Check Point 2200 Appliances- Discontinued

I would say you need someone experienced in Check Point Appliances. You must know the Linux command line as there are a lot of commands that aren't in the guild. I would say 2200 is for a medium-sized company. The appliance we have can't handle a big company and it would be too expensive for a small company.

Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

Check Point Next Generation Firewall is a great solution for larger companies that have the ability to dedicate a large budget towards information security controls. In order to get the best return on investment, however, the company should have a highly functioning information security maturity level and the ability to invest in dedicated training so that all features are utilized effectively. The SmartEvent dashboards are able to provide ongoing data that can track this effectively.

Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

  • Logging -- Logs are clearly displayed with all information about the packet
  • Canned reports -- The reports "out of the box" are pretty nice and give you a lot of detail
  • Rule Configuration -- Defining (basic) rules is easy to do, and understandable

Cons

Check Point 2200 Appliances- Discontinued

  • Cost: very expensive to purchase and maintain.
  • Lack of disk space and memory are the biggest issues we have.
  • Hard/impossible to migrate from physical to virtual appliance.
Randy MacFarland | TrustRadius Reviewer

Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

  • Check Point has a complex range of reporting tools, some of which can take time to learn and be comfortable with.
  • The firewall is solid and needs to have someone with training to manage it which means any little mistake can bring down the network and have you on the phone with Check Point support.
  • They are pricey for some of the hardware and reporting tools.

It all depends on who you get for support. There are a few that know the hardware/software well and some that don't. You can ask for a second level if you can't get your answer or issues resolved. But overall it's good. I would give it a higher score but we have waited for 4-6 hours for a call back on certain issues.

Check Point has a variety of support options that can be used to optimize your investment in the product. Companies with a larger information security and certified checkpoint engineer employee base can benefit from a standard SLA, while companies with a smaller security engineering footprint or more critical implementations can opt for premium, elite or diamond packages that even include the ability to provide on-site engineers for major security incidents. Check Point PRO support also provides the ability to outsource maintenance concerns by automating case creation and follow up when application components fail.

Alternatives Considered

Check Point 2200 Appliances- Discontinued

Both were great products but Check Points seemed to be easier to manage and more stable. While cost was also comparable we chose Check Point because of our enterprise investment with them

At the time when we were evaluating Fortinet, it was not a layer 7, while Check Point did offer this. It appears that since then they have created next-gen firewalls as well. The interface of Check Point is a little easier to use (although the interface tends to use a lot of bright pink colors)

  • Although there are better alternatives out there, Check Point delivers results for the price we paid for the system.
  • Since implementation, we have not have any major issues with the product, minor issues were resolved in a timely fashion.
  • Check Point currently fulfills our need for an outside facing firewall, when our organization grows larger, we will be looking at higher level enterprise solutions.
