It is important to have a Check Point provider or partner to help us with the costs since they are not public.

It is important to always implement demo environments to test first before doing it in production so that we can have more experience when migrating it to the most important environment. The cost is accessible.

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.

The cost is affordable. It competes with other technologies and the installation is easy to implement.

I'd advise users to check a lot with a partner or vendor who can provide you with enough information about the products to fit your needs.

The license was pretty reasonable. I don't have a figure right now, but I think it was somewhere between $10 and $30 per user.

In our case, the cost is indirect and is directly passed on by the mobile services operator to the mobile voice services/terminals of the corporate network. We do not have data on the detailed cost of the service.

We had a very positive experience with this. The cost is the amount of devices times the number of licensing and the setup fees. We were up and running quickly. I do highly recommend leveraging a demo of this product. It really shows the depth of the product and the value-add to the customer.

Check Point provides a separate license in cases where organizations want to use this only on mobile devices, or laptops/desktops. Check Point Total includes both mobile devices and endpoints. Setup can be done on the existing security gateway or it can be done on a dedicated security gateway where there are a large number of users. Checkpoint provides five user licenses by default.

Regarding the cost of licenses, each device consumes one, even if it has both professional and personal profiles.

From a user's perspective, of course, it is always better when it is cheaper in price. That said, it is a fair price. it's not overly expensive. We find it very reasonable. After all, when you get hit with ransomware or some other malicious program, it can be extremely expensive and comes at a great cost to the company.

We got a pretty good deal and the price is pretty decent compared to some of the other solutions. Check Point has always been a little high on price. People will need to have a good relationship with their territory manager or their account manager and will need to negotiate a better price. Compared to some of its competitors who are very good in marketing, Check Point has been very lacking. Their price sometimes tends to be notably higher than its competitors, but the quality of the solution is the difference. However, people mostly go after the marketing. They see that side of it. For this solution there is just the support. There were no other costs added on to it. It is a straightforward license: unit price by X number of units and the support that goes along with it. There wasn't any other cost for us.

Choosing the correct set of licenses is essential because, without the additional software blade licenses, the Check Point gateways are just a stateful firewall.

As we didn't really compare it with competitors, we bought it as part of our Infinity and so it was included with our other network security. It was basically no cost to us because we were already planning on using the other features of it. It was just an added part of that contract, but I don't have much input beyond that. We didn't compare to anyone else or anything like that.

Check Point has a very high price for certain mid-size installations and some of their competitors have much lower prices. I would say that for big installations Check Point is okay for pricing but for a small-medium installation it's too expensive. Pricing is something else that they could improve.

The interface could be more user-friendly. They should improve the look and feel. I would like to see more meaningful logs in the next release. The way the system is now, it's pretty expensive.

For SandBlast Mobile, the only thing that is lacking is that it wasn't available for all types of users. However, Check Point has since fixed this, with ZoneAlarm. With ZoneAlarm for mobile, it will also direct from the Google Apps, or the Play Store. And then they get to pay for it too. I think it's a very nice solution. In terms of features, I believe they really have everything covered. I can't say if anything needs to be added. In this part of the world, we're still trying to bring ourselves up to speed in terms of what works best.
