We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature is threat prevention.""The most valuable feature of Check Point CloudGuard Network Security is the ease of use. It was not difficult to learn.""The installation process doesn't take very long.""All our connections are secure.""The comprehensiveness of the CloudGuard’s threat prevention security is great, especially once they integrate Dome9 in the whole thing. That really ties the whole thing together, so you can tie your entire cloud environment together into one central location, which is nice. Previously, we had three or four different tools that we were trying to leverage to do the same stuff that we are able to do with CloudGuard.""The most valuable features are the VPN Blade, IPS Blade, the URL filtering, and the Applications Control Blade.""It's possible to sync the Check Point Management with the cloud portal, therefore allowing automated rules to be set in place whenever creating a new VM.""The initial setup is pretty easy."

"One of the most valuable features is that it's a firewall-based solution. We just open the required reports to the server—to server communication—and that's how we use Deep Security.""Easy to scale, stable solution for workload and server security and protection. It's easy to set up and has a good ransomware protection feature.""Support and threat prevention are the most valuable features of this solution.""We find that their technical support team is always accessible and willing to assist.""Technical support is good.""It integrates well with the cloud; for example, AWS, and Google Cloud Provider.""Deep Security provides us with a lot of reassurance about security threats. You don't have to worry about a patch not being there in the software. You're confident that all the patches and vulnerabilities are taken care of.""It provides security and protection. The endpoint firewall is valuable."

Cons
"At the cost level, the solution is somewhat expensive.""This application can be more integrated with web application firewalls. Better integrations would provide more granularity, which would be helpful for focusing on the application itself and preventing attacks. It would be good to include the cross-domain search. If you have multiple firewalls that are managed on the same platform and you want to check who is using some particular objects or where a specific ID is being used, it should provide an option for this kind of search instead of having to check one by one on each firewall.""CloudGuard functions just like any other firewall. It functions very well. The only thing that could maybe be improved would be to integrate some tools that are not integrated with the SmartConsole, like the SmartView Monitor that we need to open on a different application to access.""As an administrator, I can say that among all of the Check Point products I have been working with so far, the Virtual Systems solution is one of the most difficult.""Its architecture and user interface need improvement. The user experience for this solution also needs to be improved, particularly in implementation, management, and operations.""We did not use the AWS Transit Gateway, and that's one of the things that we're currently using. I believe we will be working with Check Point again, in the near future, to implement it, once they start having proper support for a single customer with multiple accounts. When we were using them, we had to install Check Point on each and every single account.""Check Point support could improve.""I would like to see a step-by-step initial installation of the firewall. That would be really helpful. Like in Oracle appliances, when you start it asks you, what's your current IP address? An initial setup should be a step by step and intuitive process. You click on "begin," it asks you some simple questions. You fill in the blanks - your current IP address, what you want to do, you want to set up a site to site VPN, for example, that kind of thing. That would be the smartest thing to have."

"The price could be reduced.""The product isn't very user-friendly.""I would like to see better pricing. The pricing could be lower.""The problem with this solution is that if you go on large sites you have to have an external database, which would increase the cost.""The risk is very complex. We need our tools to be more intelligent, more automated, more detectable.""I would like to see an EDR function for the servers, as that would be useful for us.""Some of the reporting and integrations could be more robust.""There should be more tools to trace back. Some sort of module needs to be included to attach all the things. It should be more stable, and the traceback feature should be improved. There were cases when we got virtual analyzer or CMC errors. We got false-positive malware notifications, but we couldn't trace them. I raised a case with Trend Micro two or three times, but they couldn't resolve it. Their support should be improved in terms of technical abilities to troubleshoot complex issues. They should be more knowledgeable."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "Pricing of CloudGuard is pretty fair when you have a single account. It's comparable with other cloud providers. But for our use case, it got really pricey when we had to deploy multiple CloudGuards on multiple accounts in different regions, because you can't have CloudGuard protecting multiple regions. That's the big thing."
  • "The pricing and licensing have been good. We just had to do a license increase for our portion of it. We had that done within a couple of days. Given the fact that it's purely a software-based license, it ends up being even quicker than doing it for an on-prem firewall."
  • "It is not expensive, but it is a little bit above the middle range. There are other solutions that are a little more expensive than this, but they also have some interesting features."
  • "The price could be better."
  • "You get charged only for what resources you choose and how much traffic actually passes through the firewall, which in turn saves a lot of money."
  • "Although I don't have specifics for pricing, based on my overall experience, I can conclude that Check Point provides the best pricing when comparing to other vendors."
  • "Licensing is available on a monthly or yearly basis."
  • "The cost is on the higher side, as it is based on workload, hence we need to decide which VPC or workload needs to be part of CloudGuard."

  • "It's more expensive than other solutions, such as Sophos and Kaspersky, as an endpoint solution."
  • "The solution is considerably cheaper than other similar solutions."
  • "There is a license for this solution and there are extra features you can purchase."
  • "We are paying approximately $50,000 each month, it's definitely expensive."
  • "It is a very expensive solution. It would be nice if they lower its price. Its license is based on the machines."
  • "The pricing is okay. Deep Security is single-server license-based, so it will work based on how many licenses you have procured. There is a yearly subscription for each license."
  • "We pay a yearly fee of between $10,000 and $15,000."
  • "There is a subscription cost to use this product."

    Reviews from Real Users

    Trend Micro Deep Security stands out among its competitors for a number of reasons. Two major ones are its robust data and loss prevention feature and its patch management, which saves users money. PeerSpot users take note of the advantages of these features in their reviews:

    One PeerSpot reviewer, a Senior Security Advisor at a healthcare company, writes, “DLP, Data Loss Prevention, and the complexity of how we manage the console and how this client, or this tool, will notify us when there is something going wrong within the server and endpoint, is good.”

    Nadeem S., CEO at Haniya Technologies, notes of the solution, “Patch management is most valuable. The major selling point of Deep Security is that it is based on the cloud. Deep Security is for the servers and databases of data centers, and generally, for patch management, you have to shut down the machines, and then you have to restart them. So, they need shutdown time, which is a cost.”
