We performed a comparison between Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management and Skyhigh Security based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The integration with Logic Apps allows for automated responses to incidents."
"It is very intuitive when it comes to policy administration, alerts and notifications, and ease of setting up roles at different hierarchies. It has also been good in terms of the network technology maps. It provides a good overview, but it also depends on the complexity of your network."
"It works seamlessly on the Azure platform because it's a Microsoft app. Its setup is similar, so if you already have a Microsoft account, it just flows into it."
"When we started out, our secure score was pretty low. We adopted some of the recommendations that Security Center set out and we were able to make good progress on improving it. It had been in the low thirties and is now in the upper eighties."
"The most valuable features are ransomware protection and access controls. The solution has helped us secure some folders on our systems from unauthorized modifications."
"Most importantly, it's an integrated solution. We not only have Defender for Cloud, but we also have Defender for Endpoint, Defender for Office 365, and Defender for Identity. It's an integrated, holistic solution."
"It isn't a highly complex solution. It's something that a lot of analysts can use. Defender gives you a broad overview of what's happening in your environment, and it's a great solution if you're a Microsoft shop."
"With respect to improving our security posture, it helps us to understand where we are in terms of compliance. We can easily know when we are below the standard because of the scores it calculates."
"Good interface and visibility."
"The most valuable feature is the CloudBots for auto-remediation of security findings."
"Alerts of cloud activity happening across all accounts is helpful."
"It provides complete visibility of workload hosted on different cloud platforms including AWS and Azure, along with multiple tenants."
"This solution has saved the company from unnecessary data loss that occurs due to cyber attacks."
"Its easy implementation against Microsoft Azure was quite satisfactory."
"Auto remediation is a very effective feature that helps ensure less manual intervention."
"The most valuable feature of Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management is the training."
"Overall, the performance is good."
"What's most valuable in Skyhigh Security is its level of security. Another valuable feature of the solution is threat analysis."
"The product has a very high rating from reviewers. It's a well-respected product."
"It's an easy-to-use product."
"The most valuable features of MVISION Cloud are the automatic reports and modification incidents."
"It is easy to configure rules."
"What I found most valuable in Skyhigh Security is its stability. The solution also has good KB articles that make it simple for users to do the deployment of Skyhigh Security themselves, without the need for integrators."
"The feature I like best about Skyhigh Security is its wide range of product support. For example, my company had NetApp storage running, and Skyhigh Security has on-premises NetApp storage support, which isn't available in other solutions. Skyhigh Security also has a better filtering feature versus the filtering feature in other solutions."
"From my own perspective, they just need a product that is tailored to micro-segmentation so I can configure rules for multiple systems at once and manage it."
"Consistency is the area where the most improvement is needed. For example, there are some areas where the UI is not uniform across the board."
"Another thing that could be improved was that they could recommend processes on how to react to alerts, or recommend best practices based on how other organizations do things if they receive an alert about XYZ."
"The overview provides you with good information, but if you want more details, there is a lot more customization to do, which requires knowledge of the other supporting solutions."
"Azure is a complex solution. You have so many moving parts."
"If a customer is already using Okta as an SSO in its entire environment, they will want to continue with it. But Security Center doesn't understand that and keeps making recommendations. It would help if it let us resolve a recommendation, even if it is not implemented."
"I would suggest building a single product that addresses endpoint server protection, attack surface, and everything else in one solution. That is the main disadvantage with the product. If we are incorporating some features, we end up in a situation where this solution is for the server, and that one is for the client, or this is for identity, and that is for our application. They're not bundling it. Commercially, we can charge for different licenses, but on the implementation side, it's tough to help our end-customer understand which product they're getting."
"They could always work to make the pricing a bit lower."
"The reporting dashboard responds slowly, which leads to late report compilation."
"In Dome9, there should be a policy validation option where we can validate the policy before we push it into production."
"Check Point's support, customer service, SLAs, and schedules can be improved a little."
"Integration could be improved."
"The entire system is complicated, and the setup process may not cater to the company's demands."
"Almost all features are good, however, they still require improvements to the code security portion on which integration with the major source code repository is required."
"Reporting should have more options."
"The tool has a lot of potential, but today, it lacks a lot of Scripts/Bots for Azure."
"The solution is hard to configure, our team does not have specific training requirements for McAfee making it difficult."
"There isn't really any aspect that is lacking."
"McAfee needs to add more products that could be managed from the cloud."
"You have to have some kind of background with cloud-based security, like working with different providers and how to make instances in the clouds and that kind of stuff - including cloud, networking cloud, cloud application development, anything like that is a requirement to be in the CASB space."
"MVISION Cloud is not well known and there should be more information about the solution. There could be integration to local applications."
"Skyhigh Security, as a product, is excellent, but in terms of the right services and support, those are lagging very much, for example, in Trellix. From one hundred, its score has gone down to ten, so ten out of one hundred, otherwise, it's the number one product."
"One thing that can be improved is their ability to integrate with other web proxies to discover unsanctioned IP apps."
"One area for improvement I've seen in Skyhigh Security is that it lacks support for unsanctioned applications, where customers have their applications. Those applications do not come from Microsoft or other popular vendors. For example, Microsoft has support for Teams and it has support for OneDrive, but it doesn't have support for custom applications built by customers. Customers have internal teams building and publishing applications to the external world, but Skyhigh Security doesn't have support for those applications, and this is the main problem I've seen. The solution only supports a pool of applications that are from Microsoft and other major SaaS vendors. McAfee doesn't provide support for custom applications, compared to other vendors who provide it. For example, Bitglass and Netskope both have support for custom applications. Another area for improvement in Skyhigh Security is that its API support is a little weak. I also have not seen a strong integration between the solution and other McAfee products."

Reviews from Real Users
Below are some reviews and helpful feedback written by PeerSpot users currently using the Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management solution.
An Advisory Information Security Analyst at a financial services firm says, "Security visibility accuracy is tremendous, letting us see who is trying to access what. I love the work involved in maintaining and scaling security services and configurations across multiple public clouds using this solution, versus using native native cloud security controls. It is so much better.”
PeerSpot user Schillebeeks B., Owner at AD Internet Consulting, mentions, "The two most valuable features for us are the central firewall administrator and the real-time cloud compliance monitoring."
Another reviewer, a Senior Security Engineer at an insurance company, states, "The audit feature is the most valuable for compliance reasons. It gives you a full view of the whole environment, no matter how many accounts you have in AWS or Azure. You have it all under one umbrella."
Mantu S., Sr. Technology Architect at Incedo Inc., comments, "Auto remediation is a very effective feature that helps ensure less manual intervention."
