Monitoring Risk Statuses in Scalefusion dashboard

Once the integration is successful IT Admins can check the device(s) risk status in the Devices section in the Scalefusion dashbaord.

  1. Navigate to Devices section > click on 3-dots > click on Customize Table View > select the 3 columns (as shown) for the Check Point. This gives the IT Admins a quick overview of where their devices stand wrt detected risks.

  2. The following are the statuses that will help you monitor the state of the device(s).

    1. Check Point App Status: This will show if the Harmony Mobile app is published and installed on the device or not. These are:

      1. Initially Not Configured

      2. Published

      3. Installed

    2. Check Point Activation Status: This will show the Harmony Mobile app’s activation status. These are:

      1. Initially N/A

      2. Provisioned: Device is added in Infinity portal and device status is also synced with Scalefusion.

      3. Active: Device is ready.

      4. Inactive: This status is shown in case the device is offline or switched off, in which case the device does not sync, either with Infinity Portal & Scalefusion.

    3. Check Point Risk Status: This will show the risk status of the devices that are being monitored by Check Point Harmony Mobile app. These are:

      1. Initially N/A

      2. High Risk

      3. Medium Risk

      4. Low Risk

      5. Secure

  1. Based on the policies set in your Infinity Portal if the Harmony Mobile app detects any threats upon scanning the device(s), the device(s) will automatically move to the designated Quarantine groups in the Scalefusion dashboard.

  2. IT Admins can leverage the Quarantine groups created in the Scalefusion dashboard and assign Profiles that mitigates the threats for example,

    1. If Harmony Mobile app detects that the device does not have a lock screen password, the device will automatically move the Quarantine group designated for this Risk Profile, in the Scalefusion dashboard, having a Profile that would push the Passcode Policy on the device.

    2. Once the user set the password on the device, the device will be deemed safe, and it will automatically move back to its previous group.

IT Admins can define the Polices and Risk level in their Infinity Portal.

  1. IT Admins can also get a report of the device(s) risk status from Reports & Workflows section > Reports > Device Availability Report.

Frequently Asked questions

Question 1: We have done the set up on the Scalefusion dashbaord and in Infinity Portal and it shows as success, however, we do not see the Harmony Mobile app on the devices and the Check Point app status is showing as not configured.

Answer 1: If you have selected All Groups in while creating the configuration on the Scalefusion dashboard then the device(s) should be present in any one of those groups.

If you have selected specific group(s) in the configuration, then make sure that the device(s) is present in those selected groups.

Please also make sure that the respective Device/User group(s) where the device(s) are, are also selected in the UEM configuration in the Infinity Portal.

Question 2: Harmony Mobile app has been Provisioned and installed on the device(s) however the Risk Status is still showing N/A on the Scalefusion dashboard.

Answer 2: This could happen if the UEM configuration has been deleted from the Infinity Portal however the device(s) is still managed by Scalefusion.

In such a case you will need to delete the device(s) from the Infinity Portal and do a manual sync on the UEM configuration once. This should sync the latest device(s) status. Please note that the user might have to provide the permission to Harmony Mobile app once again.

Question 3: Why do I see a new app in my Play for Work apps section on the Dashboard?

Answer 3: Once the Check Point Integration is successful, the Harmony Mobile app is automatically added in the Play for Work apps section and is also automatically published to devices.

Question 4: How do we configure the SSL certificate for On Device Network Protection (ONP) feature offered by Check Point?

Answer 4: Please refer to our guide here to configure the SSL certificate.
