Check Point Infinity Room for Improvement
The licensing model for Check Point Infinity is not clear. As infinity licenses are based on the number of users, it confuses larger organizations, where not every user needs every service.
For an organization size of more than 100,000 users, where only a few users need to have access to SandBlast Mobile for protecting their BYOD devices against threats, and there are a few users that need Capsule to access corporate data, and in addition, if the organization needs to protect all of the user's email accounts using Check Point Email Security, then it creates issues in terms of the license count. It is confusing when it comes to figuring out how to fulfill the requirements.
Even though we have had several support cases opened for the components of the Check Point Infinity architecture, as an administrator, I'm satisfied with the solution and the abilities it provides. I can't describe any disadvantages at the moment, except for the overall price of purchasing and maintaining the entire set of components.
I think that the pricing for the Check Point products should be reconsidered, as we found it to be quite expensive to purchase and to maintain. Maintenance requires that the licenses and the support services be prolonged regularly.
Alternatively, they should create some additional bundles of the software blades with significant discounts in addition to the current Next Generation Threat Prevention & SandBlast (NGTX) and Next Generation Threat Prevention (NGTP) offers.
They can improve the latency of the portal. Sometimes it takes a while to respond. It is not a good image for the client, however, with all the functionalities that this application has, almost all of us forget the slowness of the portal.
We would like to have more documentation for the new Check Point services which are very good but would be easier to implement.
Licensing is sometimes complex to understand, a good partner is needed to help us with the issue.View full review »
