Softcat Check Point Highlights

Solutions with Check Point

Software Licensing

Obtaining Check Point licensing can be complicated and requires a wealth of knowledge of its existing programmes and technology to better inform decisions.

Softcat's broad knowledge of software licensing means that we can negotiate licensing arrangements to get the best commercial value for our customers. For organisations that require service provider licensing schemes, we are also able to offer the same support working with these programmes. Through the work we do and the position we hold in Check Point's partner community, we work tirelessly to help improve and simplify the modes of licensing its technology.

Datacentre

Check Point technology was born as an enterprise-grade data centre firewall and is known for its heritage in ultra-fast firewalling in this arena.

As the boundaries between the datacentre and cloud blur, with Check Point technology it is possible to seamlessly stretch the same firewall beyond the on premise datacentre into the cloud to protect both off premise devices and services. Softcat is able to offer full-life project management in support of these solutions including design, installation, testing, commissioning, and support once live.

Managed Services

We provide two levels of Managed Service for all Check Point products based out of our UK operations centre: fully managed and end-to-end responsibility.

Softcat proactively monitors these solutions 24x7, 365 days a year, reconfiguring it as needed and fixing in the event of an issue. We also offer Telephone Support on the same basis, which provides immediate access to our resident experts for on-going guidance or assistance should challenges be encountered. This enables our customers to combine first-class technical support with Softcat's renowned customer service.

Networking & Security

Check Point offers an extensive range of security solutions and serves as an excellent platform for consolidating multiple security services onto a single next-generation firewall appliance. They also offer a next-gen security platform, as well as a threat-protection platform.

Through a host of security measures, customers can combine their protection into a single gateway solution which is easier to manage and cheaper to run. Softcat helps customers tailor these appliances dependent on whatever security posture is required and offer guidance on deployment as physical or virtual gateways based on the setup of customers' existing environments. The knowledge that spans our wider Networking and Security team also means we can help customers decide on measures that are sympathetic to existing investments in security and evaluate the pros and cons when considering the consolidation of solutions.

Professional Services

Softcat has a rich team of technical experts qualified in Check Point technology and we have a rolling programme of training for our team who continually stay up to date with every new development.

The skills of our technical team are comprehensive and cover presales, implementation, support and decommissioning across every single Check Point product.
