Check Point licenses work very differently compared to other vendors. We need to purchase each blade in order to make it work, but we can easily obtain a trial (evaluation) license from Check Point to get visibility for the blade. Check Point tries to maintain relationships with customers and they try to match their price with customer expectations.
The price is high but worth it.
I would advise others that it's definitely a great investment to have Security Management across your infrastructure.

This product can be used for 25 security gateways on a basic license. I think that this is good value for the money.
The pricing is in line with its competition, like Fortinet. Sometimes applying licensing in products gets a bit messy. We will apply for a license on the manager, specifically for the firewall, but you still see the firewall complaining it doesn't have any rights. In this case, we need vendor support to fix this kind of situation. We need to devise whether we need to have remote sessions with regard to why the firewall is complaining. There must be some kind of protection for the people not to flip licenses that they shouldn't. Sometimes when you buy a new firewall, the licensing is not straightforward to apply. After we fix it, we never have issues again.
The Check Point solutions in general are not cheap, so your company should have a dedicated budget for security.
Hi community members,
We know it's important to conduct a trial and/or proof of concept as part of the buying process.
Do you have any advice for our community about the best way to conduct a trial or PoC? How do you conduct a trial effectively?
Are there any mistakes to avoid?
