I have worked for several years with the Check Point platform (NGFW) and it is by far more stable in hardware and software.

It is a very friendly platform and easy to configure. It is true that it is a bit expensive according to the required blades but it is a platform that is worth having as security in a corporate.

We had this same discussion recently with my organization. It came down to the security of the platform. 


Fortinet has had a number of breaches over the last 2 years and this was a key factor in our decision. 


The challenge with Check Point will be the transition from our existing firewall and taking advantage of the various features across our organization.
