What do you like most about Check Point Application Control?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
The most important feature, in my opinion, regarding Check Point Application Control is the granularity and the great variety of applications and sub-applications recognized.
Check Point enables us to save internet bandwidth. The administration offers good guidance. We don't want the employees to access social networking on work computers because it will distract them from their jobs, so we can block that. It also helps us to implement changes very quickly and to get people to be more focused on the job.
The overall security of the environment has been greatly improved by the Check Point NGFWs. Before implementing the Check Point solutions, we relied on the Cisco ACLs and Zone-Based firewalls configured on the switches and routers, which in fact a simple stateful firewall, and currently appear to be not an efficient solution for protecting from the advanced threats.
With Check Point Application Control we can say we improved our legacy and have made them more secure. Now we are able to allow specific applications on respective service and we are allowed those respective services only.
This solution is stable and we have not had any issues.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
