Q&A from the session below
Are the Sessions from CPX 360 2021 still available?
Yes, we have them all on CheckMates.
Do the "large" and "XL" Smart1 appliances assume separate and dedicated logging instances?
According to the datasheet, yes.
Can we deploy the "web smartconsole" on app server of our choice?
Currently, it is only supported to be deployed on the Security Management server.
If a Security Gateway is managed by Smart-1 Cloud, will there be any impact when the Smart-1 Cloud instance upgrades?
Similar to what happens when you upgrade an on-premise Security Management server, gateways will continue to operate as normal. Logs will be stored on the gateway until the Smart-1 Cloud instance comes back online.
