Running on Smart1 management appliance with 15400 gateways, all R80.10 with the latest hotfixes.  Our Application Control & URL Filtering version is showing 81201808281051 (Created on: 8/28/2018 6:51 AM) of today October 1, 2018. Clicking update returns that it's up to date.  All licenses/contracts are good up until 2021. IPS, Anti-bot, & anti-virus blades are updating properly and all showing todays date or only a few days old at most

 

Checkpoint support engineer on another non-related case last week confirmed that his lab environment was showing the same almost 1 month old version at the time and "it must be the right version' when he clicked update it returned as up to date for him as well.

 

New to Checkpoint. Past several months since implementation I would see the App/URL version be 3 to 10 days behind but never this long.   Previously used Websense and used to getting daily database updates at a minimum.  We block uncategorized sites and the uptick in complaints from our users about being blocked from an uncategorized site has steadily increased the older this version gets.    I have hard time believing no new or recategorized URL's have occurred across the world in over a month.  Am I missing something that this database version is not what I think it is?
