You can configure reports to show your company logo on report cover pages. The Check Point logo shows on report cover pages.

To add a logo to your reports:

Note: The best image dimensions are 152 pixels wide by 94 pixels high.

  6. Select Active for the schedules you want to activate.
  7. Optional: Click Email Settings.
  8. Select Send By Email, and configure email settings to get the schedule report automatically.

Generating a Network Activity Report

The Network Activity report shows important firewall connections. For example, top sources, destinations, and services. To create this report, SmartEvent must first index the firewall logs.

To enable the Network Activity Report:

  1. Open SmartConsole > Logs & Monitor.
  2. Click the (+) to open a Catalog (new tab).
  3. Click the SmartEvent Settings & Policy link.
  4. In the SmartEvent GUI client > Policy tab, select and expand Consolidated Sessions.

    Note - this configuration increases the number of events per day by about five times. To avoid a performance impact, make sure the hardware can handle the load.
