The licensing is very good. We always rely on an authorized dealer to ensure proper operation and sizing.
The blade has its cost but you can take advantage of the license package to pay less for it.
I think application control has become a basic feature and it should be enabled automatically, without having to purchase a separate license for it. Alternatively, it should be available at a minimal cost.
Pricing is in line with the competition. Licensing is not complicated. The license application is straightforward and it functions well. There are no additional costs that I'm aware of.
Choosing the correct set of the licenses is essential - without the additional software blade licenses purchased the Check Point gateways are just stateful firewall.
It's a bit expensive and it could be cheaper, but it's part of business politics.
