Check Point Software Technologies

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.

To protect the local network, [FortiGuard] was utilized. To handle communication between networks, FortiWAN was employed. Wi-Fi communication technology, such as FortiAP, was used. As a result of the solution, different business areas now have wireless connectivity. Because it supports simultaneous connections, it can be easily integrated into small and big solutions.

      Check Point Software Technologies

      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.

      Alternatives Considered

      Check Point Software Technologies

      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

      Although prices are not always affordable, it is a very complete choice that may integrate well with other technologies and gives good technical assistance. Fortinet solutions are ideal for businesses with a significant number of users. It is suggested that you acquire their annual maintenance plan.
