The high level of IT expertise was recognized when using Symantec Cloud Workload Protection as security software when forming a business partnership with a major IT company. In addition, since it is possible to centrally manage the control of USB devices to each employee's PC, it is of great help to the head of the company's security department to be able to handle it with one hand.

  • Occasionally, the security system would detect the introduction of a dedicated tool or system from another company that is generally not available.
  • With a 16GB laptop, the PC will be slow when scanning.
  • While developing, I feel a little inconvenience that the PC freezes when scanning runs behind the scenes.

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 asset Reporting is one more standout feature, + Multi-cloud capabilities Centralized dashboarding is smooth to navigate as compared to other Vendors Syslog handling is much better as compared to some other vendors , Memory and space issues if planned well are less
