Realizing that status quo security is inadequate, many enterprises find themselves adding a disparate mix of new security technologies from a variety of vendors. These point tools often provide an incremental advantage in one area, but each must be managed individually, including reporting, provisioning, configuration and testing tasks. Check Point offers a comprehensive solution, with:
• A full range of interoperable threat prevention blades
• Common policy management and monitoring
• Maximum protection from emerging threats
Growing complexity in security infrastructure puts a huge strain on the efficiency of the security organization. Operators must constantly update firewall policies, build and provision new network resources and test the effects of changes on the network at large. Worse, the data they need to monitor is scattered in different silos. But with a single, consolidated view of the security infrastructure, security professionals can do more work with less stress and redundancy, thus reducing operational expenditures.
Consolidation and integration of multiple security appliances using a Next Generation Threat Prevention methodology results in greater efficiency and lower costs. According to an analysis by Lippis Consulting in 2015, Next Generation Threat Prevention from Check Point is one-half to one-third the cost of multi-vendor security implementations.
When you move computing resources and data to public clouds, security responsibilities become shared between you and your cloud provider. The loss of control moving applications and data out of the enterprise to a cloud provider—such as Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure—along with the lack of consistent monitoring and governance of those resources creates a variety of new security challenges. This is especially true due the anonymous, multi-tenant nature of the public cloud.
At the same time, many organizations are deploying hybrid clouds for better control and protection of sensitive assets, while outsourcing non-critical workloads to public clouds. The increased use of hybrid and public cloud services has driven more and more data to areas traditional security does not reach. As a result, protection of that data as it moves back and forth from the enterprise to public and hybrid cloud networks becomes a key challenge.
Check Point vSEC delivers advanced threat protection and single pane of glass management for easily extending security to protect your data and assets in public and hybrid cloud environments.
As enterprises adopt software-defined networking and private cloud architectures, the increased agility and efficiency has been a boon to the business, but has led to dramatic increases in network traffic going east-west within the data center. This shift in traffic patterns introduces new security challenges. With few controls to secure east-west traffic, threats can travel unimpeded once inside the data center. What’s more, traditional security controls cannot keep pace with the dynamic nature of virtual environments where applications are constantly provisioned in and out.
Check Point vSEC seamlessly delivers advanced threat protections to private cloud infrastructure and provides the visibility and control to effectively manage security in both physical and virtual environments–all from a single unified management solution.
Most corporate laptops and PCs store proprietary data on their hard drives, and many users regularly work outside of a secure corporate environment. A data breach from a lost, stolen or compromised laptop can result in costly fines, lawsuits and lost revenue. Full Disk Encryption secures the entire hard drive. Media Encryption and Port Control secure removable media. Capsule Docs enables organizations to seamlessly protect documents, ensuring access for authorized users only. Remote Access VPN provides secure access to corporate resources when traveling or working remotely.
Threats from malware like viruses, worms and bots change constantly. Users are targets of phishing emails that may contain links to websites infected with this malware. To prevent these new and emerging threats, IT departments need comprehensive security even on endpoint devices no matter where they go.
With Check Point SandBlast Agent, security teams can now defend end-user systems against zero-day threats, bot communications with Command and Control servers and other advanced attacks
Check Point Anti-Malware and Application Control further help to efficiently detect malware with a single scan and make sure only approved software programs are running on end-user systems.
In addition, Check Point Firewall and Compliance Check protect endpoints by monitoring inbound and outbound traffic and ensuring policy compliance.
Check Point Endpoint Policy Management gives security administrators the power to enforce, manage, report and educate users with one console. With a customizable management dashboard, administrators have maximum visibility into the specific security areas important to the organization. They can take the steps to deploy and remediate endpoints to ensure compliance with company policy.
The forensics capability within SandBlast Agent provides security teams with a deeper understanding of security events by providing a comprehensive view of the full attack lifecycle, collecting actionable data on events, and accelerating remediation to limit any damages.
We believe the key to managing security complexity is to bring all security protections and functions under one umbrella. With R80, security consolidation is fully realized:
• One Console: a single platform manages the entire IT infrastructure – from the data center to private/public cloud deployments – for security efficiency and consistency.
• Unified Policy: Policy management is unified so you can create and monitor these policies harmoniously. One single policy manages your users, devices, applications, data and networks. With this unified policy, you also get unparalleled granular control over policy.
R80 makes it easy to align security to IT processes and systems:
• Trusted integrations: The R80 API makes it easy to integrate securely with orchestration, change management and ticketing systems. With the ability to control exactly what that integration can and cannot do, organizations have the confidence to embed security into their IT ecosystem.
• Automated operations: Routine tasks can be automated and delegated, freeing up security teams from repetitive tasks to focus on strategic security tasks like incidence response.
Organizations need a single visual dashboard for event analysis, threat monitoring and mitigation to ensure full visibility into threats across the network. Data must be collected from all gateways deployed and correlated with external threat intelligence sources to provide contextual information.
• Risk Managers are able to look at high-level alerts, drill down to specifics and analyze correlated data.
• Turn on automated responses, stop attacks.
• With proactive threat mitigation, you can fine-tune defenses and anticipate the next attack.
