Check Point Remote Access VPN Pros

JM
Network Security Engineer/Architect at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
The biggest advantage of Check Point Remote Access VPN is that we already use the Check Point firewall. We only needed to enable the feature and do the configuration in order to enable the VPN feature. We didn't need to buy or manage new hardware. This was a big advantage.

I found the MEP feature the most valuable. This has improved users' latency allowing the users to connect to the nearest Azure Check Point VM.

Check Point Remote Access VPN Cons

JM
Network Security Engineer/Architect at a tech services company with 1,001-5,000 employees
We are very happy with the Windows client. You log in with the VPN for the full client, you do the log in there. But for Linux machines, they don't have a full client to install. It is important because we have some users that use Linux and they don't have a specific application from Check Point to use. That is something that could be improved.

The ability to allow split-tunneling while still following our corporate policy needs to be on the table.

You have no ability to reserve a total number of licenses. The VPN user licenses are assigned per gateway, and if you enable MEP function is not so easy to size the gateway licenses.

The fully-featured security module is only supported on Windows and Mac systems, which means that organizations with Linux will face issues providing secure access.

Compliance Check on Check Point should be improved by having more configurable conditions to support multi-platforms and adding more granularity.

This is the best version we are using, however, if some changes can be made in the next release, I'd like to see adjustments to the time period and internet connectivity.

For Linux machines, they don't have a full client to install. For the users that utilize Linux, there needs to be an equivalent.

Sometimes it causes the consumption of machine resources, and also improves the scanning since they consume many resources in the clients' machines.

Without a doubt and with the new trends in technology, Check Point should already have a blade with a 2MFA solution and not through some other vendor.
