Quinn hi again!!!
Actually before I joined Check Point, I was responsible to maintain a large asset inventory, renew contracts, track network obsolesce, vulnerabilities etc. In my case the Check Point Usercenter helped me really a lot because the combined output from the management servers mapped with data from the Usercenter was more accurate than what was available within the “static and always out of sync” corporate asset database.
Related to the User Center Sync, there is indeed a requirement to add the gateways in question into a management server and allow this to connect (if necessary using a proxy) with the Usercenter. This is only required if we want to capture additional device information as defined in sk94064.
However even for assets offline, the Check Point Usercenter adds some value. When products are procured without prior connecting them to the network e.g. “cold spare” the records are still visible within the Usercenter. In fact when you procure an asset including spare parts, Check Point is default mapping them within the Usercenter product repository. If additional accessories are separately procured later, the user can always move or attach the accessory to certain hardware manually.
I hope this answers your question…
The following example shows an assets recently procured, not attached to a management server or network.
Within this example the user can move or attach accessory to certain hardware manually.
