Check Point simplifies public and private cloud security

September 16, 2010

Check Point Software Technologies Limited has announced the launch of the Security Gateway Virtual Edition (VE) with VMsafe integration. The product secures the cloud with the industry's most advanced firewall and protects dynamic virtual environments from both internal and external security threats. The new Security Gateway VE is based on Check Point's Software Blade Architecture, enabling businesses to leverage the same flexible and comprehensive security solutions available on physical networks, including Firewall, VPN and intrusion prevention, to meet the special security, networking and management needs of virtual environment.

The new Security Gateway VE is designed to ensure organisations can secure inter-VM traffic and external networks with granular firewall policies and integrated intrusion prevention capabilities to protect against malicious and unwanted network activity.  In addition, organisations can automatically apply security policies to all existing or future virtual machines, without changing the network topology or experiencing downtime during live migration.

"Securing dynamic virtual environments is extremely challenging as it involves protection from external threats and inspection of internal traffic between virtual machines", said Bhaskar Bakthavatsalu, Regional Director, India & SAARC, Check Point Software Technologies. "The new Check Point Security Gateway VE provides plug and play security for virtual machines. The high levels of transparency allow administrators to monitor and protect virtual machines against malwares and malicious network activity. It also simplifies security management with unified administration of physical and virtualized environments."

With VMware VMsafe integration, Check Point's Security Gateway VE can be deployed easily and consistently across the infrastructure to achieve greater visibility and manageability. "Security remains a top priority for any company looking at deploying virtualization. By partnering with Check Point, customers benefit from a breadth of security solutions for VMware environments," said Parag Patel, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances at VMware.
