    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.

    This system is very useful for companies of few resources and for novice users with small and domestic networks. On the other hand, for a large company where you have a lot of network equipment connected, it's possible that the equipment collapses and does not work well with this service.

    Pros

    Check Point 2200 Appliances- Discontinued

    • Performance
    • Ease of management
    • Functionality
    Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Smoothwall UTM

    • easy to manage by its web platform that allows quick access to system functions
    • allows the administration of the company's network by creating IP navigation permissions to prevent access to unprotected pages
    • this system can be installed on computers with very few resources and even with old equipment just by adapting an additional network card. This is helpful for companies that are starting and do not have much capital to invest but need to protect their systems

    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

    Smoothwall UTM

    • The way to be installed is still a bit difficult and should be more graphic as you are doing all the distributions of linux to make it easier to understand new users

    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.

    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

    Smoothwall is a system that is cheaper than just a free license due to being a Linux distribution. Simplewall is a bit more for robust equipment or large networks.

    • this system has had a positive impact on my company, saving resources, good functioning of the system, a stable application that allows me to control what users see so that they can perform more in the work and prevent them from entering pages that are undeveloped and that will take time away from their job
