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."

"It is easy to use.""It offers more platform support, like Apple, Android, and Microsoft.""The VPN we are using is good and working quite well.""Other than it provides us with remote access, so it's fairly easy to install, fairly easy to set up, and provides us the ability to get into our corporate environment."

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."

"In the next release, I would like the ability to work offline with remote access.""Every time that I have a new phone or computer, it takes a little longer to deploy it.""If they had dashboards or a report for managers or executives, then it would allow them to see the status and have it make sense to them.""It gets out of sync with Active Directory or whatever it might be, whatever the authentication piece is on Active Directory, and they just reset it on the backend. I never have to contact the vendor."
