Check Point still uses the old names today. I teached my colleagues on the new terminology, MDS, DMS, MDSM, etc. Even today Check Point support references to CMAs and other names while most new people are not used to these old names anymore.

Unfortunately we haven't completed educating all our employees and technology partners on the new naming.

Starting with R80:

1. CMA is now named Domain

2. Provider-1 or MDSM is now named Multi-Domain Management Server

3. SMS is now named Security Management Server (or: not-multi-domain)

4. No more initials with the exception of "MDS Domain" when logging in with SmartConsole and selecting between domains.

This was us extending our intuitiveness of the user interface to the scope of product names.

Provider-1 is an old name for MDSM - Multi-Domain Security Management product family.

MDS stands for Muti-Domain Server. MDS is one of the flavors when installing MDSM. There is also MLM - multi domain log server.

Similar question in 2030 year:

Is SmartDashboard the same like SmartConsole ?

Maybe someone can write some article with all shortcuts related to Check Point what we know so far?

Kind regards,

I think you forgot to add that the flavors of MDS/MDSM vary - all depends if you're using Single-Domain or Multi-Domain envoronment (multi CMA) structures Smiley Happy
