Quick and easy setup. Our third-party vendor helped out with much of the install and configuration.

Check Point Endpoint security is an excellent addition to a mobile workforce when the need for security is paramount. In a financial industry where sensitive data is common and the machines that house it are mobile, being able to secure that data is just as critical as the data itself.

It's a very complete solution. It covers all our security needs in only one client. The only downside is that CheckPoint always takes too much time to adapt it's application to new solutions/versions, as just happens with W10 compatibility. For MAC clients, we just gave up.

When we outgrew the initial hardware platform, Checkpoint convinced us to purchase two of their appliances, which we did. Subsequently we tried to implement them on our own and were unsuccessful. We then hired Checkpoint professional services which were also unsuccessful in getting them to work. Then Checkpoint refused to take back the new appliances leaving us stuck with them. Checkpoint then walked away showing no interest in making things right.

The Vendor provided a relatively poor implementation strategy and varying contradicting information for requirements. The process of creating a Windows Server for hosting the application and database was convoluted and highly ineffectual. We ended up scraping that idea entirely as the Windows Server path and the GAIA Server with their own version of Linux on it were differing. So when we were told we could get the same features on Windows Server that we could in the GAIA environment it turned out to be false. It was a very frustrating process. After installing the GAIA server however the process was much smoother. We obtained the correct version after several tries getting what was recommended to us and I was able to setup the software in about a day. Deployment did not go very well either as the installation failed on about 30 percent of our machines. The only support we recived from Checkpoint was that it was a Windows issue. We are forced to rebuild those few hundred machines. The software also interferes with several other applications causing various issues. On Windows 10 Cisco AnyConnect updates were problematic, Mimecast for Outlook could not be run, and several Firewall related issues were seen even though the firewall was not installed from Checkpoints software. We had never had these issues with the older version 74 of Checkpoint, but that version was much older and did not integrate into Windows as thouroughly.

Great customer service

Checkpoint has a good product out of the box. Sales support is not that great however, and you have to do your homework and push the vendor for concrete answers.

Checkpoint has demonstrated its considerable expertise in detecting and erradicating risks. while they currently have a comprehensive product suite, they are currently hindered by a lack of better integration between products. However, having been a Checkpoint customer for many, many years now, I can see the steady growth and increased integration and interoperability.
