Configuring Check Point NGX VPN-1/Firewall-1 is a "must have" for security administration having to deal with the newer version of the software. Most useful aspect: you could use this book as an additional aid to your NGX Courseware material. Very well structured, it is a reference written by professionals for professionals, and it is candidated to be one the only "official" support book (read who has written the foreword...) It has to be cleared that this book is not the only source for reference and information for a certified Checkpoint Administrator.
