CPUG: The Check Point User Group

Resources for the Check Point Community, by the Check Point Community.


I'd like to thank everyone involved for making "The CPUG Challenge" a great success.
We helped a lot of people see and learn a bit more about R80.10, while having some fun.
We will be using this success to try and bring more events to more locations soon. -E

    Default Barry Stiefel - RIP

    Just saw the linkedin post by Moti Sagey that Barry passed away.
    Sad news and I am sure he will be remembered, especially by this community as the founder of it.
    May he rest in peace

    Yes, I have heard as well. I was waiting until I had more details before posting here, but there's very little concrete info.

    For now, I'll leave it at this:


    Barry, thanks for everything you did (which is quite a lot) to create, grow, and continue CPUG for over 13 years. I hope you look down at it with pride. Godspeed.

    There were some ups & downs over the years, but his work getting this board established brought us together.

    Hope his family is OK.

    Barry and I definitely had our differences over the years--sometimes quite publicly--but there was definitely mutual respect.

    I first heard about his passing on Monday morning from a mutual acquaintance, who could offer no details.
    Palo Alto Networks noted his passing at their Ignite conference on Tuesday (basically their version of CPX).
    I saw the slide on Twitter and shared it with Eric and Moti.
    I wish I knew more, but that's all I know.
