Ease of management and deployment

  • March 10, 2020
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best about the product?
This is a good solution to support branch sites that are far distance so there is no need to worry about hardware failures of having to do upgrades to the platform anymore.
The integration with the SD-WAN device at the new site was relatively straight forward and the management interface is simple and easy to apply rules.
HTTPS inspection deployment was also easy to setup and much more manageable than using the Smartconsole.
What do you dislike about the product?
There are still some features that are in Smartconsole and the Gaia platform that need to be added but hopefully these will be there soon.
What problems is the product solving and how is that benefiting you?
This helped us deploy similar protection that we have on our main sites to a site in Japan. The ongoing maintenance of having to support a hardware platform in this region would have been unmanageable. It was good that we could support dual ISP connections bridging from our SD-WAN to Checkpoint CloudGuard which gave us backup resiliency but also making use of both circuits for extra bandwidth.
Any upgrades in the future will just be a case of purchasing more licenses as the site grows.
The platform is very manageable especially for someone with some knowledge of Checkpoint R80.

    Cloud network security manager

Easy-to-use threat prevention and cloud network security solution with great functionality!

  • January 21, 2020
  • Review verified by AWS Marketplace

My company has been using Check Point's CloudGuard IaaS security gateway and security management for advanced threat prevention, cloud network security and secure VPN connectivity between my corporate network and my AWS environment (tens of VPCs).
It is easy to learn, easy to deploy, easy to maintain, has the highest threat catch-rate to the best of my knowledge (and I compared it extensively with competitors) and provides extremely high value to me, my team and my company.
It is also natively integrated with AWS services, including VPC Ingress Routing, Transit Gateway, VPC Flow Logs, Security Hub, etc., making for a great user experience and definitely "better together" with AWS.

Thanks Check Point!
