Checkpoint Firewall for Home Lab

Hi everyone,

Apologies i have put this post in the wrong place, i am completely new to checkpoint firewalls and have experience with Fortinet and Cisco, looking around at Jobs quite allot of employers i see now require experience with checkpoint firewalls.

What would be a good budget firewall to purchase to use a in a Lab at home? my lab is quite straight forward at the moment it has a few Cisco switches and a  Cisco Router, maybe I could throw a checkpoint firewall in and get it working to gain some experience.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Endpoint was definitely the wrong space for this question.

You really don't need specific hardware, if you can run VMs in VMware or similar, you can get all the Check Point experience you need.
Hardware in particular was recently discussed here: https://community.checkpoint.com/t5/Enterprise-Appliances-and-Gaia/Hardware-for-home-lab/m-p/60052
You may also want to head over to our Check Point for Beginners series, which will get you started as well: https://community.checkpoint.com/t5/Check-Point-for-Beginners-CP4B/bg-p/check-point-for-beginners
