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.

Despite the fact that it is a program that monitors work at all times, I have not felt that it violates my privacy and hinders my work or makes it impossible for me to do so. For this and because it looks phenomenal when acting, I give it a 9 and I recommend the final consumer to try it to give an extra barrier to checking their emails in detection of extra malware that their antivirus does not do.

  • [Check Point] ThreatCloud eliminates the need [for] other additional services that may need to be deployed like dedicated IPS, Dedicated Sandbox, DNS solution, etc.
