Explain the 3-tier architecture components of the Checkpoint Firewall.
The Checkpoint components are based on 3-tier technology architecture.
This 3-tier technology architecture is as follows :
Security Dashboard : Security Dashboard is a Smart Console GUI (Graphical User Interface) application that system administrators use to create and manage security policies.
Security Gateway : Security Gateway is a device used as a cyber barrier to prevent the entry of unauthorized traffic into an organization's network. It makes security policy for an organization and acts as an entry point for a LAN (Local Area Network). The Security Management Server manages it.
Security Management Server : System administrators use Security Management Server to manage security policies. It stores an organization's databases, security policies, and event logs. It is also used to store, manage and distribute the security policies to Security Gateways.
