Good support, offers visibility of the process, and protects against previously unknown malicious files

What is our primary use case?

We have the Check Point SandBlast TE100X device private cloud sandbox. We use sandboxing to scan files in our network. The unknown file will reach the security gateway, the gateway will check for the verdict in the cache, and if not found, it holds the file while the security gateway sends it to SandBlast. We have enabled four images and depending upon the results of SandBlast, it will determine a verdict that will be given to the security gateway. At this point, the gateway will allow or deny the file and save the results in cache for future reference.

Pros and Cons

  • "Threat extraction can help us to remove malicious content from documents by converting them to PDF."
  • "In Check Point SandBlast, improvement has to be made with respect to the GUI."

Offers good security, integrates well, and they have good technical support

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and RSA NetWitness is one of the products that we implement for our clients. We also use it ourselves, They primarily use it for threat protection.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the security that it provides."
  • "It is not so easy to customize this product."

What other advice do I have?

They have just introduced an orchestration tool, although I don't know how it works yet. Overall, this is a good product and I recommend it. However, I always suggest doing a proof of concept first, to make sure that it meets your needs. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
