CHECK POINT ADVANCES TO THE CLOUD WITH SECURITY SOLUTION ON AMAZON WEB SERVICES

 Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. has announced its security gateways are now available to customers through Amazon Web Services, enabling organizations to extend their security to the cloud with a full range of protections, or Check Point software blades, such as Firewall, Intrusion Prevention, Application Control, URL Filtering and many more. With a few simple steps, customers can easily deploy a Check Point virtual appliance – a security gateway for virtual environments – in the Amazon Cloud to activate protections that prevent network attacks and data breaches, while enabling secure connectivity in dynamic cloud computing environments.

As the adoption of cloud computing brings enterprises many benefits, including business continuity, flexible computing power and cost savings, businesses are increasingly leveraging the cloud to spend less time managing IT resources, and more time focusing on core business objectives. To keep an organization’s infrastructure and business secure, organizations must enforce the appropriate levels of protection both on premise and in the cloud.

 

With Check Point’s virtual appliances, customers can embrace the benefits of cloud computing with confidence. Whether an organization runs their entire business operations on AWS or utilizes AWS for flexible scaling needs, customers can enable advanced security with a few simple steps, implementing a unified policy that protects all corporate assets residing in either on-premise infrastructure or in the cloud. For example, businesses, such as online retailers or educational institutions, can leverage the Amazon Cloud to run production workloads and manage seasonal peaks in web traffic and customer orders, while the Check Point virtual appliance further reinforces protection in the cloud infrastructure – ensuring all data and channels of business communication remain secure.

Organizations should plan their IT infrastructure which protect both cloud and on-premise infrastructure to ensure that all corporate assets remain secure. With Amazon Web Services, we will be able to provide better benefits of cloud computing to the customers and focusing on the core business areas. We are pleased to be working with Amazon Web Services to help our customers safeguard corporate assets and enforce consistent security policies throughout their organization”, said Bhaskar Bakthavatsalu, Regional Director - India & SAARC at Check Point Software Technologies.
