What is most valuable?The most valuable feature of this solution is AMP (Advanced Malware Protection), as this is really needed to protect against cyber threats. The IPS is a must for a firewall.
What needs improvement?The firewall throughput is limited to something like 1.2 Gbps, but sometimes we require more. Cisco makes another product, Firepower Threat Defence (FTD), which is a dedicated appliance that can… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?We are in the process of renewing our three-year license, which costs approximately $24,000 USD for the thirty-six months. In terms of licensing, this product costs a lot, but this cost can save my… more»
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We were using the SonicWall solution prior to this one, but it reached end-of-life because we had updated our architecture. This is why we migrated to a next-generation firewall. We had also been… more»
What other advice do I have?My advice to anybody who is considering this solution is not to think twice about it. There are a lot of features that come with the cost. These institutions secure our network and they have to do… more»
Which other solutions did I evaluate?We did have knowledge of other products, but we chose this solution because it facilitates the sharing of information with their knowledge base. It helps you learn from scratch.

What is most valuable?The feature I find most valuable is the Cisco VPN Interconnection. The file features are useful as well. They're good at packet tracing. They are very straightforward. I would say that the Cisco ASA ASDM makes it very easy to manage the… more»
What needs improvement?I would say the pricing could be improved. It's quite expensive, especially for the economy. I'd like to see them more integration so that I don't need other parties for protecting my network. If I could just have ASA firewalls for… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?This solution might be expensive, but it is economical in the long run.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?I previously used SonicWall. I'm not the one who decided to switch, I just know that previously we used SonicWall.
What other advice do I have?The functionality is fine. When they prove to me they cannot be hacked then I can give them a ten. I would rate this solution as eight out of ten.
Review of Check Point
Jul 14 2019
What is most valuable?It gives me very detailed reports. The endpoint solution for clients is wonderful.
What needs improvement?We're looking at the endpoint because there are some smaller issues with internet connectivity within our country. Although they have it now, we don't have a license for it, and I think mobile device security should be a standard feature. I… more»
What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?We pay a license fee on a three year basis. We have a three-year license. We pay $5,000-$6,000 a year.
Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?We were using the Sonicwall NSG 3400. It's a good appliance, but the major problem is they don't have competent technical partners in Nigeria. So all our support was via email, phone, and remote. It wasn't very good which is why we had to… more»
What other advice do I have?I would advise anyone to try Check Point. I would rate this solution 7.5 out of 10. I think they should make their licensing simpler.
