Smart-1 Cloud answers the evolving needs of enterprise security management today. Businesses are up to date with the latest security and are able to manage the latest threats across devices and workloads via a single management console. Security management delivered from the cloud scales as environments grow without having to worry about limited physical storage space or log storage capacity. With Smart-1 Cloud organizations save time on startup, infrastructure and maintenance costs.
In minutes, have the latest Security Management release with the full functionality running as a service and have all your gateways connected. Connecting a gateway is easy. Create an HTTPS tunnel from the gateway to the service using a unique authentication key. Once the gateway object is created, all that is left is to initiate the Secure Internal Communication (SIC). Then focus on managing your organizations security and analyzing the logs and events.
Always the Latest Security Management
Security is a process. As threats evolve so do the security processes and technologies designed to address these threats. This includes security and threat management. New releases include new capabilities and new tools like threat analytics for improved threat visibility. With cloud delivered security management, organizations don’t have to worry about finding a change window to update the security management server to the latest, new software release.
Like other Software-as-a-Service models, Smart-1 Cloud is available for a yearly subscription. Start with management for 5 gateways with 200 GB of log storage to store up to 5 GB of logs per day. As your business grows and you add additional gateways, you get 50 GB of additional log storage to store up to 1 GB of logs per day. Easily expand on-demand, adding more gateways and storage as you see fit.
Check Point maintains the infrastructure and software. Until now, you had to plot your windows of maintenance, run testing, and then roll out an upgrade campaign to all selected candidates to get them up to date. Today, with Smart-1 Cloud, this is automatically updated for you. In addition we do daily backups and monitor systems and disk space for any issues.

Check Point’s next generation policy makes it extremely easy to segment policy into manageable sections with inline shared policies. Create rules in sub-policies aligned to specific business function like control of safe Internet use. Then delegate authority of the policy and share it across teams, ensuring consistency and freeing key security personnel to handle other tasks.
Work without conflict. Session-based object locking enables multiple administrators and the same administrator to work simultaneously on the same rule base. Granular administrator delegation enables access based on role such as SOC analyst, auditor and security administrator.
With one console, security teams can manage all aspects of security from policy to threat prevention – across the entire organization – on both physical and virtual environments. Consolidated management means increased operational efficiency.
In addition to a unified console, a unified access control policy for users, applications, data and networks simplifies policy management.
Security can be complex, but there are industry and security best practices to guide you. Real-time compliance monitoring and reporting is built-in, showing admins how their policy compares with Security Best Practices and regulations such as GDPR, HIPAA and PCI DSS.
With too much work and too little staff, security teams need to work smarter. Automation and granular delegation are key to helping alleviate operational overhead. With RESTful APIs, security teams can automate any task.
An intuitive web-based user interface, enables large enterprises to provision security efficiently. Apply a template describing device configuration settings to your inventory of new security gateways. When powered on Check Point gateways get their configuration from the cloud and are ready for a security policy.
Threat Management is fully integrated, with logging, monitoring, event correlation and reporting in one place. Visual dashboards provide full visibility into security across the network, helping you monitor the status of your enforcement points and stay alert to potential threats.
