It's easy to use and durable but the interface should be more user-friendly
Pros and Cons
  • "The usability is the most valuable feature. It's really easy to use. It's a durable solution. I don't have any breaches. It is a good solution from that angle."
  • "The interface could be more user-friendly. They should improve the look and feel."

What is our primary use case?

We use the private cloud deployment model. We use AWS as our cloud provider. Our primary use case is for my users who are mobile. If I want them to connect from wherever they are and build connections to the emails. It's for my management that are usually very mobile.

What is most valuable?

The usability is the most valuable feature. It's really easy to use. It's a durable solution. I don't have any breaches. It is a good solution from that angle. 

What needs improvement?

The interface could be more user-friendly. They should improve the look and feel.

I would like to see more meaningful logs in the next release. The way the system is now, it's pretty expensive. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using this solution for three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

I've not had an issue with this solution. There were issues when we did it first, there were a few problems with instability. People were not able to log in. But I think it's fine now because now, from a products point of view, it was the best solution.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I'm okay with the scalability. It's flexible enough. I currently have around 400 users. The users are primarily branch managers and top management of the bank.

We don't have any plans to increase the usage as of now. 

How are customer service and technical support?

Their technical support is good. We don't have any issues with them. Anytime we have a problem, they help us. 

How was the initial setup?

The deployment took around three months. 

What about the implementation team?

We used an integrator for the deployment. We used our partners for the integration and customization. 

What other advice do I have?

We had initial problems because our requirements were not well defined. You should define your use case. You should also look into other options to see what else there is out there and what they offer. 

I would rate it a seven out of ten.

Easy deployment: We simply send a link through email to a user, they install the software and are protected
Pros and Cons
  • "The easy deployment is the key for us. I can simply send a link through email to a user, then they install the software and are protected."
  • "I would like to see more visibility into the actual devices that it's protecting. In some cases, you don't want to see a lot. However, for our purposes, I would like to see more information about the applications which are installed, then have more control over what can and what cannot be installed."

What is our primary use case?

We use SandBlast to protect our mobile devices, as well as our iPads and Samsung tablets. 

How has it helped my organization?

We use SandBlast, internally, as a test bed so we can go out and sell it. The ease of the deployment to users has been key, and most beneficial for us.

What is most valuable?

The easy deployment is the key for us. I can simply send a link through email to a user, then they install the software and are protected.

What needs improvement?

I would like to see more visibility into the actual devices that it's protecting. In some cases, you don't want to see a lot. However, for our purposes, I would like to see more information about the applications which are installed, then have more control over what can and what cannot be installed. That would be very useful for us.

The GUI could be a bit more intuitive, as far as going from page to page and understanding what you're looking in the beginning. After you use it for a while, you get used it.

For how long have I used the solution?

Three to five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We've had it deployed for about three years now. We have had no hiccups nor issues with it at all going down. Also, we have not experienced any difficulties with it protecting devices.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

In terms of the scalability, we have not pushed the limits of the product yet. We only have around 20 users deployed at this time.

How are customer service and technical support?

We deal directly with the Sales Engineers (SEs) for SandBlast. So, we're not a typical user where we are using technical support from Check Point. Therefore, we haven't used their technical support.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was very straightforward, not complex at all. For us, it was simply sending out an email link to our users. They installed it from the App Store, and that's it.

What about the implementation team?

Check Point deployed it for us. The experience was simple and easy. Check Point was helpful, as far as explaining the deployment and showing us how to use the software with the GUI.

I was the administrator of the deployment.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

We didn't actually purchase the software. It was given to us by Check Point. We are using it as a test bed for possible future customers. 

What other advice do I have?

I would rate it a nine of ten because of the ease of installing it. Using it on a daily basis, the administration is quite easy. 

I would advise someone considering SandBlast to have some definite use cases in mind before deploying it. That way you can deploy it very specifically towards what you are going to be using it for.

It does the process in the background and it does a wonderful job but the methodologies don't pop up. They should make it more interactive.

Scalability is at quite a good level. We'll scale along with the product if we wish to grow.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was quite simple.

What about the implementation team?
