Before moving your mission-critical workloads to the cloud, you must be confident that your apps, data, and workloads will stay secure.
Today’s cloud networks need multi-layered threat prevention to protect them from malware and other sophisticated threats. By using CloudGuard for Microsoft Azure, organizations can easily and seamlessly secure workloads while providing secure connectivity.DOWNLOAD PRODUCT BRIEF
If your cloud-hosted data must meet strict compliance and regulations standards, configuring everything properly—especially on thousands of virtual machines across hybrid or multi-cloud environments—can be complex and daunting.
Customers choose CloudGuard to add visibility of all their cloud assets, comprehensive compliance management, including automation.DOWNLOAD PRODUCT BRIEF
With numerous workloads in the cloud, visibility can be a critical issue for organizations and makes security posture management a challenge.
CloudGuard provides intelligent visibility and situational awareness of the network security for Microsoft Azure environments, and allows organizations to identify threats and anomalies even before they happen. With advanced cloud intelligence and actionable insights and alerts, security teams are able to quickly identify and remediate threats.FEATURE BRIEF
Check Point and Azure together provide true unified security for sensitive workloads, delivered everywhere at speed and scale. Check Point is one of Microsoft’s top security ISVs—because CloudGuard and Azure build on each other’s strengths to create a security posture that’s better together. CloudGuard enhances Azure’s security features and integrates with native functions of Microsoft Azure including Microsoft Sentinel, Microsoft Defender for Cloud, Azure Application Gateway, Azure Kubernetes Service, Azure Key Vault, and others. These integrations allow the functionality of both Azure and Check Point security tools to leverage each other, providing more effective, efficient results together rather than separately.
Discuss the enhanced reporting functionality when using CloudGuard with Microsoft Sentinel
CloudGuard natively integrates with over 50 Microsoft services and security solutions, including Microsoft Sentinel, Azure Security Center, Azure vWAN, Azure Stack, Azure Kubernestes Service, Microsoft 365, Microsoft Endpoint Manager, Microsoft Windows, Azure LogicApps, & Azure Functions.
CloudGuard provides a complete view of security information and incidents via log data into Microsoft Sentinel. Sentinel security orchestration automated response (SOAR) solution can also run playbooks to CloudGuard security gateways to remediate threats.
Check Point CloudGuard solutions natively integrate with Microsoft Defender for Cloud, providing Microsoft customers with better visibility into gaps in their security and compliance posture, as well as context-rich security intelligence for enhanced threat prevention.
Harmony Connect, a Trusted Security Partner in Azure Firewall Manager, protects globally distributed branch office locations or virtual networks with advanced threat prevention. With a simple configuration in Azure Firewall Manager, you can route branch hub and virtual network connections to the Internet through Harmony Connect.
CloudGuard extends advanced, multi-layered security to protect data and assets in Azure Stack from malware and other sophisticated threats. CloudGuard seamlessly follows workloads and data from Azure public cloud to Azure Stack environments, complimenting Microsoft’s native controls while also enabling consistent security policy, enforcement, logging and reporting – all from a single unified management console.
CloudGuard provides a unified view of container assets across Azure Kubernetes Service to ensure configurations are in compliance with known baselines such as CIS, Kubernetes security benchmarks, or NIST 800-190. In addition, security and compliance configurations can be built into CI/CD to automate container security during development. During runtime, CloudGuard protects the container assets using dynamic protection based on customized rules, behavioral analysis, as well as other threat intelligence models–automating protection and remediation.
Check Point provides advanced Threat Prevention, intelligent Anti-Phishing and unique Data Loss Prevention to your Microsoft 365 Cloud email, OneDrive, and SharePoint. It also provides visibility into the organization’s Microsoft 365 usage and unique Identity Protection to prevent Account Takeovers.
The integrated solution with Microsoft Endpoint Manager (formerly Intune) makes it easy to apply Harmony Mobile’s threat intelligence as an additional input into Microsoft Endpoint Manager’s device compliance settings. Once a threat is detected, Harmony Mobile immediately applies on-device protections and notifies Intune to enforce device status changes and conditional access controls to ensure that company data stays protected until the issue is remediated.
Check Point endpoint security includes data security, network security, advanced threat prevention, forensics, endpoint detection and response (EDR), and remote access VPN solutions. To offer simple and flexible security administration, Check Point’s entire endpoint security suite can be managed centrally using a single management console.
CloudGuard leverages Azure Logic App to enable Azure customers to automate common security operations. As an example, Azure Sentinel SOAR utilizes the CloudGuard Intelligence to automate incident remediations. There are hundreds of Logic App connectors which customers can leverage to automate changes on CloudGuard.
Previous architectures required significant routing overhead that was often configured manually. The Gateway Load Balancer capability allows cloud security engineers to simply point their Load Balancers to CloudGuard for traffic inspection and advanced threat prevention. This also allows easier addition of cloud network security for existing applications without the need for drastic architecture changes.
