Pros
"I can generate reports for management automatically based on the threats of the last day/week/whatever is needed.""IPS signatures can be set quite granularly depending on your environment. You can filter on performance impact, severity, and confidence which makes sizing and adapting easier.""IPS easily allows follow-up flags on recently updated patterns. If, in rare cases, a false positive does occur, it is quickly detected and an exception can be easily created.""IPS can protect our organization with any old vulnerabilities or if any vulnerability detected minutes ago IPS can protect us as per our configured policy.""This is a very stable product.""The number of the IPS protections is amazing - after the latest update I see more than 11000 in the SmartConsole.""The Check Point IPS module allows me granularity in creating rules.""The reports are well written so that you can understand what type of attack has occurred, the originating IP address, and other details."

Cons
"Having additional reports available would be helpful.""The cost is a bit high but it is worth it.""Sometimes protections are 'aggregated' into a single threat name when you look at the logs. I would prefer to see all protections named individually (for example, right now, 'web enforcement' is a category that contains several signatures).""Occasionally there are glitches and errors like false positives, which would be a nice area of this solution to improve upon.""The only thing they could maybe improve is that we notice right away that the performance decreases when we enable the IPS, especially beyond the CPU and memory usage. If you want to enable the IPS and you have a lot of traffic, it can have an impact. The performance could be improved.""I observed on our management that sometimes IPS does not connect to the threat cloud, we have to check and improve it. Otherwise, all of the features are good.""We have a lot of false positives and the list of IPs are not up to date in terms of their location.""In my opinion, the Check Point software engineers should works on the performance of the blade - when it is activated with the big number of the protections in place, the monitoring shows us the significant increase in the CPU utilization for the gateway appliances - up to 30 percents, even so we are cherry-picking only the profiles that we really needed."

"It integrates well but it takes time.""We need more integration. It would be good if Azure IPS and TippingPoint IPS and other products from Trend Micro like their DBI and IWSVA could talk between each other.""The solution is pretty expensive."

    It's an expensive product. The price could be reduced. Customers need to pay for a license along with the appliance. Licensing is on a yearly basis.
