CheckMates Does CPX360, Vienna Style!

Our CPX 360 show in Vienna was our largest to date with over 4000 customers, partners, and employees in attendance!

 

 

Here I am with James Alliband‌ and Bien Nguyen‌ right before the keynotes:

 

 

Unlike in the Vegas and Bangkok events, CheckMates did not have a booth on the expo floor this time around.

Instead, we had a lounge outside of our breakout track, which proved to be quite popular!

(Great idea, Amit Sharon‌!)

 

 

 

The CheckMates track itself was quite popular as well, particularly Danny Jung‌'s session:

 

 

There was quite a lot to see at this years CPX 360 events!

 

 

Community Highlights

Here are the conversations worth watching in the community:

 

New Software Releases

 

How to apply QoS on a User for restricting Bandwidth? 

Came up here: Limit bandwidth. R77.30  

 

Allowing custom site with external hosted images 

Tricky when taking a whitelist approach and the content is hosted on a CDN.

 

SmartConsole | New 'Group Membership' Feature 

A few of you asked for this feature. It's been added in R80.20.M2.

 

Expert command of Security Management Server to show Initialization Status 

Remember this one.

 

Issues with IE and SandBlast Extension; GPO deployment may be helpful? 

These issues are fixed in E80.92.

 

Can the default be changed for the logging time period results? 

In SmartView, yes.

 

Managing a gateway over VPN 

You don't want to do this.

 

Enable DPD on R80.20 

Some confusion about how this works.

 

R77.20.85 performance issue on centrally managed SMB 

Some additional issues we're tracking in this thread.

 

Is CP planning to support Load-Sharing in future releases? 

It was not added to R80.20. We plan to have it later in 2019.

 

How do I change the https certificate for Sandblast API? 

It uses the SIC certificate, which means...you can't change it.
