"The Check Point SandBlast Mobile solution supports Android and iOS operating systems and allows for integration with Mobile Device Management (MDM)."
"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."
"We have had a lot fewer attacks thanks to this solution."
"Check Point Harmony Mobile has helped us a lot with security outside the perimeter through its mobile technology."
"The environment is managed and administered centrally in Check Point Infinity which provides a lot of stability with its other features."
"It has been very easy to implement and deploy."
"Harmony Mobile presents many innovative features."
"Network protection, OS protection, application protection, and file protection are valuable. It is also easy to implement and manage."
"One of the features I found very nice in Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile is that it's good at scanning and fixing issues on its own. The solution is very good at finding a lot of applications and notifying you about systems that have issues. Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile can run headless without having to report back which I found very nice about it. I also like that the solution would create alerts when a certain amount of time lapsed for systems, and it would recommend going through and scanning the systems. As an actual endpoint protection product, Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile is good."
"Compatibility with other Mobile Device Management (MDM) products on the market should be improved, ensuring correct operation between SandBlast Mobile and MDM."
"One of the improvements that can be made is that they become compatible with Google MDM."
"We can say that this is a very good solution but Check Point has to reduce the cost."
"Harmony Mobile could be improved with increased built-in DLP coverage."
"The deployment in the Android system is very simple but in the case of iOS, it is more complicated so the users require attention from our CAU."
"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."
"Maybe the support issue could improve over time."
"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."
"For a lot of the issues my team experienced from Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile, Symantec said that getting the issues resolved would mean going through the partner that sold the product and creating an incident report to get the team to work on the actual company environment. A lot of the problems my team has been having from Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile were associated with Outlook for endpoint users who were being locked out of the Outlook application. Another area for improvement in Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile is its central web hub, where you're supposed to be able to update all of the endpoints because it wasn't reaching the endpoints. For example, even if the central web hub was able to see the endpoints and do the required scans, whenever you'd go to do a policy change, the policy change wouldn't propagate down to the endpoints. The central web hub allows you to monitor all of your endpoints and allows you to choose actions you'd want to do to each of the endpoints such as pushing down on updates or scanning the system. The problem my team usually gets is that majority of the time, whenever my team would do policy updates, the updates won't propagate down to the users, so it was very inconsistent. Needing to manually go through and scan systems is also an area for improvement in Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile. Currently, there's no way to automate its scanning process. A lot of the other issues started appearing in Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile during situations when people wanted to customize different applications. Symantec doesn't like people doing a lot of customizations. For example, the main problem in my company is users losing access to Outlook, but then my team discovered that there was a specific policy set that you could disable, and it would fix a lot of the Outlook issues. However, when you'd go to change that policy set and attach that to a user to overwrite policies on the user side, it just wouldn't do anything for that user. It wouldn't even show that the policy was updated, so this is what needs to be improved in Symantec Endpoint Protection Mobile."
