The user interface on each desktop can be too terse in some places and too verbose in others: for example, at one point one of our test clients showed that we had a security policy violation and that we had to address this issue urgently. Is there a place to click on a button to resolve it? Is there some way to get a message back to our desktop administrator? No and no. There is a log viewer, which no user should ever have to deal with, that shows the most recent security events. This is not for the faint of heart.
Overall, the R80 offers a comprehensive suite of endpoint security tools that can be run on a single agent and managed on a single console. However there is a high level of complexity to the product and some rough edges that Check Point needs to iron out.
