Check Point Firewall : A Good Firewall With A Slight Disadvantage
Why is it that Check Point has two separate interfaces for managing application related configuration and OS configuration? Well, the answer is just that: Check Point is a software company.
As I was thinking about some Palo Alto config this week, I realized that Check Point has one major administrative disadvantage to most other firewalls. It's that Gaia and the actual firewall application are not tied together into one "single payne of glass". There are a lot of people who don't like that. Is it enough to deter me? No.
I do, however, think that Check Point should give this some consideration in the future. Combining them into one management window would be a good idea.
