Here are some highlights from the week's activity on CheckMates:

 

TechTalk Special Edition: IoTroop -- A New IoT Storm is Coming! 

While we typically aim to do TechTalks on a monthly basis, sometimes we will do one more frequently, particularly for newsworthy items. That's what we did with this TechTalk on IoTroop! View the recording of this talk and the slides using the above link.

 

Exclude CPM Traffic from Implied Rules 

Yes, there's a way to do it, but when VPNs are involved, you probably don't want to do that. Details in the thread.

 

Reverse Proxy Feature of MOB (R80.10) 

There is a new feature added to R80.10 and recent R77.30 Jumbo Hotfix called Reverse Proxy. This thread talks about how it interacts with Mobile Access Blade and other web portals on the Security Gateway.

 

User based access rules in firewall 

This thread discusses how Identity Awareness features in Check Point Security Gateways operates, as well as the new Identity Collector feature added to R80.10.
