We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The dashboard is intuitive. You know if you're compliant or not, and then it gives you a remediation plan.""Its easy implementation against Microsoft Azure was quite satisfactory.""The administration portal panel is very intuitive.""It presents great visibility of the traffic flow of our cloud, providing information on what data and users are circulating and in the event of a threat, it immediately identifies them by providing detailed and granular information from our entire environment.""We really liked its ease of implementation against our Microsoft Azure environment.""The reporting is quite good. It is the most powerful aspect of this solution.""The solution offers an excellent price, benefit, and installation relationship.""Alerts of cloud activity happening across all accounts is helpful."

"It provides visibility of events, what's going on with the environment, what we're missing with our other solution, and the user behavior.""It is very intuitive. It is a point and click type of deal.""Check Point's technical support is very good.""The product is a fairly complete and centralized solution accessible through the Infinity Portal.""Its characteristics are adapted to the most modern threats.""For Threat Prevention, I was impressed with this feature and the solution's effectiveness. It has been very good.""The stuff that it's picking up and blocking and stopping from coming into our environment has been fantastic.""As with most of the other Check Point products, the CloudGuard SaaS has the advanced visibility of the events and alerts."

Cons
"Integration could be improved.""Currently, I would like this solution extended to cellular devices or tablets.""CloudGuard could be more customizable. It has built-in standards for things like GDPR compliance. But depending on your business lane, you might want to build your own controls based on your own standards.""The false positives can be annoying at times.""The accuracy of its remediation is a 7.5 out of 10. Before, I would have given it a ten but now, to handle remediation for fully qualified domain names, it's not working as it did in the past. We're finding some difficulties there.""I would like to see improvements in the vulnerability assessments in terms of how the solution discovers vulnerabilities or compromised workloads. Also, customizable reports would be nice.""It should have some options to activate API calls to the platform in the cloud, another improvement would be that when the rules are colonized and they want to be published.""Currently, worldwide, there are many companies of all sizes that do not understand the value that their data has, but even with all existing clouds, they also do not understand what the shared responsibility model is. They only assume that by having a cloud, the provider must ensure safety, when the truth is that the providers only secure their sites. Everything we do in the cloud and how we configure it is actually our responsibility."

"It would also be very good if they improved the support management since sometimes they take a long time to respond, or offer help only during office hours, which is not the most convenient.""The NAVEX metrics that I have been using on the CloudGuard dashboard cannot be exported. If they were to add report exporting capabilities on each of metric objects on the dashboard, that would be awesome.""Cloud Guard would be a complete solution if Check Point added a comprehensive data loss solution that included capabilities such as bulk data transfer detection.""The implementation could definitely be better.""Other vendor support teams go after fixing the issue the moment that they join the remote session. The problem that I have faced with Check Point support is that they share the case number with me, then it takes at least two days for them to join a remote session with us, even though we have asked for this timeframe to change. Even though we have already explained the problems that we are facing or the business pain points in our network on the call or email, we have to repeat the problem statements again in the console. It can take four or five days to resolve the issue from the moment they understand the problem. This includes the time to teach their R&D or internal team whatever the issue is. I have faced timeframes as long as seven to 10 days for fixing some issues.""Check Point has to continue refining the intelligence engine to minimize the number of false positives.""Check Point Infinity Portal sometimes feels a bit slow, and there are performance issues that should be easy to fix.""We understand that false positives are always there, but sometimes the notifications are more than expected."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The pricing is tremendous and super cheap. It is shockingly cheap for what you get out of it. I am happy with that. I hope that doesn't get reported back and they increase the prices. I love the pricing and the licensing makes sense. It is just assets: The more stuff that you have, the more you pay."
  • "Licensing and costs are straightforward, as they have a baseline of 100 workloads within one license and no additional charges."
  • "The license for CloudGuard Posture Management is about $80 a year, and it's based on your cloud footprint, not the number of users. So you could have a million users, and it doesn't matter."
  • "From a pricing perspective, they are pretty expensive."
  • "In the beginning, the price of Dome9 was cheap, whereas now it is not."
  • "Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management is always known as a good solution but an expensive one. When you're using Cisco, Check Point, or Palo Alto, you know that you will pay more, but you know that it will work."
  • More Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "The pricing and licensing are always negotiable."
  • "You can get CloudGuard as part of Infinity. When you do the solution through Infinity, it's a per user type of license cost."
  • "I'm in this business as a system integrator, so I need to suggest Check Point to some customers who are comparing products. I sell Check Point, Fortinet, and Palo Alto solutions. In terms of licensing, this solution is quite competitive but very costly. For someone looking at security as a primary concern, they should only invest in Check Point. For a customer who is looking at security combined with pricing, Check Point might not be the core solution for them. In today's market, customers are looking for effective security with efficient pricing, and Check Point is not suitable for these types of customers."
  • "This is a very good product if you are on the cloud, but the price is a little more expensive."
  • "Cost is the main concern that every customer takes into consideration, and Check Point always negotiates a price that is affordable."
  • "Reasonable cost, quick and easy implementation, and transparent."
  • "Check Point is more expensive. That's the honest truth. So far, it's a good value for the money."

    Overview

    Check Point CloudGuard provides cloud native security for all your assets and workloads, across multi-clouds, allowing you to automate security everywhere, with unified threat prevention and posture management. The only solution that provides context to secure your cloud with confidence.

    Check Point Harmony Email and Office is a cloud-based software offering complete protection to stop malware attacks through emails. The software is designed to provide protection for organizations using Office 365, G Suite, Google Workspace, and all other collaboration and file-sharing apps. Access permissions can be granted and custom policies can be defined for any user of choice.

    Check Point Harmony Email and Office identifies and blocks advanced malware, phishing, and ransomware attacks in real time before they reach the user’s inbox. In turn, this also helps protect sensitive business data from breaches. Harmony Email and Office was the first solution to implement machine learning, API, and AI for email security, and will ultimately prevent any attempts at account takeover via agentless multi-factor authentication.

    What is Complete Protection?

    Check Point Harmony Email and Office offers a superior catch rate for collaboration apps and cloud email with their API-based solution that detects attacks that other solutions miss, including account takeover, supply chain attacks, ransomware, and BEC. The complete protection offers:

    • Malware Protection - Recognized by NSS Labs as “most effective in breach prevention,” the solution leverages technologies to bring clean files to users within 1.5 seconds. In addition, enterprises can be safer as the solution prevents malicious messages and files from reaching the user’s inbox.
    • Data Leakage Protection - Any confidential or sensitive information will be marked and have a classified suffix added to the end of the message or file to help keep those materials safe. Those files are encrypted, and the user will be alerted to any attempted breach of those messages.
    • Phishing Protection - Before advanced phishing attacks reach the end user, Harmony Email and Office detects and blocks them, including outbound, inbound, and internal communications.
    • Account Takeover Protection - After a user connects their cloud app, the solution captures the user's history and creates a profile and a custom threat profile. In the event of a suspected account takeover, threat intelligence is leveraged through millions of Check Point-secured gateways and endpoints and is blocked.

    Reviews from Real Users
