    Default Smartprovisioning being used for large rollouts ?

    Hello;
    We are faced with rolling out a few hundred gateways. They have not been purchased yet but they will most likely be full Gaia devices not the embedded ones. We are at R77.30 at the moment and will probably still be at this version for this roll out.

    Is Smart Provisiong still a better way to go and would we be able to manage policy installs better with provisioning vs. using the normal smartcenter method ?

    I have looked over some of the documentation on Check Point site but I thought I would post this to hear of any good or bad experience using this feature.

    Thanks

    Yeah I think smartpro is better to manage large number of gateways (never used it with regular gaia). But it doesn't make provisioning any easier. Zero touch provisioning (Zero touch portal) is destined only for embedded gaia SMB

    Indeed SmartProvisioning is the right choice when managing hundreds of gateways (whether regular Gaia or Gaia Embedded).

    BTW, regarding Zero Touch that you mentioned, it works very nicely with SmartProvisioning and you can use APIs to orchestrate the entire rollout process of the gateways and the management:

    In addition, we've already started working on Zero Touch support for full Gaia appliances :)
    We'll be happy to speak with customers / partners that are interested. Please drop me a private message if anyone would like to get more info or participate in an EA.
