Mobile Access Portal and Java Compatibility - New Mobile Access Portal Agent technology Technical Level

The new Mobile Access Portal Agent technology is now available.

The Check Point Mobile Access Portal offers a variety of on-demand client technologies, including SSL Network Extender, Compliance Scan and Secure Workspace.

The on-demand technologies are downloaded and invoked by the Mobile Access Portal Agent.
While for Internet Explorer browser, the Portal Agent is implemented as an ActiveX control,
for all other web browsers it is implemented as a Java Plugin, leveraging the Java NPAPI technology.

Java Plugins support has been deprecated by the various web browsers, including Chrome, Firefox and Edge.

Check Point is working on a new Mobile Access Portal Agent technology to maintain the current on-demand technologies support across the various supported web browsers. All browsers are now supported except FireFox on MacOS.

Note: There is no Mobile Access Portal Agent version for the IPsec VPN portal. Users may work with this portal from Internet Explorer only.

The following table outlines Check Point's plan to deliver the new Mobile Access Portal Agent technology:
