Enterprise Endpoint Security E87.10 Windows Clients. Vulnerability Management capability is now available for EA customers. It reduces the attack surface through accurate assessment of vulnerabilities, risky applications, and computers within the organization. Also, added ability to specify fingerprint of the Gateway when creating a site from CLI.
Enterprise Endpoint Security E87.00 macOS Clients. Added support for Endpoint Security on macOS 13 (Ventura) as a GA (General Availability) version. Added the Application Control Blade that allows to control which applications can run or use networking.

Added ability to specify fingerprint of the Gateway when creating a site from CLI.
Added support for Endpoint Security on Windows 11 version 22H2.
Added the Endpoint Security browser extension to the Brave browser. Improved the detection algorithm reducing the amount of false-positive ransomware detections.
Anti-Malware can now update signatures from https://kav8.zonealarm.com/v6. Enhanced the purge mechanism to reduce memory consumption during AMSI logs cleanup. Also, added AR and BG support for asterisks and environment variables support on exclusions.
The Endpoint Client now blocks against more encryption programs that may be used to encrypt a drive as part of a Ransomware attack. Programs that are used for legitimate purposes can be allowed by excluding the encryptor's signature. The feature is controlled by the "Block Bitlocker Encryption" option in the Endpoint management.
Endpoint Client now supports new Push Operations: creating and deleting a VPN site and registry key or value, collecting processed information from the client machine, and moving or deleting a file on the client machine.
Endpoint Client now supports turning ON/OFF admin-enabled capabilities.
Harmony Endpoint now supports multi-users in Windows environments. The solution includes Microsoft Terminal Servers (RDS), Citrix Virtual Apps (XenApp), and VMware Horizon Apps.
A small executable named Mac Tiny Agent which is downloaded from an Endpoint server. Once it runs, it downloads and installs the initial client. Tiny Agent's functionality is very similar to tiny/nano agent in Windows.
A popular Microsoft MDM named Intune MDM. Its support entails the tiny agent, which can generate a special script that should be uploaded to Intune.
A new supplementary guide named Endpoint Security for Mac Mobile Device Management (MDM) Deployment Guide is also released, explaining how to upgrade using PKG file only.
General Availability support for the Endpoint Security Clients on macOS Monterey (12)
Software Deployment General Availability
Port Protection Early Availability feature for blocking USB, Bluetooth, camera and printer devices. See sk176366 for more details.
Initial client: A small sized client (~20MB) which allows easier initial deployment of Endpoint Clients to an organization
Push operations: the following push operations are supported- Collect Logs to Check Point FTP server, Kill process, Uninstall client, Reboot machine, Shutdown machine, Scan for malware (AM), Update signatures (AM), Restore quarantined files (AM), Analyze by indicator, File Remediation
AM on access performance improvements
macOS endpoints now have support for Threat Hunting
VPN client for macOS can be installed without Firewall blade
Location Aware Connectivity Early Availability: Remote Access Clients intelligently detects whether or not it is inside the VPN domain (Enterprise LAN), and automatically connects or disconnects as required
VPN client for macOS can use additional cypher suites from TLS1.2 while creating VPN sites
Introduces a hotfix on top of E84.70 in addition to all the E84.70 contents. In this release, the PPL processes for Windows Security Center: Anti-Malware, Firewall and Threat Emulation were signed with a new cross-signed certificate. The new signature preempts the possibility that a future KB release of Microsoft Windows will block the Check Point PPL processes. This fixes an issue that only exists in E84.70.
Threat Hunting - an investigative tool to collect all events from Endpoints that provides Security administrators with multiple manual remediation options such as Quarantine, KillProcess and Forensics Analysis with remediation.
Anti-Malware can download signatures from an authenticated NTLM proxy with a logged in user's credentials and can also work in "Detect only" mode.
Check Point Endpoint Security clients protect all of your Windows and Mac workstations, including laptops, Desktops, and Windows Servers.
Check Point takes part in various OS manufactures' development processes and we start the support of new versions when vendors release development builds.
We are committed to offer early availability clients within 3 weeks of OS GA and to announce GA within 2 months of OS GA, however in practice we are delivering much faster. See sk115192 for OS support timeline.
