R80.30, part of the Check Point Infinity architecture, delivers the most innovative and effective security that keeps our customers protected against large scale, fifth generation cyber threats.

This release introduces R80.30 3.10 for Security Gateway and VSX, with major enhancements in firewall resiliency and Clustering mechanism.

This release is considered as a Main Train release, however it is not part of the Check Point R80.30 Release and requires a dedicated image. Note it can be managed by a Check Point R80.30 Security Management Server, which already supports the 3.10 kernel.

Starting August 2019 this release will be supported by a Jumbo Hotfix Accumulator release for both R80.30 3.10 and standard R80.30 versions.

R80.30 3.10 can be managed by the following Security Management Server releases:

Contact Check Point Support to obtain a special Hotfix for R80.10 and R80.20 based on your current Jumbo Hotfix Take.
