Features

Get the essential support and expert guidance you need for a rapid, predictable and successful implementation.

Your Check Point consultant will develop a Software Blades Architecture Diagram specific to your installation, create a comprehensive Pre-installation Checklist and Implementation Plan, then work side-by-side with your teams to install, configure, and verify the deployment and ensure all goals are met.

We document the final configuration, including step-by-step descriptions of the implementation process.

We will back up your configuration and provide detailed instructions to restore your system to its original state.

1. Design
We start by assigning a Check Point consultant to understand your security needs, network environment, and business goals in implementing the Software Blades. Then we develop an implementation plan with clear tasks, responsibilities, and milestones that meet your requirements for success.

2. Test
Testing is a valuable opportunity to identify and mitigate any risks with the actual implementation to ensure a smooth, successful deployment. We collaborate with you to adjust security policies, compress deployment time, and test all procedures for a problem-free deployment.

3. Deploy
We schedule deployment only after all potential risks have been resolved to your satisfaction, creating final packages to quickly and efficiently deploy the Software Blades. We remain onsite during the deployment to closely track progress and to resolve any issues that may arise. Our primary goal is a problem-free deployment.

4. Tune
Once your Software Blades are successfully deployed, we advise you on maintenance and troubleshooting best practices to educate your team with essential security management knowledge. We identify key features to realize the full potential of your Software Blades, and we optimize your existing systems for maximum results and ROI.

Planning is critical for success. Our consultants will determine the best path for each customer based on several upgrade choices. After designing the best platform architecture, we create a high-level upgrade plan for previous-to-current versions of Check Point products.

Validation of upgrade procedures according to the plan with sanity tests, timing activity and roll-back plans. Your consultant will also provide instructions about how to restore your system to its original configuration.

A Check Point consultant will be physically present during the cutover window (with our partner/distributor when applicable) to ensure your upgrade is timely, efficient, and according to the plan. We will provide a sign-off report that meets your requirements and details the Upgrade.

Following the execution of your Upgrade, we help monitor the environment to validate its productivity before applying further changes.
