Reviews - What do customers think about Check Point™ Next Generation with Application Intelligence Security?
Not comprehensive, not sufficient for 156.210.4 exam Jun 6, 2004
I haven't read through the whole book. However, the parts that I have read ( about a third ) are disappointing. There are the mistakes so common to technical books ( suspect another publisher pressured rush job is to blame, no errata on the website as of this writing, bravo Syngress ) but, to me more damning is the incomplete coverage of Check Point NG/AI itself. Don't be deceived by the big title of this book: Check Point NG/AI, or the enticement for using this as a study tool for the 156-210.4 exam. There is NO coverage of Smart Defense Stormcenter in this book and coverage of Smart Defense in general is not complete. You wont know all the Smart Defense ( including AI ) default options and configuration reading this book. Good luck passing the test using this book as a study tool.
save your money May 5, 2004
the white papers and study tools that come with the book are not available from the syngress website. I have emailed them twice and got no response. i previously purchased the checkpoint ng book and took the ccsa and failed. that book was completely useless. this book isn't as bad, but still too basic. the best study tool is to get a copy of AI from checkpoint and use the 15 day trial as a training / studying tool. don't buy this book.
Confidently recommended as a user-friendly guide Apr 14, 2004
The collaborative work of Chris Tobkin and technical editor Daniel Kligerman, Check Point NG/AI: Next Generation With Application Intelligence Security Administration is an extensive tutorial, user manual, and professional reference to the Check Point NG suite of products. Meticulous instructions and sample computer screens show how to install and configure Check Point VPN-1/FireWall-1 NG AI on Windows, Solaris, Nokia, or SecurePlatform, as well as how to write a security policy, implementing user authentication at one's firewall, configure virtual private networks, secure remote clients, register for a 1-year upgrade, and much more. Check Pont NG/AI is confidently recommended as a user-friendly guide which is written in down-to-earth terms explaining each step of its processes as thoroughly as possible.
Wonderful book! Mar 23, 2004
This is a book for people who are new to the Check Point world. If you are looking for more advanced information (i.e. you're a seasoned Check Point expert) you should look at the Advanced Configuration and Troubleshooting book. This was an excellent book for a new hire to come up to speed easily and quickly on Checkpoint's products. Five Stars! It discusses everything it advertises and does so in a concisce and understandable fashion!
A little too basic. Mar 19, 2004
If you have been working with NG/AI for a while, this book is a little too basic. The web based support for the book, including a study tool for the CCSA exam is not available, despite being advertised in the book. I have emailed Syngress and have not received a response. If I had a chance to evaluate the study tool and the other online resources I might add a few stars.
