Bronze Award:

Check Point Integrity

Known mainly for its industry-standard VPNs and firewalls, Check Point has made a big move into the endpoint security market of late, leveraging its acquisition of Zone Labs. The company's Integrity product, now known as Check Point Endpoint Security, snagged bronze.

Endpoint Security's main strength lies in the fact that it is a single desktop agent that comprises a wide variety of security features, including a full-function firewall, antivirus, antispyware, network access control and remote access. Its NAC capabilities include the standard functions such as preconnection client inspection, remediation and quarantining. But it also gives administrators the ability to use the Check Point VPN-1 product to set up NAC enforcement on the network-segment level.

Endpoint Security also supports 802.1x authentication and VPN gateways from third-party vendors, including Cisco and Nortel.

Readers ranked Endpoint Security highly for its policy-based network access control and its enforcement options. Users also gave the offering a strong rating for its logging and reporting and its integration with customers' infrastructures.
