Capsule Connect on MacOS Catalina

I was using macOS 14 (Mojave) with Capsule Connect successfully. I upgraded to macOS 15 (Catalina) and now the Capsule Connect client is flagged as incompatible (non 64 bit perhaps) and will no longer load at startup. I downloaded a new copy of the client (regenerated the welcome email and downloaded a fresh copy of the client) and attempted to install it but it does not seem to be loading. Can anyone confirm if the client is compatible or not with Catalina please?

Cloud Guard Edge VNF

Hi,     If I have understood it correctly, the CloudGuard Edge is a solution on which you can enable a CheckPoint instance inside a SD-WAN Appliance.      It is enabled through the VNF (Virtual Network Function).  I understand that this is a VM inside the SD-WAN Appliance.      Is this VNF an static machine, with pre-defined Memory, CPU and Disk Space? Or I can reconfigure it as necessary? Of course within the limits of the SD-WAN appliance.      In the presentation "sd-wan security.pdf" ( it says that the "minimum" required (page 16) is 1GB RAM, 1 "core", 1GB disk space. The license is based in the number of cores. It means I can change the VNF to user more resources and so guarantee more performance?      The datasheet talks only about the 520v and 840 models. Are these the only ones supported?Thanks,

Capsule Cloud on 80.30

Is there anyone successfully managing capsule cloud on 80.30? We are in the middle of migrating to managing it from 80.30 from our old 77.30 management server. I do have a case open with checkpoint and am continuing to peruse it, I just wanted to see if anyone else was having success.  Also is this product pretty much on the way out? I am seeing posts about Network Security as a Service being the future for mobile management in this area. Is any more effort being put into keeping capsule cloud a viable service? I see it is running on a 75.40 engine.

What is a reasonable 'Quality of service' with Capsule Connect

I am based in Ireland where there is a single Capsule Connect POP. Recently some of my clients (and myself as a user) are experiencing slowness and delays with Capsule Connect. Disconnecting the client immediately resolves the issue. When I look at the client and specifically at the 'Quality of service' value, it's showing around the 209 milliseconds mark. My immediate sense is that this is a large value but I need a point of reference. I have not paid attention to this pre-issue so cannot say if this is up on what it was previously. Can someone give me a steer here? What value is seen in other locales, especially ones with multiple POPs?ThanksSteve

Capsule Cloud product status and future

Can anyone share the data on what is going on with Capsule Cloud? I am not very familiar with the product, but was asked about Check Point's cloud managed endpoint offerings and am looking at it now. From the It looks like last release was almost two years ago, that it is logging HTTPS when set not to and requires Java for SSO and integration with AD. Before I spend any more time on it, I'd like to hear if this is something that Check Point is intended to maintain and develop further or if it is a dead end product being eventually replaced by something else. Thank you, Vladimir

Hi all, Is there any document that refers to all the possible public IP addresses of cloud capsule nodes?Our SIEM systems are alerting users moving between countries everytime they reconnect, we would like to whitelist all known IPs if there is a up to date list.
