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.

Trustwave Firewall

Currently, it has been updated and is now called Trustwave Managed UTM service, which shows that the company listens to its customers since they added many features recommended by users.
Certainly, this older version is no longer recommended for any scenario where it must be connected to the internet.

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

Trustwave Firewall

  • It is very reliable in environments without permanent refrigeration.
  • The rules that it handles are static, but it has some mechanisms for detecting instruments, which for the current users are very good.
  • It maintains VPNs in a stable way and its configuration is similar and compatible with other brands.

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

Trustwave Firewall

  • There is no option to include rules type functions, which would be very useful to save configuration time.
  • The support is not as helpful as I would like, nor its documentation.
  • A friendly graphical interface would be very well accepted.

Based on 1 answer
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.

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)

Trustwave Firewall

When Cisco was more concerned about the network, Trustwave did it for security. But now many things have changed and the competition is really hard for everyone.

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.
Ramesh Ramrattan | TrustRadius Reviewer

Trustwave Firewall

  • It is a robust equipment, therefore it is still in use, in a highly isolated environment.
  • I think that the investment was recovered from the first moment, from its time when it was very advanced.
