Check Point Software Technologies
If you have the Check Point environment and want to utilize the Checkpoint environment, you should use the [Check Point] ThreatCloud. Without [Check Point] ThreatCloud, there’s no way to stop the 0days or APTs. However, [Check Point] ThreatCloud relies on the Checkpoint infrastructure to be used and integrated. If you have other firewall and/or endpoint vendors, [Check Point] ThreatCloud is not the best service to be used. Checkpoint also offers 24x7 threat cloud-managed security services to [...] organizations. Threat cloud-managed security services leverage the threat cloud decreasing the detection time and false-positive rates via increasing protection rates.

ElecticIQ has an architecture where it usually needs decent computing power within the organisation. The central console along with the ELK servers and PostgreSQL sever needs their own space in a distributed setup. This could be a little too expensive for small-scale organisations. But for the organizations having mid to large-scale networks. EIQ is a decent solution to serve the purpose.

  • Misses on a global search bar which can directly gives out the result like VirusTotal.
  • The GUI could be more friendlier. Too many filters and graphs may overwhlem the user sometimes.
  • The ElasticSearch(searching for IOC in the in-house EIQ database) is a little slow compared to its counterparts.

As Checkpoint next generation firewalls were already implemented in the network, ThreatCloud was easy to implement and had better features and reputation than competitors

The most important feature of EclecticIQ which gives it an edge compared to other TIPs is that it performs segregation of IOCs based on the relevance of it and the links that IOCs might have which other adversaries. The graphical format mapping where the user can easily figure out how the IOCs have connections to different binaries is another advantage. One can set the half-life time for an IOC which will reduce the confidence score as per one's need.
