We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The solution is very stable. I would estimate it's 99.9% stable, if not more."
"We have full control over what our employees can do with the devices we provide them, to provide a secure and reliable network infrastructure."
"The Check Point Infinity security architecture enables organizations to fully implement all of the Zero Trust Principles."
"This solution has advanced a lot over the last few years."
"Technical support is something that needs improvement."
"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 licensing model for Check Point Infinity is not clear."
"When the data leaves the cloud, there are security issues."
"Choosing the correct set of licenses is essential because, without the additional software blade licenses, the Check Point gateways are just a stateful firewall."
"Check Point should provide an enterprise-wide license where the organization should be provided free hand of using any license or services for an agreed period of time (EULA)."
