Please share with the community what you think needs improvement with Check Point Endpoint Security.
What are its weaknesses? What would you like to see changed in a future version?
The antivirus is not as friendly as other solutions and can be improved. We would like to have the ability to stop and restart the service remotely, which is something that we can do easily with Symantec but have a hard time with when using Check Point.
It isn't exactly the cheapest, but then it's Check Point. The price could be improved. I'd also love to see them add full MDM support, but I appreciate that that's not the product market. If it did come in, I'd be more than happy to look at additional modules. It was probably one of the easiest products I've ever had to deploy it, but if it's not capable of doing MD, then that's going to impact its usefulness to us.
I would like to see support for a policy in the appliance that will refuse to create a connection if it does not detect an active virus scanner. Two-factor authentication is missing from this solution.
The solution could improve VPN functionality and the VPN user-interface.
One area of this product that has room for improvement is the disc encryption. I'd like to see a patch management solution like Kaspersky has. That's the only feature that's missing.
They should provide bandwidth regulation so we can monitor and regulate bandwidth.
The entire industry may move to the cloud, where we don't have to worry.
I'm not sure what they are thinking about in terms of additional features at the moment, but I hope that they'll maintain focus on the tool to enhance the solution. Areas that have room for improvement are the scope of the product and, while I think the support is good, they can improve support as well.
The remote deployment with Check Point Endpoint Security requires improvement. We have to depend on some of their deployment tools. I would like a dependable system endpoint protection management tool or remote deployment tool. The deployment on the remote client needs some type of tool to implement it.
