I think the new feature "Accelerated SYN Defender" is a good choice to effectively prevent "SYN Flood Attack" on Check Point Gateways with enabled SecureXL.   A TCP SYN Flood attack occurs when a host, typically with a forged IP address, sends a flood of TCP [SYN] packets. Each of these TCP [SYN] packets is handled as a connection request, which…

Controls the IP blacklist in SecureXL. The blacklist blocks all traffic to and from the specified IP addresses. The blacklist drops occur in SecureXL, which is more efficient than an Access Control Policy to drop the packets. This can be very helpful e.g. with DoS attacks to block an IP on SecureXL level.   For example, the traffic from and to…
