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 don't need to connect anymore. It is automatically connected when you log on in Windows."
"The ZPA is a unique feature which offers VPN along with all the additional security needed."
"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."
"SCMP support would be one of the biggest improvements in my opinion. More speed improvements are also required."
"It's an expensive solution."
"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."
The Check Point Remote Access VPN Software Blade provides users with secure, seamless access to corporate networks and resources when traveling or working remotely.
