Quotes From Members

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

"Access is browser-based only and requires no additional client installation.""The solution is easy to install, centrally managed, and stable, with good technical support and a straightforward setup.""Technical support has been excellent.""For a basic setup, implementation is quite easy.""Our number of users working remotely vastly increased during the COVID 19 pandemic. Check Point Remote Access VPN allowed us to quickly make the transition from in-office to remote work.""I found the MEP feature the most valuable. This has improved users' latency allowing the users to connect to the nearest Azure Check Point VM.""The solution has been solid for me for over five years.""One of the features that I like most about this software is that it has a very intuitive, simple, and versatile interface that makes it easy to use and configure."

"The solution is perfect for Linux users."

More OpenText Exceed TurboX (ETX) Pros »

"This is the best version we are using, however, if some changes can be made in the next release, I'd like to see adjustments to the time period and internet connectivity.""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.""Some configurations, like idle timeout (the requirement came from multiple users), are not possible to configure directly from the Check Point management server.""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.""They need to increase their timeout. Right now, it will fail after ten seconds, however, it shouldn't fail until after 20. If you don't get on your phone right away and check on your authentications, it will kick you out.""We would like to implement HTML5 (clientless access) in the product without installing any additional software.""The Compliance software blade is available only for the Windows operating systems family, so no macOS security checks are implemented and performed.""When you need to create something, you have to follow many steps and I think that should be simplified."

"The performance of the graphical interface needs improvement. They should add some CPU to speed graphic acceleration."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Organizations that already have the Check Point NGFW need to purchase an additional license to have access to the VPN functionality.""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.""The price of this product is good."
