Support for IP Appliance Customers

We are pleased to announce that we have completed our acquisition of Nokia's Security Business. We have combined the skills, experience, logistical span, and best practices of both support teams and we are looking forward to offering you comprehensive, one-stop services for Check Point UTM-1, Power-1 and IP appliances. Our combined organization will simplify your support experience, improve escalation, and speed the time to resolution.

The Unified Check Point Global on-site operation covers more than 250 worldwide locations with over 20,000 supported on-site units.

Technical Assistance Center (TAC)
Check Point’s Unified Support organization provides 24x7 follow-the-sun service with 3 major Technical Assistance Centers, located in Dallas, Ottawa, and Tel Aviv. Service requests are handled with full back up between the centers that ensures no single point of failure and continuous support.

The Nokia support team is fully integrated into Check Point’s Technical Services organization, enabling legacy Nokia IP appliance customers with hardware issues to receive support from a seasoned group of support engineers with vast Nokia hardware knowledge.

In order to ensure business continuity, Check Point will continue to provide the following:

Getting Support

Effective immediately, all service requests associated with IP appliances, including hardware, IPSO and Check Point applications, should be directed through the Check Point Support Center – directly or through a Check Point certified support provider (CSP / CCSP).  

Check Point will create new User Center accounts for all Nokia customers. New User Center contacts will receive an e-mail message that includes the new User Center account ID and login details. Once this migration is complete, no additional registration will be required.
