. I would also like them to make other aspects more accessible."
"I would like to see better configuration of repairs and downloading certification."
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."
"Usually with Citrix the issue is the pricing, especially for the African region. We believe it's really expensive."
"Pricing is very high if you do a comparison with what is available in the market."
"I believe the pricing is comparable to SaaS"
