Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

Check Point Next Generation Firewall is a great solution for larger companies that have the ability to dedicate a large budget towards information security controls. In order to get the best return on investment, however, the company should have a highly functioning information security maturity level and the ability to invest in dedicated training so that all features are utilized effectively. The SmartEvent dashboards are able to provide ongoing data that can track this effectively.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • Very stable and cost-effective.
  • Better integration with leading database vendors would be great; this would address features that are missing like x-windows support and concurrent secure file transfers.
  • Patching is relatively fast and not as frequent as other vendors (with no impact on adherence to security best practices).
  • Very easy to install and low storage footprint.

Pros

Cons

Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

  • Check Point has a complex range of reporting tools, some of which can take time to learn and be comfortable with.
  • The firewall is solid and needs to have someone with training to manage it which means any little mistake can bring down the network and have you on the phone with Check Point support.
  • They are pricey for some of the hardware and reporting tools.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • X-windows support could be more robust.
  • Virtual shell adaptation could be improved.
  • Greater concurrency for large secure transmissions would be a great add-on.

Check Point has a variety of support options that can be used to optimize your investment in the product. Companies with a larger information security and certified checkpoint engineer employee base can benefit from a standard SLA, while companies with a smaller security engineering footprint or more critical implementations can opt for premium, elite or diamond packages that even include the ability to provide on-site engineers for major security incidents. Check Point PRO support also provides the ability to outsource maintenance concerns by automating case creation and follow up when application components fail.

Based on 1 answer
  • Support organization is active, so is online community boards.
  • There have been no significant issues that haven't been able to be quickly addressed by either online documentation or F-Secure support.
  • Easy to use diagnostic tools and information gathering, make problem analysis fast.
  • Phone support can be different due to time zone differences, but this has not been a major issue.

Alternatives Considered

Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

At the time when we were evaluating Fortinet, it was not a layer 7, while Check Point did offer this. It appears that since then they have created next-gen firewalls as well. The interface of Check Point is a little easier to use (although the interface tends to use a lot of bright pink colors)

F-Secure Business Suite

  • This suite of software does not have any mentionable competition, in my opinion.
  • It adheres to current security protocols, in-frequent patching requirements, low IT overhead, and on-going support are exemplary.
  • Robust documentation and online community boards help keep support and maintenance transparent and efficient.
  • Legacy support for older OS' is quite useful.
  • Simplicity when onboarding into custom hybrid network configurations is also vital.

Return on Investment

Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

  • Although there are better alternatives out there, Check Point delivers results for the price we paid for the system.
  • Since implementation, we have not have any major issues with the product, minor issues were resolved in a timely fashion.
  • Check Point currently fulfills our need for an outside facing firewall, when our organization grows larger, we will be looking at higher level enterprise solutions.

F-Secure Business Suite

  • Very low cost.
  • Low IT overhead (very low network bandwidth, CPU, storage utilization).
  • Supported by all major hardware vendors.
