Rich vulnerability management that is controlled from a single pane of glass, but the network modeling capability...
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."
"Change Manager is most important because of the impact on each other of a network change or a firewall change. We want to understand this and to know, beforehand, what the impact of a change will be. We are a large network so that is a very important tool."
"The solution's simplicity of use is its most valuable feature."
"The port division management was the solution's most valuable aspect for our organization."
"The most valuable features are Firewall Assurance and Vulnerability Control."
"The most valuable feature is firewall management."
"The feature that I have found the most valuable is that it gathers all the information from firewalls and then generates a report for me. I can then do some analytics and mediation based on what Skybox Security Suite provided."
"The solution offers very nice dashboards and they've recently added a very good Java-based web interface."
"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 solution needs to add more automation and orchestration capabilities. Those features would make the solution much stronger."
"The solution was quite technical. It would be easier to manage if the solution was more specific about aspects of the solution and provided more advisory around how to use it effectively. It would help users a lot if they were more clear about everything."
"The most recent update was not tested with all of the vendors before it was released, so some of the features are misbehaving."
"The Network Assurance, which helps to create the network model, is not so rich."
"They can improve the user interface. They can also improve the web version. They have a so-called Java client in their roadmap, but I'm not sure when it will come."
"The support could be improved."
Pricing and Cost Advice
"Choosing the correct set of licenses is essential because, without the additional software blade licenses, the Check Point gateways are just a stateful firewall."
"Pricing is on the higher side. In terms of licensing, you should buy the complete suite rather than buying only the Change Manager. I think Change Manager with Vulnerability Control is something that would be interesting to look at."
"The price is not expensive."
"Currently, the licensing costs me about $300 USD for the year. This is a huge amount for my environment."
