Check Point Open Platform for Security (OPSEC)

Check Point Open Platform for Security (OPSEC) manages network security through an open, extensible management framework.

Deep Discovery Director (Consolidated Mode) integrates with Check Point OPSEC via the Suspicious Activities Monitoring (SAM) API.

The SAM API implements communications between the SAM client (Deep Discovery Director (Consolidated Mode)) and the Check Point firewall, which acts as a SAM Server. Deep Discovery Director (Consolidated Mode) uses the SAM API to request that the Check Point firewall take specified actions for certain connections.

For example, Deep Discovery Director (Consolidated Mode) may ask Check Point OPSEC to block a connection with a client that is attempting to issue illegal commands or repeatedly failing to log on.
