CPX 2016 quick summary

Check Point Experience was a bit boring two last years for my personal taste. Finally we have had a good one this year.

In my list there are three interesting things:




R80 is released as management only, as you know. GW part will come later this year, if Check Point keeps its promise. Meanwhile you can start getting used to the new UI of SmartConsole as a single application, benefit from multiple admin access to the same database and start working on new MGMT API that is much more powerful than old and almost obsolete OPSEC.

Sandboxing and threat detection solutions are expanding. Sandblast agent for both PCs and mobile devices looks very promising.

And to have more firepower on your security devices, you may want to start looking into new fully refreshed line of Check Point appliances.

new book is the first of a series and has a working title of “New
Frontier: Check Point R80”. It is a collaborative effort featuring
four recognised professionals with quite a lot of Check Point
expertise (in alphabetic order):
