Microsoft Azure Certified? Check... Point

“Cloud computing creates tremendous opportunities for organisations to grow in a flexible and cost-effective way."

Check Point Software Technologies has announced the extension of its security offerings for public Cloud services, bringing the company’s security gateways software to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.

According to the security firm, the growth of Cloud IT infrastructure (Infrastructure as a Service) provides cost savings, elastic compute resources, less time necessary in managing IT environments and more time growing the business.

While it may be easier and cheaper to manage IT resources in the Cloud, Dorit Dor, vice president of product at Check Point, believes it is equally as important to secure both the on premise and cloud-based infrastructure.

“Cloud computing creates tremendous opportunities for organisations to grow in a flexible and cost-effective way,” Dor adds.

“As such, Check Point strongly believes in enabling this trend by offering security and access controls to protect both on premise and cloud assets.

“We’re delighted to be Microsoft Azure Certified to help our joint customers manage all of their security needs, safeguarding corporate assets across the organisation.”

Key features include an extension of security to the Cloud as Check Point’s Threat Prevention security solution can be deployed in Microsoft Azure allowing customers to deploy the full range of software blade architecture through Azure Marketplace.

The Check Point Virtual Security Gateway for Azure also supports Firewall, IPS, Application Control, and Anti-Bot Software Blades in Azure protecting the infrastructure from unauthorised access and attacks.

According to Dor, organisations can also manage their on-premises Check Point enterprise solutions through Check Point’s security management - whether the solution is physical, in the private Cloud, or in the public Cloud, the same network policies can be applied to the virtual gateway.

“Solution providers like Check Point are pivotal in the Cloud transformation,” adds Garth Fort, General Manager of Enterprise Partners, Microsoft.

“As new cloud scenarios emerge, companies like Check Point are harnessing the power of Azure and the multiple could scenarios it supports to provide their customers with innovative options that protect both on-premises and cloud-based infrastructure.”
