Autonomous Threat Prevention Management Technical Level

We are happy to announce the new Autonomous Threat Prevention Management

  • A whole new way to manage your Threat Prevention Security Gateways

  • Single Click Configuration - The administrator just needs to choose one of the predefined types of networks for the Security Gateways to protect (Perimeter, Data Center East-West, Internal Network, Guest Network, Strict Security).

  • Automatic Configuration Updates - Check Point automatically updates the profile and the customers automatically enjoy new features, advanced protections enabled (based on research and ongoing attacks) and other best practices.

  • Streamlines configuration and deployment of policy profiles across your Security Gateways.

  • Provides simple and powerful customization to serve your organization's needs.

  • Zero day-to-day maintenance required from the administrator, while maintaining optimal security.

  • Main Beneficiaries

    • Customers who do not have time to handle Threat Prevention configuration
    • Customers who do not know how to configure Threat Prevention and want to be more secured
    • Customers who would like their Threat Prevention configuration to always be up to date
  • A short video:

Note - In R81.10 Infinity Threat Prevention was renamed to Autonomous Threat Prevention. 

Can Customers/Check Point Personnel Enable it on their Own?

YES - Autonomous Threat Prevention is already available in:



  • Q: Do we need a special license?

    • A: No, the same licenses apply (NGTP/NGTX).

  • Q: Does Autonomous Threat Prevention cause an impact on performance?

    • A: No, there is no change in Security Gateway engines, only the policy reader was changed. Relevant technologies are enabled by default according to the installed license.

  • Q: Is a policy installation needed after Autonomous Threat Prevention updates itself?

    • A: No, a Security Gateway is updated automatically and does not require a policy installation, unless a customer overrides the policy with exceptions/file overrides.

  • Q: What profile should I use if the same Security Gateway protects a perimeter, internal network, and a guest network?

    • A: Recommended for Perimeter is also the recommended profile for multi-purposes protections.

  • Q: How can I check if a specific IPS protection is active?

    • A: According to the performance impact and severity shown in Profiles Comparison

  • Q: How to decide what is the best profile to choose?

    • A: Click "Help me decide" to compare the profiles.

  • Q: Are there any known limitations?

    • A: MTA (Mail Transfer Agent) is not supported with Autonomous Threat Prevention. Security Gateways configured as MTA can be managed by Custom (Traditional) Threat Prevention.

  • Q: Where can I get more information?

    • A: To get more details and get an answer to any question, send an email to your local Check Point representative and add in the "CC" field.
