Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Network protection, OS protection, application protection, and file protection are valuable. It is also easy to implement and manage.""I really like the application scanning feature that scans all of the installed applications, and not only what appears in the add or remove apps, and then reports the results in the console.""The use and management of our portal is easy.""The best thing about the product is that it is transparent and does not impact the users.""We have applied MFA so that no one can bypass this security and the users/employees can access their resources very easily, securely, and seamlessly.""Internal applications, data, and folders are published on enrolled mobile devices in a secure way without publishing any of the resources over the internet.""We like Harmony's ability to encrypt transactions between mobile devices. All the user's transactions are encrypted. That's an excellent feature. We can detect, quarantine, and address any issues in the handset itself.""The environment is managed and administered centrally in Check Point Infinity which provides a lot of stability with its other features."

Cons
"If possible, it would be better if they can include vulnerability management for applications. When a user installs many applications, if there is a way to manage a pack of applications, it would be helpful.""We can say that this is a very good solution but Check Point has to reduce the cost.""The service provided by Check Point at the technical support level is somewhat slow, and they only provide help in English, which limits some clients.""The admin portal is slightly clunky and sometimes shows a different status than what the device is actually doing.""Harmony Mobile could be improved with increased built-in DLP coverage.""Harmony has more support for Android OS as opposed to iOS. You need a third-party MDM solution to integrate with iOS. If you don't have an MDM, your app can't scan on an iOS device. The solution can scan everything on Android. It sees all your apps.""It would be super helpful if there were more details around the risks that were found on our mobile devices.""Maybe the support issue could improve over time."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The cost is huge compared to other products, and it seems this solution is only for companies with a large budget."
  • "This is a very expensive product."
  • "The quality, price, and support ratio are very good."
  • "Regarding the cost of licenses, each device consumes one, even if it has both professional and personal profiles."
  • "Check Point provides a separate license in cases where organizations want to use this only on mobile devices, or laptops/desktops."
  • "At the moment, the price is good, but there is always scope for amelioration when it comes to pricing. When pricing is lower, it can make a customer buy the product. Customers ask us about the price of the product before allowing us to explain the functionality to them."
