URL filtering and application control help us to secure against malicious websites and applications

Pros and Cons

  • "Application control allows the administrator to create granular policies based on users to allow, block, or limit access."
  • "Most of the time, we are struggling when it comes to getting support."

What is our primary use case?

We have the Check Point Firewall as a perimeter gateway and we are using it across seven geolocations. Each location has a cluster. We use it to block high-risk and malicious websites and applications. It enforces compliance policies and regulations at each of the sites.

With this Web gateway, we are secure and it protects our applications or URL with multi-layer architecture security. We are using web security, URL filtering, and antivirus, and we will enable the HTTPS inspection shorty.

How has it helped my organization?

Check Point Web Gateway has improved our inbound and outbound traffic for applications or websites and related queries with features such as URL Filtering. It can control access to websites based on URLs to prevent employees from accessing malicious or inappropriate content and also we enforce bandwidth on streaming services.

These are very good features for us.

We can also now easily identify which users are accessing which URLs, and we can control access based upon them.

Application control allows the administrator to create granular policies based on users to allow, block, or limit access.

What is most valuable?

With Check Point Web Gateway, we have found the following features the most valuable:

  1. URL Filtering
  2. Application Control
  3. Antivirus

URL filtering allows us to control websites based on URL contents and whether any inappropriate content or any malicious content is there.

It allows us to enforce bandwidth restrictions on a specific destination or URL, where some streaming service content is available.

URL filtering management is based on the URL, users, and groups, where access can be either granted or denied.

What needs improvement?

Most of the time, we are struggling when it comes to getting support. Due to this, we have now have taken TAM support and have also taken third-party support for this product. Generally, the support experience is not what we expect from Check Point.  

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been using this solution for more than one year.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Overall, Check Point is a very good solution, although the price and other licensing costs are something that you have to check.

What other advice do I have?

In summary, Check Point Web Security is a very good solution for us. We have been using it for a long time and we use all of the aspects. For security concerns, Check Point Web Security is the best solution with features such as URL filtering, application control, and antivirus.
