Check Point versatility
Check Point’s strength is in the fact that you can customize it to your needs. They’re not intended to be as plug-and-play as some others. These are devices you build around and customize into your environment. But it’s surprisingly easy to do. Of course, you can use the defaults if you like. If you decide to simply use the default setting, you can be up and running in just a minute or two. However, if you need to tune the system to do something just for your environment, you can find a way to do it with the Checkpoint. This granularity also gives you better visibility into your environment that many other vendors.
The downside to plug-and-play firewalls is that sometimes they are less configurable. And it really just comes down to what your organization needs. With Check Point, you have flexibility to get what you want. However, your needs may be served perfectly well with a device that just powers up and goes to town.
