Pricing and Cost Advice
I don't think the product's pricing is a good value. I feel it's very overpriced. I feel a lot of the features for a next gen firewall are there. But I feel it's overpriced, because of the stability issues. As far as support goes, I really can't speak to direct Check Point support, but the third-party was pretty terrible... As far as the licensing goes, it's pretty complex. If anybody was to purchase the Check Point product, definitely make sure they have an account rep come on site, and explain it line by line, what each thing is. It's not straightforward. It's very convoluted. There's no way you could just figure it out by looking at it.

ASA pricing seems high compared to other firewalls, such as the Sophos XG models.The licensing features are getting more complicated. These should be simplified.It was initially heavy on my pocket, but it soon actualised its worth.Sometimes this can get expensive but when you buy a car you want to buy the best car, so you pay for all the features.​It is worth every penny that we have invested in it.​We looking for a possible new solution because of the licensing and VPN.​Be sure of what features you are ​going to utilize to add/remove some from new bundles.It requires additional licensing to enable 10G ports.
