This guide tells you how to configure Check Point collection protocol which collects events from a Check Point event source such as a firewall or Check Point Log Manager.
How Check Point Collection Works
The Log Collector service collects events from Check Point event sources using OPSEC LEA. OPSEC LEA is the Check Point Operations Security Log Export API that facilitates the extraction of logs.
The following figure illustrates how you deploy the Check Point Collection Protocol in Security Analytics.
