Below two command required to execute. 
1st:   cp_log_export add name <name> [domain-server <domain-server>] target-server <target-server> target-port <target-port> protocol <(udp|tcp)> format <(syslog)|(cef)> [optional arguments] 
EXAMPLE : cp_log_export add name ArcSight target-server target-port 514 protocol tcp format syslog

2nd: cp_log_export  <command-name>

Step 05:  verify by running tcpdump command.
EXAMLE:-  tcpdump -nni eth0 port '514'
NOTE: Need to configure from SIEM side as well.
NOTE: Jumbo Hotfix may you take the latest one as per the new release, my case I am using take_338
Refer SK: sk122323 for more details.
NOTE: On R80.20  onwards no need to install any additional HotFix, latest jumbo take is enough.

See this article for R80.10:

R80.10 Syslog Exporter

I'm curious, are you saying you used Log Exporter with the syslog format option to send Check Point logs to Alien Vault?

As far as I can tell, their documentation hasn't included this as an option yet so am curious to see if this is working for you. 

thank you,
