Next Generation Endpoint Security Products Licensing Technical Level
Solution

In October 2016, Check Point released the new Next Generation Security Management licensing (NGSM). Also included in this release were Next Generation Endpoint products (NGEP), redesigned to simplify licensing and pricing. This article focuses on the changes to the licensing requirements introduced with the new pricelist.

 

For more information about the legacy Endpoint Security Software Blade licensing, please see Endpoint Security Licensing for E80.x (sk61832).

 

Endpoint Security Licensing Requirements

Next Generation Endpoint requires the installation of two types of licenses, with one optional license:

  1. Endpoint Security Management 
  2. Endpoint Security packages (includes Endpoint Container*)
  3. Endpoint Security Policy Server (optional - for use only with E80.20 or higher)

* Endpoint containers no longer require a separate purchase. An equivalent number of Endpoint container seats are included in the new Endpoint Packages.


Endpoint Security Management

Endpoint Security E80 introduced a new Single Agent Unified Management station for all Endpoint Security components which remains unchanged for Next Generation Endpoint solutions. Management for Endpoint products and SandBlast Agent can be deployed on any management server which includes Check Point Endpoint Management (EPM). This includes Smart-1 appliances.

Dedicated open server management solutions require the installation of one of the following Endpoint Security Management licenses:

Product Description
 CPSM-NGSM5 / Smart-1 5 / Smart-1 205  Endpoint Management package for up to 500 Endpoints
 CPSM-P1003-E / CPSM-NGSM10 / Smart-1210  Endpoint Management package for up to1,000 Endpoints
 CPSM-P2503-E / CPSM-NGSM25 / Smart-1 25 / Smart-1 225  Smart-1 Appliance package for 2,500Endpoints and below

Note: SandBlast Agent for Browsers is managed from a Check Point cloud portal – a license is not required for the management.

 

New Endpoint Security Packages

To simplify the pricing and licensing for Endpoint products and align with SandBlast Agent licensing, Endpoint Security Blades have been consolidated into new packages. Similar to the previous Endpoint blades products, both Perpetual and Annual licenses offered.

 

Perpetual Packages

Check Point offers perpetual packages for the Access Control and Data Protection packages:

SKU Description
 CPEP-ACCESS-P  

Endpoint Access Control perpetual package includes endpoint Firewall and VPN Remote Access

 CPEP-DATA-P

Annual Packages

Check Point offers annual packages for the Access Control, Data Protection, Antivirus, SandBlast Agent, SandBlast Agent for Browsers and Endpoint Complete Protection packages for one, two or three years. The duration of the license is indicated by adding -1Y, -2Y or 3-Y the skus below, for example CPEP-ACCESS-1Y for one year, CPEP-ACCESS-2Y for two years or CPEP-ACCESS-3Y for three years.

Endpoint Security Policy Server (optional - for use with E80.20 or higher only)

Beginning with E80.20, Check Point has introduced Endpoint Policy Servers for remote locations. These will provide a point of connection for remote offices without the need for an additional Endpoint Security Management Server. The SKU for a single Endpoint Security Policy Server is CPSM-CONP-E. No changes were made to the licensing for Policy Servers.

A customer is able to use a number of Policy Servers based on the size of the Endpoint Security Management license in use:

Endpoint Security Management SKU Number of Policy Servers Allowed 
 CPSM-NGSM10/ CPSM-P1003-E  One (1)
 CPSM-P2503-E  Up to Two (2)
 CPSM-PU003-E  Unlimited
 Smart-1 5 / Smart-1 205 / Smart-1 210  One (1)
 Smart-1 25 / Smart-1 225  Up to Two (2)
 Smart-1 50 / Smart-1 3050  Up to Five (5)
 Smart-1 150 / Smart-1 3150  Unlimited
