The ALBs must be configured to send an XFF header.
Likewise, XFF support must be enabled on the Security Gateway.
This requires the use of Identity Awareness and Application Control blades.
Support must be enabled in the Check Point Security Gateway object > 'Identity Awareness' pane > section 'Proxy Support for Application Control and URL Filtering Blades'.
