"Its most valuable features are its scalability and advanced threat protection for customers."
"I am told that we get over 100 million emails a month. This filters them down and allows only somewhere about three million emails, which is a great help."
"For the initial first level of support, we provide it from our side. If there's escalation required, we use Cisco tech for the AMP. And again, they are perfect. I mean, one of the best, compared to any other vendors."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the IPS and the integration with ISE."
"The simplicity of use is its most valuable feature. You can very clearly see things."
"The stability of the solution is perfect. I believe it's the most stable solution on the market right now."
"I am really satisfied with the technical support."
"It is a very stable program."
"It provides remote access for the staff and increases their productivity."
"The end-user facilities for managing the tool are good."
"The SandBlast agent is the most valuable feature for Check Point Endpoint Security. We've found that the Check Point SandBlast agent is mature."
"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."
"We had a ransomware attack and the SandBlast agent automatically picked up the ransomware."
"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."
"The most valuable feature of this solution is the VPN."
"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."
"When it works, it's great. It keeps things off the network which are supposed to be off the network."
"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."
"The initial setup was easy and straightforward."
"The interface is good and simple to use."
"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."
"Compliance checks are a good feature. Compliance check is for windows updates and for antivirus updates, etc."
"Provides containment and security and and carries out file analysis for cyber theft."
"This solution is very easy to implement and use. The interface is user-friendly."
"We would like to have an API integration with a SIEM solution, because as far as I know, it currently hasn't yet been released."
"I would like them to add whatever makes filtering more advanced in scanning and blocking for malware in emails."
"The solution needs more in-depth analytics."
"In the next version of this solution, I would like to see the addition of local authentication."
"The initial setup is a bit complex because you need to execute existing antiviruses or security software that you have on your device."
"In the next release, I would for it to have back up abilities. I would like the ability to go back to a point in time to when my PC was uninfected and to the moment of when the infection happened."
"The reporting and analytics areas of the solution need to be improved."
"I would like more seamless integration."
"A couple of times, we experienced some sales issues."
"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."
"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."
"They should provide bandwidth regulation, so we can monitor and regulate bandwidth."
"One area of this product that has room for improvement is the disc encryption."
"The solution could improve VPN functionality and the VPN user-interface."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"I think the network devices need to give more information."
"The dashboard needs to improve."
"The course content could be improved, it's not that simple to work through."
"For our organization and our clients, the price is the main concern. They should work to make it more competitive."
"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."
"Admin UI could be better matched and easier to use; it cannot work as a RADIUS server."
"The reporting capability needs to be improved."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"The costs of 50 licenses of AMP for three years is around $9,360."
"The price is very good."
"The visibility that we have into the endpoint and the forensics that we're able to collect give us value for the price. This is not an overly expensive solution, considering all the things that are provided. You get great performance and value for the cost."
"Whenever you are doing the licensing process, I would highly advise to look at what other Cisco solutions you have in your organization, then evaluate if an Enterprise Agreement is the best way to go. In our case, it was the best way to go. Since we had so many other Cisco products, we were able to tie those in. We were actually able to get several Cisco security solutions for less than if we had bought three or four Cisco security solutions independently or ad hoc."
"In our case, it is a straightforward annual payment through our Enterprise Agreement."
"Our company was very happy with the price of Cisco AMP. It was about a third of what we were paying for System Center Endpoint Protection."
"There are a couple of different consumption models: Pay up front, or if you have an enterprise agreement, you can do a monthly thing. Check your licensing possibilities and see what's best for your organization."
"The Enterprise Agreement is like an all-you-can-eat buffet of Cisco products. In that vein, it was very affordable."
"In addition to the standard licensing fees, there is a cost for support."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"The licensing cost for Check Point is $3 USD or $4 USD per end-user."
"It's a subscription-based license, which is based on the usage and number of concurrent users."
"The licensing fees are a little bit high."
"The pricing is similar to that of other solutions."

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.
