AWS latest recommended version?
I'm about to deploy a Gateway Load Balancer Security VPC for Transit Gateway in AWS.
- Deployment Guide for R80.40
- AWS CloudFormation Templates - sk111013
- Installing a Jumbo Hotfix Accumulator on CloudGuard for AWS - sk109141
- CloudGuard Network Security for AWS Gateway Load Balancer Architecture Options - sk174447
What is the latest recommended major release + JHF for a new deployment?
The latest available AWS CloudFormation Templates are version R80.40 while sk111013 notes at the end that "Check Point Default version widely recommended for all deployment is R81.10 with the latest Jumbo Hotfix Accumulator GA Take."
Also the header of sk111013 notes R81 and R81.10.
Regarding sk109141 there are JHFs available & supported for AWS for version R81, R81.10.
Regarding sk174447 for GWLB (Security VPC + TGW) only R80.40 seems to be supported at the moment.
GWLB gateways are still on R80.40 because they use specific configuration with the GENEVE encapsulation.
The next release will be on R81.20 so till then stick to R80.40 and don't install any new JHF on the gateways.
