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

Pros
"Check Point SandBlast Network Solution provides signature-based as well as zero-day threat protection. Also sandboxing can be performed on an on-premise device, cloud as well as the combination of both. Threat emulation is done on multiple OS & verdict is provided.""Threat Emulation gives networks the necessary protection against unknown threats in files that are attached to emails. The Threat Emulation engine picks up malware at the exploit phase before it enters the network. It quickly quarantines and runs the files in a virtual sandbox, which imitates a standard operating system, to discover malicious behavior before hackers can apply evasion techniques to bypass the sandbox.""When our workers are downloading software, SandBlast Cloud is useful to emulate the downloads that the workers are doing. Then, there are no threats coming into the company.""It provides a high rate of catching the zero-day advanced threats.""Threat extraction can help us to remove malicious content from documents by converting them to PDF."

"The product has helped improve our organization by being easy to use and integrate. This saves time, trouble and money.""If we are receiving spam emails, or other types of malicious email coming from a particular email ID, then we are able to block them using this solution.""The most valuable feature is MVX, which tests all of the files that have been received in an email.""The server appliance is good.""The most valuable feature is the network security module.""It is stable and quite protective. It has a lot of features to scan a lot of malicious things and vulnerabilities."

Cons
"Many Important controls are only available in CLI & very very complicated. All tecli command features should available on GUI so that it will become easy for normal users to monitor & control queue.""I think Check Point provides standard time which ideally most other vendors take to identify behaviors of a file by sending them into a sandbox environment for inspection.""I would like if it could emulate bigger files and somehow improve this usability. I don't know if this would be possible. However, if it was able to scan or emulate bigger files, then it would be safer for a company using it.""The Threat Emulation software blade significantly affects the performance of the NGFWs, we have a significant increase in the CPU and memory consumption.""In Check Point SandBlast, improvement has to be made with respect to the GUI."

"As far as future inclusions, it would be useful to display more threat intelligence, such as the actual area of the threat and the origin of the web crawling (Tor and Dark Web).""It would be a good idea if we could get an option to block based upon the content of an email, or the content of a file attachment.""It would be very helpful if there were better integration with other solutions from other vendors, such as Fortinet and Palo Alto.""Technical packaging could be improved.""It is very expensive, the price could be better.""I heard that FireEye recently was hacked, and a lot of things were revealed. We would like FireEye to be more secure as an organization. FireEye has to be more protective because it is one of the most critical devices that we are using in our environment. They have a concept called SSL decryption, but that is only the packet address. We would like FireEye to also do a lot of decryption inside the packet. Currently, FireEye only does encryption and decryption of the header, but we would like them to do encryption and decryption of the entire packet."
