Refer to sk111080 - How to configure Check Point software to upload data to Check Point / download data from Check Point.

 

Enhance product usability - allow the Security Management Server and Security Gateways to send data to Check Point.

Check Point learns from your experiences and feedback, and will update this feature to make sure that you have the best possible experience. The type of uploaded data may change from version to version.

This setting activates the Check Point UserCenter Synchronization tool. It updates your UserCenter account with information from your Security Gateways, mapping your SKUs to your actual deployment. For each Security Gateway/Security Management Server this data is sent:

  • Name, IP address, software version, operating system and last policy install time
  • Active software blades list including their last update time
  • Assigned licenses and Blade Contracts
  • For Check Point appliances: MAC address, appliance model and hardware accessories (for example, additional memory, network card, etc.)
  • Whether the gateway is part of a cluster, a virtual system (VSX) or configured as a Security Management Server

This setting on a Security Management Server applies to all managed Security Gateways (R77 and above).

To change this setting after completing the First Time Configuration Wizard:

  • In SmartConsole R80.X:

    1. Connect with SmartConsole to Security Management Server / Domain Management Server.

    2. Go to the Application Menu - click on the 'Global properties...'.
