It's not very granular.
It does consume a lot of resources on the firewall (you might not want
that to happen).
It's not very customizable. Don't even think of adding custom made signatures.
It cost only a fraction of what would cost you a dedicated IPS (such
as Proventia or Cisco IPS) if you already have Check Point VPN-1.
Easy to implement, you only have to apply the signatures you want
through SmartDashboard.
