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

Pros
Administratively, it's easy to control.The security is its most valuable feature.Its ease of use is the most valuable feature. We had existing endpoints and it was an easy upgrade process. The interface board is also easy to use.The forensics reports and the ability to sandbox malware are its most valuable features.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.The zero-day protection is its most valuable feature.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.

Cons
Off the top of my head, I can't think of a way it has improved my organization.There was a learning curve for our general population of employees (the user).Using it in the beginning was difficult because I had never used anything similar. In terms of navigating the UI, it was all not too bad, but there is definitely a learning curve.I imagine there will be improvements in later versions. There are hotfixes that come out all the time.I would like for them to improve the visibility in the product.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.It needs to include built-in deployment. This will make the job easier rather than having to go and dig up an Active Directory deployment along with policy objects.

The product is good but it could be speedier. In addition, it's quite complex.For additional features, maybe a form of execution pain files in a non-virtual environment because it has threats that identify when it is being run in a virtual machine.

Pricing and Cost Advice
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.We didn't actually purchase the software. It was given to us by Check Point. We are using it as a test bed for possible future customers.We have seen ROI.Pricing is a little high.

Overview

Hackers constantly modify their strategies and techniques to evade detection and reach corporate resources. Zero-day protection from Check Point provides a deeper level of inspection so you can prevent more malware and zero-day attacks, while ensuring quick delivery of safe content to your users.

Today’s threats are increasingly sophisticated and often bypass traditional malware security by masking their malicious activity. 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.
