This was an interesting article. According to CIO Insight, out of 40 technology companies (security and non-security) Check Point finished 3rd behind EMC and Google for “value and reliability.” In fact out of the four categories listed, Check Point finished 1st in “Meets expectations for increasing revenues” and “Solves the business problem paid to solve.”
This is very impressive considering Check Point’s size compared to the giants on the list like Cisco, Google, McAfee, and Symantec. Some interesting quotes from the article:
“Users react to what they see as needless bundling, unnecessary added features and harder-to-use products. As a result, they turn to smaller, more focused vendors like 3Com’s TippingPoint, Check Point…”
“Another winner, Check Point Software, is valuable to customers for an unrivaled ability to address their business issues.”
This speaks volumes about Check Point’s continued ability to beat the “big boys” by being more nimble and focused with its offerings.
