BitLocker management is available for data protection license endpoints with Full Disk Encryption service enabled.

Checkpoint Sandblast Agent need to connect when in Roaming

Hi Team,Our requirement is to connect the Endpoint Security Management Server when the machine is outside of the organization. Like the machine should communicate to the Endpoint Management Server using public internet. So the Administrator able to see the live logs from the Management console.Some Few Solution:1. We can deploy Endpoint Security Management Server on Cloud. (Cloud Management for SandBlast Agent)(sk117536).2. We can use Remote Access VPN to able to communicate with the Endpoint Management Server which required additional Checkpoint Security Gateway to establish a tunnel or we also use the third party remote VPN solution if the customer is not using CP security Gateway.The reason that not feasible the above solution for Some customer:-Reason 1: Customer is not ready to deploy on the cloud Because they already have enough resources to deploy Endpoint Security Management Server On-premises.Reason 2: Most of the user are staying outside of the organization and also they don't have much idea that every time connects to the Endpoint Server using VPN. NOTE: Some of the other vendors such as Symantec is using one feature that gives you an option to define the public IP on the Management Server console with any PORT as per our choice. Also, that same PORT needs to define allow on the Internet-facing Firewall with Static NAT configuration so if the customer is outside of the organization able to communicate with Server without the need of any VPN solution. So My query is that, Is there any alternate solution that we able to communicate with the Endpoint Management Server when on outside of the organization. Regards@Chinmaya_Naik

The first time it was funny.....

The first time this happened I just had a bit of a laugh. Subsequent times made me question the effectiveness of Checkpoint.I have just done a fresh install of Windows on a Surface Pro. After the image was applied, I logged onto the device for the first time......and almost immediately I got a Checkpoint popup telling me that 18 files had been harmed by a ransomware attack and been quarantined. I clicked the link to show me that 18 files that had been quarantined.......only to find they all had names along the lines of 'checkpoint curriculum vitae-don'tdelete.pptx' or 'sandblast zero-day-funddon't-delete.txt'.I am not the Checkpoint administrator in my organisation, so my understanding of Checkpoint is fairly limited, but I believe these are honeypot files placed on my C drive by Checkpoint? I don't know if this is an indicator of the quality of Checkpoint - they have created honeypot files so convincing that it managed to fool itself, or an indicator of the lack of quality of Checkpoint - it doesn't know the difference between a real ransomware infection and it's own honeypot files. Either way doesn't really fill me with a lot of confidence.And on the subject of the honeypot files, we have had the odd user - admittedly only 1 or two - who have had gigabytes of these honeypot files placed in their user profiles. This causes major problems for users with roaming profiles!
