The visibility, reporting, and the ability to stop or prevent malicious or undesired applications from being installed are the most valuable features.
Check Point Application Control offers a wide selection of applications, and even within those, you can configure uploads, downloads, et cetera, on a very granular level.
This is a basic solution; the policy screen is okay, and it's easy to configure.
We also like the Change Control. We can control how things get executed. It has signatures for different kinds of protocols.
The most valuable feature is the category control.
It does the job of what it says it does. We set it to what we want it to block and then it blocks it.
Overall, the solution does a pretty good job at web filtering.
Content filtering is really easy to use. We have rules for content filtering. One of the rules that we have is that if it is not an SSL site, it should block the site. It scans, and if it finds a bad site, it is not going to allow it. We can also block based on what the company wants us to block. If the company wants us to block porn, we'll block porn. If the company wants to block social media, we're going to block social media.
