    Thanks for the link.

    “we submitted an early-release version (R80.20) and encountered some stability issues that resulted in automatic “Caution” rating according to NSS Labs Testing methodology”

    From Check Point’s R80.20 portal page:

    “IMPORTANT – Check Point Public EA is only for lab and sandbox deployments”

    The NSS Labs test results have a lot of visibility. The last time I saw a bad result in an open test was probably back in 2003-2004. Someone should be fired for managing the test this way: it’s going to make some of our jobs unnecessarily more difficult. I am hoping for a public follow-up from NSS Labs that clears this up.
