We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The usability is the most valuable feature. It's really easy to use. It's a durable solution. I don't have any breaches. It is a good solution from that angle."
"The anti-phishing and scanning of SMS are the most valuable aspects of the solution. Sometimes we will get some SMS and they will try to redirect you to malicious links. If you have SandBlast Mobile, it helps you prevent clicking on those malicious links."
"The most valuable features of this solution are the filtering, interface configuration, and threat management."
"I really like the application scanning portion where it scans your current applications and any new applications that you add to the device to let you know if it is malicious."
"It monitors all the URLs that a user goes to on their phone and so we can see what they're looking at and we can limit that. Certain topics are not allowed to be accessed. They're monitoring their apps and they rate them based upon how big of a security risk that individual app is based on their ratings. And so we're able to limit those as well and allow people to have some that may be a low risk, but still a risk, but we may allow that for our users whereas we block medium and high risk."
"First, the granular visibility of apps & traffic which we get through Check Point SandBlast Mobile are good. We can see each & every installed app & information for each app about severity & risk."
"The most impressive thing is the SSL VPN Portal."
"The solution has clients for both Android and Apple devices, so all of our employees' devices are protected."
"The most valuable feature is the zero-trust part of this solution."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to join your network and provide access through the VPN."
"It's great that we can make sure a machine meets the minimum requirements before users are allowed to log in."
"The users can securely access any cloud data centers or cloud platforms. In terms of the features, it has all the features that Palo Alto Next-Generation Firewall has. It is also very stable and scalable."
"The scalability of the solution is excellent."
"There are plenty of features this solution provides and the most valuable would be the complete security protection we are receiving. We are provided with similar security that the Palo Alto AWS solution has. This includes features such as a firewall and machine learning AI."
"It's much faster and more secure than legacy solutions. It is also quite stable and scalable as well. We are able to see all the traffic in one place."
"The interface could be more user-friendly. They should improve the look and feel."
"For SandBlast Mobile, the only thing that is lacking is that it wasn't available for all types of users. However, Check Point has since fixed this, with ZoneAlarm."
"In terms of what needs improvement, the web interface should be simplified. It should be more user-friendly. It's too technical."
"In the next release, I would like to see a Wi-Fi scanner to be able to identify whether a wireless network is malicious before you join it."
"Integration needs improvement. We use Check Point for email. We use Check Point Capsule Workspace and I wish that it tied into that better and was integrated with their email application so that when it's secure, then they're able to access their email and it could be deployed as one group instead of two separate applications. It's a little bit more work for us to deploy both of those so it'd be nice if they could be integrated."
"Also, we found configuring device groups & mapping a policy is quite confusing. There should be a simpler interface."
"I think that the pricing for the Check Point products should be reconsidered, as we found it to be quite expensive to purchase and to maintain."
"The feature set between the Android and Apple devices is not fully equal."
"The cloud setup is straightforward, and the onboarding process is much better, but the on-premises initial setup is slightly complex."
"Better integration with the MDM solution would be useful."
"The solution needs to be more compatible with other solutions. This is specifically a problem for us when it comes to healthcare applications. They have proprietary connection types and things of that nature that make compatibility a challenge sometimes."
"When it comes to the VPN, it uses the global protect VPN functionality to connect remotely, but it has a feature limitation for assigning multiple IP sub-links to different user groups. It would be much better if we are able to assign the current IP blocks for the sub-links based on the user groups."
"There is some particular traffic that the security team wants to filter out and apply their own policies and they cannot."
"There can be some latency issues with the solution that should be improved."
"It would be nice to manage Prisma Access through the cloud instead of through Panorama. You can use the cloud version to monitor Prisma Access, but it doesn't have all the features yet, and it's not 100% done."
"Check Point pricing is better than Symantec."
"Choosing the correct set of licenses is essential because, without the additional software blade licenses, the Check Point gateways are just a stateful firewall."
"The cost is huge compared to other products, and it seems this solution is only for companies with a large budget."
"This is a very expensive product."
"The quality, price, and support ratio are very good."
"Regarding the cost of licenses, each device consumes one, even if it has both professional and personal profiles."
"Check Point provides a separate license in cases where organizations want to use this only on mobile devices, or laptops/desktops."
"This is not an expensive product and everything is included with one license."
"Prisma Access is a little bit expensive."
"The solution requires a license and the technical support has extra costs. The licensing model could improve."
"The price has been good for the ROI during these difficult times for the cruise industry. There are no hidden costs; what the product offers is what you get."
