SandBlast Now still EA?? If so, any dates for GA?

SandBlast Now is generally available to all customers. We have many production customers on the now.checkpoint.com cloud, and a few that have purchased private Now clouds.

CGI TAP is considered to be in EA. The main gaps towards GA are support for LB tapping for autoscaling; and a cloud service SKU.

Thanks for the reply Nir. I was looking for information on the website and SKUs but couldn't find anything else apart this post on Checkmates.

I would like to know more information and what are the SKUs of the supported appliances, licensing, etc. to position in our clients.

Hi Miguel,

The collateral hasn't kept up with the R&D team, we're moving really fast 🙂.

First of all, there are a few other posts on Checkmates - look for CGI TAP, a SandBlast Now Tech Talk, and a CPX 2020 breakout presentation by one of our customers.

We will be launching a new set of SandBlast Now Cloud service SKUs in the near future. Till that further notice, the existing licensing scheme is that the cloud service is included in the NGTX service. In other words, if you have an active service contract and support on your NGTX, you can use it in "Now Mode".

One caveat is that we support inline configurations only with a fail-open NIC. To make it easier, we created six NOW bundle SKUs that include a 4 port 1Gbps copper fail-open NIC with an NGTX appliance. These are: CPAP-SG5100-NOW, CPAP-SG5400-NOW, CPAP-SG5800-NOW, CPAP-SG5900-NOW-SSD, CPAP-SG15600-NOW, CPAP-SG23800-NOW. But as noted above, you can just use a standard NGTX license.
