While maintaining continuous compliance, Organizations will benefit from advanced security and visibility across their entire cloud infrastructure.
A global provider of cybersecurity solutions, Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. today announces that Check Point CloudGuard would be integrated with Alibaba Cloud, the digital intelligence and technology backbone of Alibaba Group and a global leader in cloud computing and artificial intelligence. Customers of Alibaba Cloud will benefit from improved cloud network security and posture management, while other businesses will be able to use Alibaba Cloud in their multi-cloud setups.
81% of organizations adopt a multi-cloud strategy to give them the freedom to use the best possible cloud for each workload. When looking to maximize security within such an environment, organizations require visibility and ease of management, according to Gartner.
Organizations will gain superior security and visibility across their whole cloud infrastructure, including assets and workloads, as a result of the integration, while maintaining continuous compliance thanks to the ability to:
- Deploy advanced security capabilities including firewall, Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), application control, Internet Protocol Security Virtual Private Network (IPsec VPN), antivirus, threat prevention, anti-bot, and more.
- Gain visibility across their entire cloud infrastructure with a fully unified, integrated cloud native solution.
- Achieve and maintain compliance with a robust library of out-of-the-box compliance and governance rulesets, as well as easy customization with Check Point’s Governance Specification Language (GSL) builder.
Hong Choing, Head of Global ISV Ecosystem and Strategic Alliances, Alibaba Cloud Intelligence, commented, “This collaboration will benefit our customers that are looking for protection across their entire cloud infrastructure, including assets and workloads; it will also provide Check Point customers the opportunity to leverage Alibaba Cloud.”
Check Point CloudGuard Posture Management allows organizations to visualize and assess their cloud security posture across various platforms including Alibaba Cloud, as well as detect and remediate misconfiguration. Check Point is also extending its existing Check Point CloudGuard Network Security capabilities to include high availability and management for Alibaba Cloud with advanced threat prevention managed by unified security management.
“Check Point CloudGuard offers enterprises unified and automated cloud native security across multi-cloud environments. As more enterprises move to the cloud, many are looking for the best solutions to manage their security and compliance posture across their entire cloud infrastructure. Our support of Alibaba Cloud will enable them to receive advanced security and visibility while maintaining continuous compliance,” said Itai Greenberg, VP of Product Management and Product Marketing, Check Point Software Technologies.
