Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"Setup using the manuals was easy.""Access is browser-based only and requires no additional client installation.""The biggest advantage of Check Point Remote Access VPN is that we already use the Check Point firewall. We only needed to enable the feature and do the configuration in order to enable the VPN feature. We didn't need to buy or manage new hardware.""The secure hotspot access for enabling good network connectivity is great.""It offers a simple configuration and setup.""Once we install and connect the VPN service, it keeps on running until we disconnect.""Organizations that already use the Check Point NGFW Solution do not require any additional hardware, which makes the implementation straightforward and reduces the time to go live.""It is easy to install the Endpoint Remote Access VPN client to different platforms."

Cons
"They need to increase their timeout. Right now, it will fail after ten seconds, however, it shouldn't fail until after 20 seconds.""The ability to allow split-tunneling while still following our corporate policy needs to be on the table.""The authentication that we handle is through a .p12 certificate, however, we have integrated it with a 2MFA service through another provider. Something that could improve Check Point is if it had its own 2MFA service through a blade or some sort of application.""This is the best version we are using, however, if some changes can be made in the next release, I'd like to see adjustments to the time period and internet connectivity.""Without a doubt and with the new trends in technology, Check Point should already have a blade with a 2MFA solution and not through some other vendor.""Check Point Remote Access VPN could be more user-friendly.""They could improve the support they provide for Check Point.""There was complexity in the initial setup."

    Overview

    Remote secure access VPN is a solution that provides users with remote access to an organization’s network. The host may have VPN client software loaded or use a web-based client. The solution leverages security features like multi-factor authentication, endpoint scanning, and encryption of all data in motion.

    Check Point Remote Access VPN provides individuals with protected and efficient access to a company network from anywhere. This strategy fosters collaboration and connectivity between distributed teams and offices.

    Features of Check Point Remote Access VPN

    Key features of the secure remote access VPN include:

    • Compliance Scanning

    The system enforces endpoint security with endpoint compliance. It monitors and verifies the security status of each endpoint and reports back to the Security Gateway. The gateway, in turn, checks the compliance level and directs the connectivity to the right resources.

    • 3 Deployment Options

    Users can deploy the Remote Access VPN in one of three ways:

    1. Integrated with an Endpoint Security solution. In this case, you get a firewall, an application control (not in macOS), the remote access VPN, and compliance features included in the package.
    2. As a Standalone Check Point Mobile for Windows. This package includes a remote access VPN and compliance features.
    3. As a Standalone Secure Remote. This tier only includes the Remote Access VPN.
    • Central Management

    Remote Access VPN is centrally managed. The centralized console enables management and enforcement of policies with a single log-in.

    • Mobile Access Option

    The Remote Access VPN has a web portal that users can use to connect securely to corporate applications, such as web-based resources, file-sharing, and email. Administrators can customize the web portal to match the brand identity.

    • 2 Remote Access Options

    Remote Access VPN offers two choices for remote access:

    1. SSL VPN Portal: Includes the mobile access web portal, an SSL network extender, Check Point Mobile for iOS and Android, and a capsule workspace for iOS and Android.
    2. Layer 3 VPN Tunnel: Includes the endpoint security remote access VPN, Check Point Mobile for Windows, the capsule connect for iOS and Android, the VPN plugin for Windows 8.1, and the capsule VPN for Windows 10.
    • Authentication Support

    The authentication features include password management, RADIUS challenge/response, CAPI software, and hardware tokens. P12 certificates, and SecurID.

    • Encryption Tunnel

    The system establishes a VPN tunnel on demand. It also re-arranges connections when roaming. The tunnel can automatically tear down when the user is on the corporate LAN.

    • Connect Options

    There are several connection features, such as Hotspot detection, office mode IP, split tunneling, and automatic fallback to HTTPS.

    Benefits of Check Point Remote Access VPN

    One of the key advantages of Remote Access VPN is that it provides remote workers with a secure way to connect to a corporate network from any device, including their personal devices. The data encryption in transit enables them to securely access the resources they need for their tasks.

    It also provides IT support and technicians with a faster way to troubleshoot software issues. In the case of a ticket, IT doesn’t need to go to the server location to fix the problem but can troubleshoot it remotely.

    A remote secure access VPN is also an affordable alternative for small and medium-sized businesses, without requiring expensive infrastructure.
