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.

Sophos XG Firewall

This is the best product for small-size organizations with a low budget that want advanced and deep-level security features. Sandboxing and advanced malware protection are the most valuable features available on Sophos devices. Other features like applications and web content make your organization more secure, and you can put more restrictions on users.

Pros

Check Point Quantum Security Gateway

  • Logging -- Logs are clearly displayed with all information about the packet
  • Canned reports -- The reports "out of the box" are pretty nice and give you a lot of detail
  • Rule Configuration -- Defining (basic) rules is easy to do, and understandable

Sophos XG Firewall

  • You can scan every packet deeply through sandboxing.
  • Control the user traffic through content filtering.
  • Put the restrictions on user web traffic through web filtering.
  • Control any type of malware through anti virus.

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.
Ramesh Ramrattan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Sophos XG Firewall

  • If using Endpoint security and the Firewall it would be nice to have an easier back and forth between the portals rather than have two separate tabs open. Especially if using more than one in multiple locations.
  • If dealing with different revisions options are moved around and sometimes in places that doesn't normally seem like they should be there.

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.

Honestly we didn't get the premium support from them, but our partner has been supportive. Online forums are also a good place to learn things from.

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)

Sophos XG Firewall

Sophos XG Firewall provides easy integration with Active directory & LDAP Servers so that we can implement single sign on (SSO) for users. Also the content filtering & inspection feature protect us from bad actors.

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.

Sophos XG Firewall

  • True UTM device.
  • Very Active customer help for any help.
  • Easy license and cost effective.
  • Should [do] more work on logging and reporting.
