Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"Check Point has enabled us to detect a lot of threats and prevented a lot of threats from entering our environments. It has kept us safe.""SandBlast has opened us up to a lot more opportunities where we can offer this service to clients, that way they don't have to go to a third-party to get this specific solution. It comes in the Check Point Infinity Package so it has helped us a lot.""It seems like it works all the time. We have never had an issue. We have never had something go undetected, anything major. All in all, it works pretty well.""In terms of the scalability, it's expandable across the cloud.""It has caught some harmful attachments and downloads.""We didn't really have any IPS before. So, Check Point has improved our security posture. People get used to doing things certain ways, which might not be the best or most secure way, and they can't do that now, which just requires more education of the user base. With the endpoint client, we've started to use Check Point for remote access.""The zero-day protection is its most valuable feature.""It saves time with us trying to do the analysis. We use it to try to find out how something got into the network. We use it to stop something before it ever gets in."

"One of the valuable features is its ability to detect new threats.""The most valuable feature was the EDR, endpoint detection and response.""The most valuable feature is the protection and the way it works, the technology is what I like the most.""The solution is very good because it catches a lot of threats in emails.""he solution's GUI is good.""The technical support is very good.""What I find most valuable, is that it is easy to use.""The analysis engine is a very valuable feature."

Cons
"I am very leery right now about the stability. We've had three outages in the last month because of Check Point, not because of something that the customer has done, but because of changes on the Check Point side.""The technical support could use some work, but it's okay. It's a little bit of a tedious process to get through.""I would like to see some speed improvements, e.g., how quickly you can get through all the menus. It crashes sometimes because we push so much through it. Therefore, I would like to see more small things behind the scenes, such as, back-end stability in terms of the management application.""The initial setup was complex because of the lack of information from the consultant.""Most of the time stability is okay, but sometimes, we're not able to contact the cloud. It won't last for long. The product could be faster.""There have been a couple of things that we've tried where we read through the documentation, and we were really looking for some help in implementing, and technical support wanted me to try it first, then call them if it breaks. It would be nicer if they would hold my hand a bit more. It makes me nervous in production, as I don't have a lab.""I would like for them to improve the visibility in the product.""I imagine there will be improvements in later versions. There are hotfixes that come out all the time."

More Check Point SandBlast Network Cons »

"The product is good but it could be speedier. In addition, it's quite complex.""In the next release, I would like to see machine learning and anti-exploitation included.""The licensing can be very confusing. It needs to be simplified.""The response time from technical support should be improved.""At least once a week we have a false alarm. This needs to be adjusted so that we get fewer of these occurrences.""Most people are confused about how to use the right integration of the right Fortinet product.""Something that needs to improve, is the end-point protection.""Product could include a user interface and be made simpler for customers to configure."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have seen ROI.""We would like to try the Threat Extraction blade, but you need to buy a license. Check Point is expensive. I would like to buy things, but I would need the funding.""Choosing the correct set of licenses is essential because, without the additional software blade licenses, the Check Point gateways are just a stateful firewall."

More Check Point SandBlast Network Pricing and Cost Advice »

"There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""There are additional costs, which isn't included in the licensing fee.""The solution is not expensive at all."

A sandbox augments your security architecture by validating threats in a separate, secure environment. FortiSandbox offers a powerful combination of advanced detection, automated mitigation, actionable insight, and flexible deployment to stop targeted attacks and subsequent data loss. It's also a key component of our Advanced Threat Protection solution.
