“Check Point and AWS have released Xero from the constraints of traditional management and security practices. Together, we enable a strong, positive security culture across the business without limiting growth in any way.”
—Aaron McKeown, Head of Security Engineering and Architecture, XeroREAD MORE
“Sallie Mae protects its cloud perimeters and reports risk internally with Check Point CloudGuard. Sallie Mae has more than 100 AWS accounts and doesn’t have the capabilities to manually monitor each account individually. CloudGuard is easily scalable, provides security visibility and continuous compliance, and has become essential to report risk to Sallie Mae’s internal management team.”
—Andy Smith, Manager, Security Operations, Sallie MaeREAD MORE
Check Point delivers unified and automated cloud native security on AWS multi-cloud environments, including network security and threat prevention, security posture management, workload and API protection, cloud intelligence, and threat hunting.
It is natively integrated with Amazon Security Hub, AWS Lambda functions, VPC Flow Logs, Amazon GuardDuty, CloudWatch, and over 50 Amazon AWS services and security solutions.
CloudGuard provides DevOps teams the security that compliance demands—with the performance to keep teams moving forward. While protecting emerging threats to modern applications built on microservices, CloudGuard minimizes disruption to development processes. Integration with AWS Lambda and many other AWS native services allows enhanced security across all clouds, assets, and networks.
CloudGuard natively integrates with over 50 Amazon AWS services and security solutions, including Amazon Security Hub, AWS Lambda, VPC flow logs, Amazon GuardDuty, and Amazon CloudWatch.
Check Point CloudGuard solutions natively integrate with AWS Security Hub, providing AWS customers with better visibility into gaps in their security and compliance posture, as well as context-rich security intelligence for enhanced threat prevention. CloudGuard is also a design partner of AWS Security Hub.
AWS Control Tower allows for the creation of new AWS accounts in an AWS organization with best practices and guardrails in place that can be customized. CloudGuard can integrate with AWS Control Tower to automate the security of new AWS accounts being created. It uses the centralized logging model of AWS Control Tower to build an unified operational and security view across a multi-account environment.
CloudGuard leverages AWS Lambda for auto-remediation capability through Cloudbots. The CloudBots platform is an open source project deployed in client’s cloud environment.
CloudGuard integrates the Amazon Inspector service into its security automation framework. With CloudGuard, AWS customers can ensure that Amazon Inspector is deployed and configured correctly in large-scale environments, and continuously monitor and act on findings.
CloudGuard also presents and apply findings from/to Amazon Inspector on protected assets, allowing an overview of compliance and Inspector findings in a single pane of glass.
The integration with Amazon GuardDuty provides contextual visibility into the findings directly from the entity explorer. This allows the user to quickly identify and correlate a resource with its configuration, networking and IAM settings, as well as host vulnerabilities and detected threats – dramatically shortening the time to prioritize and investigate alerts.
CloudGuard presents findings from Amazon GuardDuty on protected assets, allowing an overview of compliance and Amazon GuardDuty findings in a single pane of glass.
CloudGuard taps into VPC flow log data and enables users to act on powerful security and operational insights based on network traffic. CloudGuard convert the VPC flow logs into cloud intelligence and contextualized insights for threat hunting and forensics in AWS. It also uses flow logs to detect malicious activity occurring within the network traffic.
CloudGuard tracks all API activity by consuming AWS CloudTrail logs and incorporates the feed into an independent third party audit. The CloudGuard audit trail provides timestamps and context of user activity for any configuration change within the AWS environment.
With CloudGuard, you can reason on Amazon CloudWatch configurations and apply all the functionality in CloudGuard’s Compliance Engine—including exclusions, continuous monitoring, alerting, and reporting—on Amazon CloudWatch configurations and events.
CloudGuard allows users to ingest findings from Amazon IAM Access Analyzer and apply all the functionality in CloudGuard’s Compliance Engine against those findings.
CloudGuard allows you to ensure that AWS Config rules are enabled and that there were no configurational changes made to AWS Config Configurations, always keeping you in compliance to your regulatory requirements.
CloudGuard leverages Amazon SNS and Amazon SQS for alerting and notifications that can be triggered from within the UI of each respective CloudGuard platform.
CloudGuard integrates with AWS Gateway Load Balancer to make it easy for customers to deploy, scale and manage cloud network security gateways to complement and enhance AWS security.
AWS Transit Gateway connects VPCs and on-premises networks through a central hub. This simplifies the design and deployment of secure cloud environments.
AWS CloudFormation enables AWS users to deploy resources on AWS via Infrastructure-As-Code. Check Point integrates with AWS CloudFormation to enable customer automation, and provides users with a broad and deep collection of CloudFormation templates to support all CloudGuard capabilities.
The CloudGuard integration with AWS Outposts allows customers to deploy the same industry-leading cloud network security and advanced threat prevention they have in their AWS cloud to their on-premises deployments. Everything can be managed with a single pane-of-glass by CloudGuard’s Unified Security Management.
