Check Point Harmony Browse is particularly well suited for protecting against the various zero-day attack vectors, which is what it is designed to do. It offers very good protection against users visiting phishing sites, malware sites, downloading or opening ransomware, and just generally providing the safety net required in a corporate environment against users visiting potentially harmful websites.

Alternatives Considered
Check Point Software Technologies
We were already in the Check Point ecosystem and therefore did not look into alternatives like CrowdStrike or Kaspersky. Looking back, Check Point stacks up very nicely with the competitors on the market in terms of features, but I can't speak to actual real work performance having not used the others.
