Find out what your peers are saying about Check Point Endpoint Security vs. FortiNAC and other solutions. Updated: January 2020.
398,567 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:
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.
The most valuable features of the solution are the user-friendliness, the graphical interface, and the technical support. The interface is very nice and the customization is good.
The interface is good and simple to use.
The initial setup was easy and straightforward.
Compliance checks are a good feature. Compliance check is for windows updates and for antivirus updates, etc.
The solution is good at giving a deep dive into each product. It tells you, for example, what is connected to the network. It gives us good reporting tools.
When it works, it's great. It keeps things off the network which are supposed to be off the network.
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.
For our organization and our clients, the price is the main concern. They should work to make it more competitive.
The course content could be improved, it's not that simple to work through.
The dashboard needs to improve.
The implementation process needs improvement. Right now, it's somewhat complicated. They could create some templates to facilitate implementation. Right now everything is done manually, and it just takes a really long time at the initial setup.
I think the network devices need to give more information.
The technical support is bad. We've had to escalate to Tier 2 and Tier 3. My customer relationship manager on the other side of this has stopped returning phone calls and emails, because there has been such a constant back and forth.
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.
It's a subscription-based license, which is based on the usage and number of concurrent users.

The proliferation of Internet of Things (IoT) devices, has made it necessary for organizations to improve their visibility into what is attached to their networks. They need to know every device and every user accessing their networks. IoT devices enable digital transformation initiatives and improve efficiency, flexibility, and optimization. However, they are inherently untrustworthy, with designs that prioritize low-cost over security. FortiNAC provides the network visibility to see everything connected to the network, as well as the ability to control those devices and users, including dynamic, automated responses.
