Please help to understand the difference b/w MDS and provider1
yes, provider-1 is just old name for multi domain system..
Check Point still uses the old names today. I teached my colleagues on the new terminology, MDS, DMS, MDSM, etc. Even today Check Point support references to CMAs and other names while most new people are not used to these old names anymore.
Provider-1 is an old name for MDSM - Multi-Domain Security Management product family.
MDS stands for Muti-Domain Server. MDS is one of the flavors when installing MDSM. There is also MLM - multi domain log server.
Similar question in 2030 year:
Is SmartDashboard the same like SmartConsole ?
Maybe someone can write some article with all shortcuts related to Check Point what we know so far?
Thanks to all
Please share the related document if any
I think you forgot to add that the flavors of MDS/MDSM vary - all depends if you're using Single-Domain or Multi-Domain envoronment (multi CMA) structures
