Next Generation Firewall

Products works as expected with strong support for implementation from the sales team.

For the most part, Check Point products work as advertised. The User Center is always helpful and the sales and sales engineer team is very helpful. However, TAC is dreadful. The support that we receive when calling TAC is usually not helpful at all unless we are able to escalate to Tier 3.

Next Generation Firewall, R80 Security Management

Implementation was easy and very user-friendly, risk free device

Overall very user-friendly device and more than anything its stable and flexible to use. Technically implementation is neat and simple.

Initial configuration can take a while to sort out, but works great when completed.

Experience with Check Point products and company has been good -- the training and support from the Check Point team is better than any of the vendors I've used in the past (Cisco, Fortinet, SonicWALL). NGFW management is a bit different than any of the other firewalls I've used. Glad to see that they have added abiility to granularly control which features are turned on/off for an ACL in R80, everyone else has been doing that for a while. Some features can be confusing to implement (NAT on Check Point is just weird). All of that said, once configured the product runs as expected. VPNs between Checkpoint devices are simple to configure and manage. Haven't had the hardware or firmware problems with CP that I had with other vendors (Fortinet specifically seemed to have never-ending issues). Logging/analysis out of the box is better than other products I've used, and tools like "cpview" make troubleshooting a historical moment in time much easier.

Check Point Security Gateway Virtual Edition (vSEC), Next Generation Firewall, SandBlast Zero-Day Protection

All products work as advertised and keeps our maintenance overhead low

The Check Point product line works extremely well. It takes some getting used to but once you know it, everything else is easy.

Next Generation Firewall, SandBlast Zero-Day Protection

Very Satisfied With Management and Threat Prevention

Very easy to manage all of the security featues from one place. We also use their SIEM product, NGSE, which makes identifying and correlating events very streamlined. This gives us the ability to quickly investigate threats and make decisions without having to look in multiple places. NGSE is also very good at creating reports that are very useful in making business decisions and investigating incidents.

Outstanding Customer Support and Leading Technology in Security

Excellent product suite. Can be very complex but is rock solid.

As the inventor of the stateful firewall, Check Point has matured in its product offerings and provides an effective, manageable UTM solution. Their support desk is top-shelf. While most other vendors outsource support to overseas vendors for cost reasons, Check Point provides U.S. and Canadian-based support services.

Fantastic product and support but do your gound work before deployment

Excellent the local Checkpoint is a fully certified CCSE with ample experience and familiarity with the product this cut out the usual approach of channelling requests through sales or account managers employed by every other vendor and greatly enhanced the deployment and support of the product. The inital learning curve is a little steep coming from other platfroms but once mastered you wont look back. I recommend getting your hands on a virtual instance and deploying it in a lab and perhaps the CCSA course before diving in also the Max Power: Check Point Firewall Performance Optimization is a must read.
