"It keeps us all accountable and ensures secure internet connections while we all work remotely.""It helps to quickly get access to the pages I need.""Distributing the agent was very simple, allowing us to enforce security posture on our devices (i.e. S1, Disk-encryption, etc.).""Perimeter 81 is very pretty.""The feature that I have found to be most valuable is the reputation that the company has regarding privacy. Nowadays, this is critical, especially when you do all of your work online.""The benefits are really built into the underlying protocol, however, Perimeter81 makes these available in a user-friendly way.""The solution provides us with an easy way to configure and join the VPN with Perimeter 81.""Perimeter 81 has increased my security and privacy while maintaining solid internet performance."

More Perimeter 81 Pros →

"We would like to implement HTML5 (clientless access) in the product without installing any additional software.""In an environment with multiple cluster checkpoints, the global properties common to all clusters in some cases give problems.""The ability to allow split-tunneling while still following our corporate policy needs to be on the table.""They could improve the support they provide for Check Point.""The non-standard setup is quite complex as you have to do changes via GUI and CLI.""Compliance Check on Check Point should be improved by having more configurable conditions to support multi-platforms and adding more granularity.""Some configurations, like idle timeout (the requirement came from multiple users), are not possible to configure directly from the Check Point management server.""The fully-featured security module is only supported on Windows and Mac systems, which means that organizations with Linux will face issues providing secure access."

More Check Point Remote Access VPN Cons →

"In order to have to bypass the login using the website, a good feature for Perimeter 81 to have is a login instance in the Perimeter 81 application. I'm using a Mac and we don't have that functionality.""The overall UI could be improved and updated to bring a simpler feel to the application.""I'd love to learn more about all of the features. Maybe a monthly spotlight of features or having a banner that explains more ways certain features could be used would be helpful.""I have found that the log-in/out process takes quite some time.""What would be useful would be a notification/warning that a session is due to timeout after exceeding the default connection limit.""Currently, I am not able to define a different country or location, which can result in negative experiences as the tool is being recognized by websites and this can make it difficult to access them or force me to disable the program temporarily.""I don't know if it is technically feasible, however, if the Desktop App could be used as a Web App or a Chrome Extension it would be very nice.""If I were to be nitpicky, I would ask that Perimeter 81 offer the option for us to change the color of the graphical user interface, like maybe pink or green or so on."

    Also Known As
    Check Point Remote Access VPN, Check Point Endpoint Remote Access VPN
    Learn More

    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.

    Reviews from Real Users

    A Global IT Network and Security Service Senior Specialist at a manufacturing company who uses Check Point Remote Access VPN says, "I found the MEP feature the most valuable. This has improved users' latency allowing the users to connect to the nearest Azure Check Point VM."

    Manuel B., a Voice and data infrastructure specialist at a tech services company, says that "The IPSec VPN, Mobile Access, and Identity Awareness are three of the blades with which we have been working with since the pandemic. This has given us great mobility, making our network more dynamic."
