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.

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

Secure work environment with this platform has enhanced effective workflow infrastructure. The cost of deployment and configuration capabilities with other security applications lead to main decision of acquiring this tool. The security control dashboards gives reliable performance reports that leads to quick decision-making when there are malware attacks. It gives lifecycle report for most work processes and threat intelligence information that enables my team to track workloads effectively.

Return on Investment
Check Point Software Technologies
  • High score rates [are] seen on breach systems after deploying systems integrated with [Check Point] ThreatCloud
  • Catch rates are very high compared to other vendors
  • One missing thing is the detection for localized URLs and IPs
  • Purchasing within the 3-year perspective is cheap compared to other solutions; ROI is generally six months
  • [Check Point] ThreatCloud eliminates the need [for] other additional services that may need to be deployed like dedicated IPS, Dedicated Sandbox, DNS solution, etc.
