    Event Analysis with SmartEvent
    The SmartEvent Software Blade is a unified security event management and analysis solution that delivers real-time, graphical threat management information. SmartConsole, SmartView Web Application, and the SmartEvent GUI client consolidate billions of logs and show them as prioritized security events so you can immediately respond to security incidents, and do the necessary actions to prevent more attacks. You can customize the views to monitor the events that are most important to you. You can move from a high level view to detailed forensic analysis in a few clicks. With the free-text search and suggestions, you can quickly run data analysis and identify critical security events.

    • Firewall
    • Identity Awareness
    • Application Control
    • URL Filtering
    Explanation:

    Check Point Identity Awareness Software Blade provides granular visibility of users, groups and machines, providing unmatched application and access control through the creation of accurate, identity-based policies. Centralized management and monitoring allows for policies to be managed from a single, unified console.

  6. How many users can have read/write access in Gaia Operating System at one time?

    • Infinite
    • One
    • Three
    • Two
  7. Sally has a Hot Fix Accumulator (HFA) she wants to install on her Security Gateway which operates with GAiA, but she cannot SCP the HFA to the system. She can SSH into the Security Gateway, but she has never been able to SCP files to it. What would be the most likely reason she cannot do so?

    • She needs to edit /etc/SSHd/SSHd_config and add the Standard Mode account.
    • She needs to run sysconfig and restart the SSH process.
    • She needs to edit /etc/scpusers and add the Standard Mode account.
    • She needs to run cpconfig to enable the ability to SCP files.
  8. John Adams is an HR partner in the ACME organization. ACME IT wants to limit access to HR servers to designated IP addresses to minimize malware infection and unauthorized access risks. Thus, gateway policy permits access only from Join’s desktop which is assigned an IP address 10.0.0.19 via DHCP.

    John received a laptop and wants to access the HR Web Server from anywhere in the organization. The IT department gave the laptop a static IP address, but the limits him to operating it only from his desk. The current Rule Base contains a rule that lets John Adams access the HR Web Server from his laptop. He wants to move around the organization and continue to have access to the HR Web Server.
    To make this scenario work, the IT administrator:

    1) Enables Identity Awareness on a gateway, selects AD Query as one of the Identity Sources.
    2) Adds an access role object to the Firewall Rule Base that lets John Adams PC access the HR Web Server from any machine and from any location.

    John plugged in his laptop to the network on a different network segment and he is not able to connect. How does he solve this problem?

    • John should install the identity Awareness Agent
    • The firewall admin should install the Security Policy
    • John should lock and unlock the computer
    • Investigate this as a network connectivity issue
  9. Which feature in R77 permits blocking specific IP addresses for a specified time period?

    • HTTP Methods
    • Local Interface Spoofing
    • Block Port Overflow
  10. MyCorp has the following NAT rules. You need to disable the NAT function when Alpha-internal networks try to reach the Google DNS (8.8.8.8) server.

    What can you do in this case?

    • Use manual NAT rule to make an exception
    • Use the NAT settings in the Global Properties
    • Disable NAT inside the VPN community
    • Use network exception in the Alpha-internal network object
  11. What is the potential downside or drawback to choosing the Standalone deployment option instead of the Distributed deployment option?

    • degrades performance as the Security Policy grows in size
    • requires additional Check Point appliances
    • requires additional software subscription
    • increases cost
  12. Which of the following statements accurately describes the command snapshot?

    • snapshot creates a Security Management Server full system-level backup on any OS
    • snapshot stores only the system-configuration settings on the Gateway

    • Security Gateway
    • Host
    • Security Management object

  16. What happens if the identity of a user is known?

    • If the user credentials do not match an Access Role, the system displays the Captive Portal.
    • If the user credentials do not match an Access Role, the system displays a sandbox.
    • If the user credentials do not match an Access Role, the traffic is automatically dropped.
    • If the user credentials match an Access Role, the rule is applied and traffic is accepted or dropped based on the defined action.
  17. Message digests use which of the following?

    • DES and RC4
    • IDEA and RC4
    • SSL and MD4
    • SHA-1 and MD5
  18. When using LDAP as an authentication method for Identity Awareness, the query:
