The most valuable feature is the monitoring. We can easily monitor what kind of stuff comes over to our network and we can then check the dashboard and work accordingly.
We consolidated from three management consoles and three clusters to only one, which is a big improvement.
Its blades and VSLS (Virtual System Load Sharing) work fine.
Monitoring using SmartConsole and all its features is extremely easy, and I find SmartEvent an excellent monitoring tool for spotting threats and user behaviour.
The multiple virtual firewalls on one box are extremely useful and the interconnection with virtual switches is simple and easy to understand.
The features that I find most valuable are the MIR (Mandiant Incident Response) for checks on our inbound security.
Improved our systems and our customers' by providing better malware protection, defense against zero-day threats, and improved network security.
The MVX Engine seems to be very capable against threats and the way it handles APTs is impressive.
The initial setup was a bit complex.
Having a web UI in the VSX (or something similar) would be nice.
We have Microsoft CASB cloud app security and it's one of the least compatible firewalls. They really need to look at this, as both Check Point and Microsoft are major players. Why aren't they compatible? If we had Palo Alto then we wouldn't have this problem.
The world is currently shifting to AI, but FIreEye is not following suit.
There is a lot of room for Improvement in the offering, from cost to functionality. It is pretty straightforward to implement which is an advantage. However, it falls short in pricing, detection capabilities, and, most importantly, reporting and policy management.
It would be great if we could create granular reports based on the protocols, types of attacks, regions of attack, etc. Also we would like to easily be able to add exceptions to rules in cases of false positives.
Stability issues manifested in terms of throughput maximization.
Management of the appliance could be greatly improved.
