Check Point Proactive Health-Check
One of the best solution for real-time security device monitoring including root-cause analysis and automatic remediation
Often, there are complaints by the customer side about their security vendor simply because they do not have the whole picture and the tools on the network side, to investigate and come up with an accurate conclusion. In many cases where professional engineers study the root-cause analysis of a specific problem, their findings are not necessarily pinpointed to the security vendors. Revive statistics module is a perfect way how to see the gateway throughput at any given moment, search for information related to throughput history, and most importantly can drill down with detail information to the top sources, destination, and services.
Application layer attacks emerge endlessly, and therefore, it is essential to activate the IPS blade. But what if the company enabled the IPS and suddenly your gateway is starting to work slowly? Maybe a single signature is causing the load, out of 6000 signatures? How do I track that signature? In the absence of the right tools to understand the reason for that slowness, most companies won't have the tolerance to keep that blade up and running and will roll back to the previous configuration. Apart from the frustration and the fact the organization is not secure, it will be challenging to regain the customer's trust to reactivate that blade again.
In a cluster configuration where there are at least two modules, all configurations should be the same and consistent – if not, once the standby member will become active, certain services will not work and therefore it is important to have an intelligent tool that will consistently check and compare the configuration.
