Hi all,

We are happy to announce that R81, part of the Check Point Infinity architecture, has been released!

With 81 new features, R81, is imperative for putting our network security on the fast track, providing most advanced Threat Prevention and security management software that delivers uncompromising simplicity and consolidation across the enterprise.

Whether it is deploying the latest technologies and security to protect the organization or expertly crafting security policies, R81 new features include: Infinity Threat Prevention, the industry’s first autonomous Threat Prevention system that provides fast, self-driven policy creation and one-click security profiles keeping policies always up-to-date. Policies are installed in seconds, upgrades require only one click and gateways can be simultaneously upgraded in minutes.

R81 further features secure connectivity for encrypted traffic utilizing the latest standards including TLS 1.3 and HTTP/2.

In addition, the Scalable Platform software is now aligned with the R81 Cyber Security Platform bringing feature parity to CheckPoint Maestro

This release is initially recommended for customers who are interested in implementing the new features.

We will make it the default version after significant adoption. It will then be available in the 'Showing Recommended Packages' section in the CPUSE tab in Gaia portal. Until then the Check Point's  default version is R80.40.

For “What’s New”, Release Notes and more information, please refer to R81 Homepage [sk166715].

We’ll be monitoring the adoption of the release closely as well as any issues that may arise. Please feel free to reach out to us with any feedback or questions.

 

Best Regards,

Release Management group

Can you manage R81 gateways from an R80.40 management server?

Hi,

R81 is a major release and will be able to be managed by it coming minor release R81.10, R80.20...

So, the answer is no, R81 GW can't be managed by R80.40 MGMT.

Thanks!

Hi Shirleyh,

just to clarify any misunderstanding for people reading your post: You'd a typo in your answer: R80.20 will not be able to manage R81 GWs.

Only R81 Mgmt and upcoming versions (R81.10, R81.20,...) will.

Cheers,
Thomas
