Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management

Scenarios most suited -1) All the Cyber Security focused development environments2) Definitely a must for Financial Clients since it deals with live money transactions - Hence it is imperative to keep the Network and tech asset environment secure, and compliant to standards3) IAM is another area where it plays an IMP part - For eg one of our healthcare clients where they wanted to restrict access4) Dashboards are also great, we can share the results to GISO/CISO level folks - Custom dashboard feature

Forcepoint Web Security

It is very well suited for [an] environment where the internet usage is high and most business applications are either cloud or internet-based e.g. SAP, GST, E-way billings, etc. It is not appropriate for organizations where the hardware is not being updated for a long time as it requires good hardware to run it without any hassle.

Cons

Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management

  • There is not a comprehensive amount of documentation on how to set up best practices.
  • Our initial set up assistance from Proofpoint approved vendor did not go smoothly.
  • The ability to add more customized widgets in the main overview screen would be helpful.

Forcepoint Web Security

  • The user access logs contain a lot of useless information. I understand this is very hard to tackle as I've seen this across any product that logs web activity.
  • I would like to see more customization options of website block pages.

It is very stable, the organisation has "locked in" the product and has no plans to change or try another product. We have already renewed our 2019-2020 licenses. It is user friendly and people catch on easily when they first use it. The only downtime is when we install Microsoft updates!It has excellent reporting which help in determining how the organisation's Internet is used and also during both internal and external IT audits.

Despite the intimidating Linux CLI when you use the appliance for troubleshooting, the web security usability compensates as most of the Administration of the system is done there. It is GUI based and has an easy to use UI where one can navigate around rather easily like getting reports, checking alerts, looking the whole setup under deployment to check if all services are running in one place though there are other parts to the system.

The is a quick first response to acknowledge your issue and the Engineers never take more than two hours to fix an issue and we hardly get issues looking at the fact that the system is pretty stable. There is also a robust Knowledge Base in the site for known problems.

Alternatives Considered

Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management

First and foremost reason of our client selecting CheckPoint CloudGuard Posture Management / Dome9 was because they already had CheckPoint Firewalls which are in active use e.g. R75.40 and R82.x products. Customization Vs these other Vendors is another great assetReporting is one more standout feature, + Multi-cloud capabilities Centralized dashboarding is smooth to navigate as compared to other VendorsSyslog handling is much better as compared to some other vendors , Memory and space issues if planned well are less

To be honest, once using Forcepoint for our Web Security, I have not wanted to look anywhere else. The dashboard gives me quick insight of threats, productivity, and bandwidth usage. Again, this is a layer in my security and it fills many holes. I feel safe and I do like I can just let it do its thing

Return on Investment

Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management

  • For production environments it is worth the investment.
  • Getting to know how many assets you have helps with cost savings.
Oscar Martinez | TrustRadius Reviewer

Forcepoint Web Security

  • The design of Forcepoint Web Security [in my opinion] does not lend itself well to remote workers. This was obvious [to me] before the pandemic and was only more evident with the pandemic.
  • Quality control of Forcepoint Web Security software requires staff time and resources to administer and upgrade. It is refreshing to see the administration [needs to be] reduced with a cloud-based solution.
