I am Dorit Dor, VP of Products for Check Point, Ask Me Anything!

We had a lot of great questions asked as part of this event! If you want to see where we're taking the Check Point Infinity vision next, you definitely want to read through this post along with the comments. Follow questions to things mentioned here should be posted on CheckMates in the appropriate space. 

 

Filter option in R80.10 show-access-rulebase API 

This particular API call is case-sensitive. Action != action, it turns out.

 

How to monitor bandwidth limit for application control 

Seems reasonable to want to see how close you are to the limit you've configured for a specific rule, right? Here's how to do that.

 

What is the impact (performance wise and other aspects) of setting Check Point as an MTA so as to utilize Threat Extraction?

Threat Extraction doesn't add much. That said, it depends on the configuration...

Short answer: you don't manage over a VPN. There's good reasons for not doing this, which are described in the thread.
