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

Pros
"The ability to create your trigger data domains is the solution's most valuable feature.""The management of the solution is very simple. It allows for a single view of all the endpoints.""The initial set up is not complex.""Our users find the interface very comfortable to use.""It allows everyone to work from home. If no one could work from home, then we wouldn't have a company, especially now during COVID-19. It's mission-critical, especially since it's currently being used. If there is a problem with it, we would really be screwed. We would be hard-pressed because we would have to figure out what solution we're going to go with, how to deploy it, how long it would take to deploy it, and how we'd even get it on people's computers if we couldn't VPN to them. It would be near impossible to just change to a new VPN solution right now.""It is easy to install the Endpoint Remote Access VPN client to different platforms.""The most valuable feature is the seamless access.""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."

"The remote management piece is the most valuable aspect of the solution for us due to the fact that we can support our clients after hours.""Due to the fact that we can help our clients virtually, the solution has allowed us to reduce our travel costs by about 90%.""You can bring up a command prompt remotely and execute commands without having to disturb the user."

Cons
"The interface itself needs improvement. When you need to create something, you have to go through a lot of steps. It needs to be simplified.""I cannot see the full effect of the endpoint solution because it relies on having access to the DNF queries, which might not go through the Check Point firewall when you're using it for perimeter networks. Check Point will not identify the actual source of the net queries. This may be related to the architecture, however, and not poor product issues. I don't know if it can be improved on the Check Point side or not.""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.""There is always room for innovation and the addition of new features.""When you want to deploy a new Check Point agent, it is really a pain in the butt. For example, Windows 10 now has updates almost every couple of months. It changes the versioning and things under the hood. These are things that I don't understand, because I'm not a Windows person. However, I know that the Check Point client is installed on the Windows machine, and if the Check Point client's not kept up-to-date, then it's functionality breaks. It has to be up-to-date with the Windows versions. Check Point has to update the client more often. Now, the problem is that the Check Point client is not easy to update on remote computers and it's not easy to deploy a new client.""The Compliance software blade is available only for the Windows operating systems family, so no macOS security checks are implemented and performed.""We would like to see support for a layer seven VPN over UDP.""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 solution is a little bit complicated when you want to implement it.""Something that I would like to see in the future is mobile video streaming. They do provide audio conferencing, but seeing the problem makes it easier to solve the problem. If they had video streaming, if a client had a physical problem with something and I couldn't get remote access, the client could use his mobile phone to show me the problem. In these cases, even if a client's systems were down, I could help, so long as I had a mobile phone environment.""I really didn't care for the onboarding process and it is something that should be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"My understanding is that the pricing and licensing are very competitive, and it's not one of their more expensive products. We buy licenses for the solution and have licenses for the endpoint servers."
