iPhones and Androids being blocked read access on E81 with Media Encryption blade only on Windows 10

Is this expected behavior? I thought any Windows Portable Device would still have the ability to read from.

Check Point Endpoint Security versions / release schedules

Hi All, I had some feedback, saying there’s a lack of understanding of the Endpoint release plans, so let me explain… (Yes, we’re historically not the best as marketing and communications!) First a little history lesson: For those that remember, Endpoint installs were released on the same sort of frequency as Network releases. You can see all releases documented here: sk117536. However, around 2017, with the rise of Ransomware, R&D appreciated very much, that the world changed too fast, and to ensure our agent could proactively maintain its ability to prevent, a monthly release was necessary. This allowed us to add features, and always aim to keep ahead of the bad guys (with new features, like Anti Ransomware, Behavioural Guard, Anti Exploit, PowerShell malware based prevention etc.) – this is our DNA – to give the best security. This change definitely gave us more features, but, with anything, with a much shorter time to General Availability, and more “moving parts”, the opportunity for bugs to be introduced increased. As part of an overlay team in CHKP, our team provides feedback, every 6 months to R&D in Tel Aviv, and they do listen! We said - Customers felt they had to upgrade, and felt there were too many versions to maintain. What we do now: Today, we now, where possible, let you upgrade with no reboot, definitely reducing end user impact. Their aim is to have Endpoint upgrade, just like Chrome does – silently if you want to (no, I have no idea what Chrome version I am running). We also got R&D to provide 2 “channels” – recommended, and latest – see the info in the SK above. E80.96 is the current recommended version. However, there are numerous fixes (but also new features, which always carry the potential for bugs) in E81.10, and E81.20. Such as the ability to support newer Windows versions. So, we can see E81.10, and then E81.20 are the latest versions. R&D release 2 “latest” versions, and then a new recommended version. So, as an example, E81.30 (the next expected recommended version) is just E81.20, with 10+ significant fixes included (the number of fixes can change). If you prefer to stick to fewer updates, but less features, then the recommended updates channel is the one for you. I hope this helps!

Endpoint Security VPN build 986000724 is already installed on this computer.

Downloaded link from my institution's download page and obtained Endpoint_Security_VPN.dmg on my Mac desktop running OS Mojave 10.14.3. I believe this is version 80.89 but can't be sure. My instructions said to run the uninstaller to remove the old version. This I did several times. Then I tried installing and the system said version 986000724 is already installed on this machine, file one, Screen Shot 2019-03-13 at 10.29.42 PM.png. I looked everywhere on my Mac, even looking at invisible files (I have administrator access), and cannot find any files that include Checkpoint or Endpoint in any directory. I found the toolbar still had the icon on it, and when I doubleclicked to launch it, it got a ? and so I figured it was gone, and I dragged it off the toolbar to vanish it. Even after multiple reboots and multiple downloading at the download page, I still cannot uninstall anything, and now cannot install the new version. My IT department does not support Macs, and cannot help me further. Checkpoint cannot help me either because they say I do not have a support contract. Someone please help me.

WSL loses network connectivity after installation of EPS 81.10

After a recent upgrade to Windows 10 Ver 1903 (Build 18362.267) I have had to upgrade EPS to 81.10 which seems to function well apart from a rather annoying issue.Ever since installing, all network connectivity from any Linux distribution running on Windows Subsystem for Linux fails and hangs the WSL terminal. I have tested this with multiple distros (Ubuntu/Suse/Pengwin) and they all suffer the same issue so I imagine WSL itself isn't playing well with EPS 81.10. As soon as I remove EPS, it all starts functioning correctly again.Has anyone else come across this issue?Note: I have disabled the EPS firewall via policy in case it was interfering somehow but it makes no difference.

Endpoint client policy updates

Hi, I have a customer who has a central NPM/EPM server (R77.30) to manage their firewall and endpoint estate. They have an additional Endpoint Security Policy Server which faces the internet for clients in the field, and this works okay.I was wondering if by putting a reverse proxy (e.g. NGINX) in front of the private EPM, we could in R80 replace the functionality of the current policy server, to save on support costs? ThanksJamie

VPN Connection on Azure VM

Hello,I have an Azure VM which I connect to via RDP. From there I need to use Check Point Endpoint Security to connect to a third party network in order to collect some data. However, once I connect the VPN, my RDP connection gets disconnected and as it detects I've disconnected it also kills the VPN connection.What do I need to configure in order for my VPN connection not to disconnect my RDP session? I've tried setting the default gateway on the virtual adapter to the same one my VM uses but that makes no difference. Firewall rules are set to allow Checkpoint through... admittedly my network skills aren't the best but I can't help feeling there is something simple I'm not doing here, would anybody be able to advise?Many thanks,Danny

Upgrade SmartEndPoint from R77.30.03 to R80.20 with migration

Hi guys, Anyone has already tried to upgrade SmartEndPoint server from R77.30.03 to R80.20?In the R80.20 Install & Upgrade guide is stated :"These instructions equally apply to:• Security Management Server• Endpoint Security Management Server"!Is that true?Anyone that has upgraded a SmartEndPoint before has tips or suggestions about it? I'm concern about for example:1. The FDE feature where the EndPoint keys are stored on SmartEndPoint Server.. what happens to these keys? They will be export via migrate export?2. Software deployment rules are based on a specific client package that will be pushed to EndPoint clients that will match that rule.. When you do an upgrade with migration the current packages will be exported via migrate export or I have to upload them manually on the new machine? Let me know guys.. It will be very very appreciated 😆
