It’s been almost six months since the R81.20 (Titan) release. On April 30th Check Point finally released its first Jumbo Hot Fix. Seemed like a really long time to see a first Jumbo as ‘Recommended’ in CPUSE, but hey it’s here now.

A lot of interesting news features tucked in here including 90 day extensions on some of the software blades:

Security Management

NEW: Added ability to run the “verify-policy” Management API command on a private session with unpublished changes.

NEW: Central Deployment of Hotfixes and Version Upgrades in SmartConsole will now support clusters of Centrally Managed Quantum Spark Appliances that run R81.10.XX firmware versions.
