Basil DangeSenior Manager at a financial services firm
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."
"It's fully scalable. There is no limit. Of course, the license limits per day the number of terabytes. In my opinion, it's very flexible."
"The most valuable features are the packet decoder, log decoder, and concentrator."
"The most valuable feature is that we can create our own connectors for any application, and NetWitness provides the training and tools to do it."
"The most valuable features are the integration and ease of use."
"Performance and reporting are very good."
"The most valuable features are the threat prediction and network forensics."
"The most valuable feature is the security that it provides."
"What we are mainly using are the RSA concentrator, RSA Decoder, Archiver, Broker, and Log Decoder."
"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."
"They should implement algorithms to digest that data and produce additional, more advanced reporting, alerting and support of internal security teams."
"Log aggregation is an issue with this solution because there are a huge number of alerts in a single instance."
"The initial setup is very complex and should be simplified."
"The documentation is not as structured as I would like, personally, and I think that it can be improved and made much more user-friendly."
"The user interface is a little bit difficult for new users and it needs to be improved."
"Lots of competing products have vulnerability protection built into their products, and this solution would be improved by including that support."
"It is not so easy to customize this product."
"Security needs improvement."
"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)."
"We have a perpetual license, so the total cost of ownership is not very expensive. It's a good investment."
"Many clients are not able to purchase the packet capability because there is a huge amount of data, and the cost depends on the number of EPS (Events per second), as well as the number of gigabytes of data per day."
"Our license is for one year."

If you’re relying on log data to detect and prevent cyber threats, you’re in trouble. Attackers increasingly evade detection of log-centric security and network monitoring tools. But logs combined with full packet, endpoint NetFlow data are proven to provide the essential details for early threat detection. Here’s a closer look at our solution.
