It is essential to validate the costs before implementation and also to test before setting up the environment in production.

Pricing for this solution is negotiable and I'm happy with our pricing. I suggest negotiating either at the end of their fiscal year or at the end of every quarter. At the end of the quarter, they have an incentive to lower the prices to sell as many units as possible in order to meet their end-of-quarter quota.

With Check Point, the IPS license could be bundled with the firewall product and so the license cost is not huge. It does take time to get familiar with the UI and understand the "workflow" that Check Point has in mind when designing the solution. A good understanding of this would allow an easier adoption.

It seems, as with other services of this nature, opting-in on the bundled licensing is the best bet. I'd suggest looking at the Infinity Plan.

I'd advise users to bundle the things they want; so they get a cheaper offer.

Check Point IPS license is a must-have, and users need to make sure the database gets updated on daily basis after every 2 hours as per the defined configuration (which helps to get maximum protection). The configuration is very simple and effective if you refer to the configuration guide properly.

The module has a considerable cost but you can save by purchasing a package with several modules instead of making a single purchase. The implementation has a high initial and management cost.

Enabling IPS does not require any additional license purchase from OEM, as it comes by default with the NGFW bundle. This blade/module can be enabled based on the requirement and can be pushed to the security gateway.

Compared to Firepower, the pricing for IPS is competitive. It's in line with Firepower and I think it's even a bit cheaper. Pricing is competitive. Licensing is per-device. When we renew the firewall content, we buy the IPS license for each firewall where we want to deploy it.

The overall cost of the solution is really high. You should properly scale the setup you are planning to purchase. The licensing model is simple, but some of the software blades are not included into the default bundles and should be purchased separately - pay attention to that.

This is an expensive solution. I am not exactly sure of the pricing because we have a package deal that has the licenses included. I think that the price of support is around $40,000 USD or $50,000 USD per year. How it works is that we license a pair of virtual CPU cores, as well as the firewall, and then the IPS is included along with the antivirus and additional products.

We are using Check Point IPS for securing our internal networks and our website, as well as all of the traffic that goes through us. The traffic is analyzed by the IPS, which checks for things like malicious files and different attack patterns. We are using the virtualized version.

Our company works in developing and delivering online gambling platforms. The Check Point NGFWs are the core security solution we use to protect our DataCenter environment located in Asia (Taiwan). The environment has about ~50 physical servers as virtualization hosts, and we have two HA Clusters consist of 2x5400 hardware appliances, managed by an OpenServer Security Management Server on a Virtual Machine (KVM), all running on R80.10 with the latest JumboHotfix. The Clusters serve as the firewalls for both inter-VLAN and external traffic. We have the Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) blade activated on both Check Point HA Clusters as the counter-measure against advanced threats and malware. The IPS blade mostly used for ingress traffic from the Internet to the DMZ VLAN.
