Configuring CMA for Check Point Provider-1 Firewalls

The Check Point Provider-1 Customer Management Add-On (CMA) creates logs that are then consolidated by the Customer Log Module (CLM). If you want the CLM to send logs to FortiSIEM, you must first configure the CMA and obtain the AO Client SIC to configure access credentials for communication between the CLM and FortiSIEM.

Discover Paired Components on the Same Collector or Supervisor

Discovery of the MLM requires the certificate of the MDS, and discovery of the CLM requires the certificate of the CMA. Make sure that you discover the MDS & MLM pair, and the CMA & CLM pair, on the same Supervisor or Collector. If you attempt to discover them on separate Collectors, discovery will fail.
