Updatable Objects in R80.20 and higher
Quantum Security Gateways
R80.20, R80.30, R80.40, R81, R81.10
An updatable object is a network object that represents an external service, such as Office 365, AWS, GEO locations and more. External services providers publish lists of IP addresses, or Domains, or both, to allow access to their services. These lists are dynamically updated. Updatable objects derive their contents from these published lists of the providers, which Check Point uploads to the Check Point cloud. The updatable objects are updated automatically on the Security Gateway each time the provider changes a list. There is no need to install policy for the updates to take effect. You can use an updatable object in the Access Control policy as a source, or a destination.
These are the currently supported external services for updatable objects:
Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Amazon Web Services (abbreviated AWS) is a collection of remote computing services (also called web services) that together make up a cloud computing platform, offered over the Internet by Amazon.
The Geo database is downloaded from MaxMind, a leading provider of IP Intelligence and online fraud prevention tools. MaxMind provides mapping of location data for IP addresses. The server downloads the updated database from MaxMind on a weekly basis.
In some well-known HTTPS services, HTTPS Inspection is unable to establish the trust between the client and the Security Gateway and is therefore unable to inspect the traffic. If you choose to bypass specific HTTPS services to avoid connectivity issues, they will not perform HTTPS Inspection.
The Dynamics Customer Relationship Management (CRM) is a system for managing a company's interactions with current and future customers, using technology to organize, automate, and synchronize sales, marketing, customer service, and technical support.
