If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Check Point DDoS Protector, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
My advice for anybody who is considering this product is to evaluate based on the following points: * Where you want to place or installed your DDOS appliance. * What throughput mitigation is required. * Whether the device supports cloud signaling. * Determine whether the SSL decryption card is available with the box or needs to be purchased in addition. * License and port requirements in terms of whether you need copper or fiber.
Their support is very good. We don't have a lot of down time. Professional services are very knowledgable when it comes to the hardware. The management and using of your console is very easy also. Palo Alto is more difficult to use. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten because it's good but it's not perfect.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
