Website to check latest IPS update version number

Jump to solution

Hi,

Is there a website where I can check the latest IPS definition number ?

So I can cross check with the one actually installed in my firewall.

Hi,

 

As Tomer replied, we recommend our customers to subscribe to security updates using the following link:

https://www.checkpoint.com/security-advisories-subscription/

 

Additionally, it is possible to use the MGMT CLI command for more IPS update information, as detailed in the documentation below and received the last version.

mgmt_cli show ips-status

https://sc1.checkpoint.com/documents/latest/APIs/#cli/show-ips-status~v1.8%20

 

Thanks,

Avi

Hi

 

You can use this page (used for offline updates)

https://www.checkpoint.com/defense/updates/index.html

 

For R80.X press on the link for Version Information. When I do this I received 635215795

That URL does not appear to be accessible to non-Check Point employees, as I'm getting an "Unauthorized" even though I am signed in to the User Center.

Still trying to see if there is a simple way.

BTW, did you manage to login to https://www.checkpoint.com/defense/updates/index.html

I cannot login to that. I am a Checkpoint Customer. Not a partner.

Thanks.

It should be open to customers with valid IPS license / subscription.

@Tal_Paz-Fridman this is a very old link indeed 🙂 Should be decommissioned long time ago.
