What do you like most about Check Point IPS?
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with the community!
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.
There's an automatic update after every 2 hours which makes sure that the database is up to date and providing zero-day vulnerability protection.
The Check Point IPS module allows me granularity in creating rules.
I can easily monitor all of our connected devices and I get instant notification of reconnections and new connections, which removes some of the monitoring burden.
It protects against specific known exploits but also, with SandBlast integration, it is able to protect against unknown or zero-day attacks at the perimeter level.
This is a very stable product.
The most valuable feature is that it protects us against hundreds of different attack vectors, like ransomware. The protection is always being triggered. People try to access websites that are categorized as malware, so when the users do a DNS request for the IP of those malware websites, the IPS Blade replaces the real IP of the website that is malware with a bogus IP. The user gets an IP that doesn't exist and when he tries to access, it won't work.
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.
The number of the IPS protections is amazing - after the latest update I see more than 11000 in the SmartConsole.
The reports are well written so that you can understand what type of attack has occurred, the originating IP address, and other details.
The solution's IPS functionality and firewall functionality are the solution's most valuable features.
We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
