Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The initial set up is not complex.""It is easy to install the Endpoint Remote Access VPN client to different platforms.""The biggest advantage of Check Point Remote Access VPN is that we already use the Check Point firewall. We only needed to enable the feature and do the configuration in order to enable the VPN feature. We didn't need to buy or manage new hardware. This was a big advantage."

"We haven't received any complaints or performance issues so far.""Most of our customers are using the load balancing feature and also the verification feature is good as well, in my experience.""The initial setup is simple. Normally with all setups, it's not very complicated. It really depends on the customer.""The solution is very stable. If I were to rate it out of ten, I would give stability a nine.""The stability of the solution is perfect.""The features that we have found most valuable are the web app support and VPN.""It's a stable solution while it's running. We don't have to work on it a lot. There are not many bugs, so it's easy to use if you deploy successfully. You can be sure of an uninterrupted solution for quite a long time. Citrix is a good product.""What I find most valuable about this solution, is that it runs seamlessly."

Cons
"They could add more features, like the security to block off the doors, or create another hatch, something like this. They could make the features safer, add malware to make my mail and the Kryon system safer and to protect data at an earlier stage.""The Compliance software blade is available only for the Windows operating systems family, so no macOS security checks are implemented and performed.""We are very happy with the Windows client. You log in with the VPN for the full client, you do the log in there. But for Linux machines, they don't have a full client to install. It is important because we have some users that use Linux and they don't have a specific application from Check Point to use. That is something that could be improved."

"The load balancing could be improved.""If the solution had a more advanced DNS, it would be an improvement.""I'd like to see support for reverse proxy and more security features.""The initial setup is very complex.""The solution can be a bit pricey.""The dashboard or interface should be more clear in reporting issues. Integration with other applications should be more user-friendly.""The major issue is price. I would also like them to make other aspects more accessible.""I would like to see better configuration of repairs and downloading certification."
