    Product(s): Check Point Next Generation Threat Prevention

    Implementation is relatively easy but planning and expertise are key

    Overall Comment

    Performance and functionality are great. VSX implementation is overly complex and has limitations that are not readily apparent.

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

    understand all of your use cases and make sure you have competent staff to engineer and manage the solution.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    Functionality and vision.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    Complex

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Made their licensing easier to understand and manage

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

    Not be overly complex in the first installation. We attempted to leverage their virtualization platform (VSX) to save time and money, but in the end it was overly complex and hard to manage.

    Service & support - overall comment

    We opted for Diamond support and while its worth it for really deep technical questions, simple issues/questions seem to take a long time to answer.

    Product(s): Threat Emulation Cloud Service

    Great addition for security but needs to become more mature

    Overall Comment

    The Threat Emulation is able to catch a lot of the unknown zero-day threats that manage to bypass other Antivirus and Malware scanners adding additional protection to our infrastructure. However, we discovered a lot of bugs related to it.

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

    Run a PoC with production traffic for a while to get a complete picture of the sizing required and the possible impact.

    What do you like most about the product or service?

    The detection rate compared to other solutions.

    What do you dislike most about the product?

    The number of bugs we had to deal and we keep dealing with. The slowness that RND is addressing these bugs.

    What one thing do you wish the vendor did differently?

    Better product testing, better support.

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

    Perhaps wait for the solution to become a bit more mature.

    Integration & Deployment - Overall comment

    The product integrates well enough with our Check Point gateways but it did impact their performance and stability.
