Check Point Simplifies Cloud Security
The new Security Gateway Virtual Edition (VE) secures the cloud with the same security solutions available on physical networks.
Check Point Software Technologies' distributer SecureData Security, announced the new Security Gateway Virtual Edition with VMsafe integration. Based on Check Point's Software Blade Architecture, Security Gateway VE secures the cloud with the most advanced firewall and protects virtual environments from security threats, allowing businesses to use the same security solutions available on physical networks, according to Web Cloud Computing.
"'Protecting the network from external threats and inspecting traffic in between virtual machines are two primary challenges associated with securing virtual environments,' commented Doros Hadjizenonos, Product Manager at SecureData for Check Point products. 'The new Check Point Security Gateway VE inspects inter-VM traffic at the hypervisor level for seamless security across an organisation's environment. In addition, administrators have more transparency to prevent threats such as viruses, Trojans and key loggers from ever reaching a virtual machine.' With VMware VMsafe integration, Check Point's Security Gateway VE can be deployed easily and consistently across the infrastructure to achieve greater visibility, manageability, and enforcement of standard security policies. Now organisations have access to holistic data and greater system protection against new and existing threats in the virtual environment."
