    Product(s): Next Generation Firewall

    Great products, great knowledge, and easy implementation.

    Overall Comment

    Purchase process, implementation, and on-going support has met or exceeded all expectations. Check Point professional services was very knowledgeable and gave important insights into deployment strategies.

    What one piece of advice would you give other prospective customers?

    Give Check Point a chance to do the POC and you won't believe how easy these firewalls are to implement and manage. Our infrastructure team was very wary of placing internal firewalls into the network. After some minor growing pains, this tool has provided invaluable insight into traffic and network configurations.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Ease of use, log management and integration into SIEM solutions.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    I would have liked to meet with our professional services team prior to their arrival for actual implementation.

    If you could start over, what would your organization do differently?

    More planning and faster implementation times.
