We have heard that the Check Point can work as simple WAF.
We are thinking that it is a part of IPS. Becasue there is no WAF blade.

However we couldn't find any documents and information about it in SK or this check mate site.

Could you inform me of how to configure Check Point as WAF?


We know that OWASP Top 10 is renewed in 2017 as below.
A2:2017-Broken Authentication
A3:2017-Sensitive Data Exposure
A4:2017-XML External Entities (XXE)
A5:2017-Broken Access Control
A6:2017-Security Misconfiguration
A7:2017-Cross-Site Scripting
A8:2017-Insecure Deserialization
A9:2017-Using Components with Known Vulnerabilities
A10:2017-Insufficient Logging&Monitoring

We are thinking that the above each item is corresponded to a signature of IPS.
