Check Point Next Generation Firewalls

  • November 29, 2021

What do you like best?
Both we ourselves and our customers find a very successful implementation of the virtual private networks client, since for some time now everyone has been working from home and on the firewall from the checkpoint, this function is implemented very conveniently and securely. I would also like to note a convenient new version of the firewall management console, which, starting with the R80 version, has become the same for many checkpoint blades, but unfortunately not for all. You still need to use older consoles to manage some features
What do you dislike?
Finally, you need to merge all the old consoles into one new one and make the interface more convenient for the novice administrator. Also, until now, the initial settings as well as subsequent changes to the "iron" part of the firewall, namely its interfaces, routing or DCCP settings, you must use the web interface through a browser. Which, of course, is inconvenient. Of course, you can use the command line for these purposes, but this also complicates the configuration process for the administrator and requires a well-known habit.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Our organization implements, maintains and operates the Checkpoint firewall. Checkpoint solutions were implemented by our organization in accordance with the project documentation and further adjusted at the request of the customer. We ourselves also use a checkpoint firewall in conjunction with a firewall from another vendor both to protect our network perimeter and to test various functions and new emerging firewall capabilities and identify various bugs before they reach customers in the product environment.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Before installing, I recommend going through the training.

Excellent NGFW packed with features which delivers each time

What do you like best?
Smart Console provides a single pane of glass that allows the IT-sfaff to manage the environment and troubleshoot issues easily. The UI decrease the hours required to complete a task. It also incorporate compliance and audit control validation into the system. IT-staff can construct a single policy across all enforcement points in the Infinity architecture. A unified policy table that combined threat prevention and segmentation policies. SmartEvent allows consolidated event management and export.
What do you dislike?
SmartEvent blade, with a large number of security events/logs and are trying to find the correlation with the help of SmartEvent blade, it may impact the performance of your Check Point management server. That requires additional licenses for Check Point management servers. It should be inbuilt with a management server. With the increase of traffic volume, the required resource/hardware to be properly run the production goes up. Hardware engineering to architecture flow to have it more efficient.

Great technical support, adapts fantastic to any environment

What do you like best?
The support Check Point gives is key. As the Firewall vendor, I recommend them. It's always great to work with them. For this reason, I am very satisfied with Check Point. Every doubt I had they were pleased to help with and we ab;e to provide a resolution. The technical services always replied in a very fast and effective way. The live chat is great as well. There is always someone willing to help. This makes working with Check Point a good experience.

Check Point expert mode is basically Linux, so working with that allows us to implement a variety of scripts.
What do you dislike?
In earlier versions, it was a bit hard to do migrations of Multi-Domain Servers/CMAs, nowadays, with +R80.30 it has gotten much easier. I cannot really think of many things to improve.

One thing that could be useful is to have a website to analyze CP Infos. This way, it would be much faster to debug problems or check configurations.

Another thing not very annoying but enough to comment on is when preparing a bootable UBS with the ISOMorphic (Check Point's bootable USB tool), it gives the option to attach a Hotfix. However, this usually causes corrupted ISO installations.

One thing to improve is the VSX gateway. It is quite complex to work with VSX and they are quite easy to break if you aren't familiar with them.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
The scalability of Check Point is great. With the usage of Multi-Domain Servers, you can integrate all the devices into one console. You also always have the chance to expand creating new domains. Also, this distribution helps to have a very structured and organized management. It is always a very good thing when things don't go as expected and you need to solve any problem. Finding where the issue is in your organization is key.

Easy and standardized management interface and up-to-date security options and scalability to match almost any firewall security needs.

Several security modules are based on https inspection, losing a relevant security capabilities if you doesn't implement it in your network. Although this is not a limitation of the product itself.

Recommendations to others considering the product:
Take, at least, the basic training so you can manage the solution adequately. And check the vendor's knowledge base so you can find if there is any incompatibility with your network.

Best firewalls in the Industry!

  • November 19, 2021
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
Probably the best feature of the Check Point Next Generation Firewalls is their stateful inspection. We feel that is gives us a better level of security in our networks than other solutions that do not incorporate stateful inspections.
What do you dislike?
Some of the smaller hardware modules like the lower-end 3000 series Next Generation Firewalls can be a little bit underpowered, especially when performing intensive procedures like taking a snapshot.
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Check Point Next Generation Firewalls have allowed us to enjoy a safe and secure network experience for both our own networks, and those of our clients.
Recommendations to others considering the product:
Just be sure you acquire the right size device to allow for network expansions
