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

Pros
We were under an attack in our environment, and the Check Point response was good because we didn't lose anything.The biggest value we found was ease of deployment. I haven't really used it much, so I can't really comment beyond that. I haven't used it much, but it's working.The most valuable feature of this solution is the VPN.The most valuable feature is the integration with CheckPoint's firewalls. You can have one port, and follow the logs from both Endpoint and firewall security.We had a ransomware attack and the SandBlast agent automatically picked up the ransomware.Before we used this solution, our mail was blacklisted. Now we are white listed by all organizations, including Google. Also the security of our institution has really improved.The SandBlast agent is the most valuable feature for Check Point Endpoint Security. We've found that the Check Point SandBlast agent is mature.The end-user facilities for managing the tool are good.

This solution has made the lives of the IT staff much easier, compared to the previous one.We are now able to find the root cause analysis on any threat. We can figure out where the issue came in versus just dealing with where it is at the moment.We have seen a reduction to the performance hit to our operating systems.We are happy with CloudStrike's ease of use and touch notification.Because it is security product and acts like an AIML smart product, not merely based on daily/weekly updates and signatures.The automatic alert feature is the most important feature of the solution.The most valuable feature is its threat analysis.Scalability is good. We have had no issues with it.

Cons
We would like to have the ability to stop and restart the service remotely, which is something that we can do easily with Symantec but have a hard time with when using Check Point.I'd also love to see them add full MDM support, but I appreciate that that's not the product market. If it did come in, I'd be more than happy to look at additional modules. It was probably one of the easiest products I've ever had to deploy it, but if it's not capable of doing MD, then that's going to impact its usefulness to us.I would like to see support for a policy in the appliance that will refuse to create a connection if it does not detect an active virus scanner.The solution could improve VPN functionality and the VPN user-interface.One area of this product that has room for improvement is the disc encryption.They should provide bandwidth regulation, so we can monitor and regulate bandwidth.The remote deployment with Check Point Endpoint Security requires improvement. We have to depend on some of their deployment tools. I would like a system endpoint protection management tool or a remote deployment tool.Areas that have room for improvement are the scope of the product and, while I think the support is good, they can improve support as well.

I would like to see the machine learning feature enhanced.As the company has grown, the technical support has felt less personal.The GUI can use improvement, it's cloud-based so sometimes the interface can be a bit slow. The interface could use a little bit more speed.We have had to open a case with the technical support to get some issues and bugs resolved.Unfortunately, native applications are not supported.The management of log aggregation is in need of improvement.I would like CrowdStrike to provide some correlation in the threat analysis, so we can visualize things better.Whenever there is a feature release (upgrade) where we push to all the endpoints, it causes something to be blocked without us knowing.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The licensing cost for Check Point is $3 USD or $4 USD per end-user.I bought them for 12 months and I genuinely cannot remember what I paid for them. I think it's about 100 pounds per user per year, so about 10 pounds a month per person.We pay roughly 80,000 Swedish krona per year. When it comes to the firewall, it's roughly 150,000 Swedish krona yearly. There's also maintenance, of course, which is roughly 10,000 krona per month.We pay on an annual basis. There are no additional fees, they mostly tell us what we have to pay. We have budgeted for it.In addition to the standard licensing fees, there is a cost for support.

This solution has a very competitive price.We are at about $60,000 per year.The other administrator and I can log in to check the exact details of what happened, what was running, and what caused the detection. We know exactly what was happening on the end users PC and we can tell if it's something that we actually need or something that's malicious.I do not have experience with the cost or licensing of the product.I would like them to further reduce the price, because it is quite pricey at the moment.Purchasing the product through the AWS Marketplace is just a click away. Since we were using the on-premise version of the product, we continued on the cloud by purchasing it through the AWS Marketplace.The pricing will depend upon your volume of usage.
