The support team needs to be improved especially in their response and awareness about recent bugs in their solution. For example, sometimes they are not aware about how to integrate specific vendors like Microsoft Azure and they still don't have answers to it until now.

Alternatives Considered

Check Point Quantum Smart-1

Far exceeds any testing we were able to think of when testing.

Skybox Security

We have used FireMon Security initially but were never satisfied as FireMon was less efficient than Skybox. Skybox is a good substitute for any of such software. At a very reasonable cost, it provides an Outstanding vulnerability control feature along with network mapping and reporting. All these features are less likely to be found in any other software of this kind altogether.

Return on Investment

Check Point Quantum Smart-1

  • Hardware is very solid so time for maintenance is extremely limited.
  • Patching is limited due to the strength of the code releases also time for maintenance is extremely limited
  • Annually reoccurring costs for licenses can be expensive

Skybox Security

  • Reduces cost in terms of time and money to spend in remediation activity.
  • Improve the network topology and then it's possibile to reduce cost of network/security appliances where they're not necessary.
  • The cost of the solution is not trivial when the number of network appliances is big.
