Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Check Point CloudGuard SaaS.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
One of the areas that I would like to see them develop into the product would be in the user feedback arena. Today, if a phishing email were to get through and bypass the product — which very few do — it would be nice if, when a user clicked on that phishing email, they got a second-chance opportunity, a chance to double-check that they really wanted to proceed to that website.
At this time, the two-factor authentication does not work for Active Directory. This is something that we are looking forward to.
The QoS on the Elastic Cloud could use improvement.
I would like to see them do some work on the database back-end and how it is supported, in terms of performance, cleanup, and scalability. In particular, I would love it if they would do some work on the Postgres definition on the back-end.
There is always room for improvement and growth.
I have a keen interest in being able to consolidate and being able to have one viewpoint. I want to be able to integrate directly into our centralized login. I would love to see the ability to integrate into our SIEM solution which is on-premise. I see where in a later update, they have built ability to integrate with an on-premise logging solution, so this is a big plus.
I would like some features that manage projects in more flexible ways, like smart chips. It would be very interesting to share tasks in a very flexible way inside a team or to reorganize planning for a certain project in a very collaborative way. Either integrating or developing something in Check Point to enable flexible project management with smart chips would be easy to use and quite powerful. There is too much functionality, which makes it difficult to use. More guidance for users would be helpful.
