Check Point and CBTS are leveraging their strong partnership to provide a CBTS Managed Services offering of Check Point’s CloudGuard Connect solution. Built on world-class security and award-winning management, CloudGuard Connect will benefit customers looking to secure their VMware SD-WAN infrastructure powered by VeloCloud, now part of VMWare.
CBTS and Check Point have over a decade’s worth of experience teaming together to solve customers’ complex security challenges. Their innovative partnership and dedication to protecting customers resulted in the largest Infinity Total Protection win in company history.
“CBTS has leveraged SD-WAN technologies to help our customers along their journey to the cloud and their path to digital transformation. Organizations are now facing the challenge of how to secure this new, flexible, always on network where an application can live anywhere in the world and employees can work from anywhere in the world. Check Point’s CloudGuard Connect and CloudGuard SaaS enable our customers to make the network decisions and application decisions that are best for their organization without the added difficulty of securing a malleable, distributed network. We are delivering peace of mind now along with our flexibility and convenience,” says Jon Lloyd, Director of Cloud Networking at CBTS.
“Given today’s advanced cyber threats, it is critical to protect enterprise branch offices connected to the cloud with SD-WAN. Check Point’s CloudGuard Connect is integrated with leading SD-WAN vendors in the cloud to secure branches in minutes. We’re excited to partner with CBTS to help drive enterprise digital transformation, with a special emphasis on branch office SD-WAN security,” says Erez Yarkoni, Global Head of the Telco/Cloud Division at Check Point Software Technologies.
Customers will appreciate the benefits and efficiencies that CloudGuard Connect provides, including:
- Latest and always up-to-date security
- Elastic and scalable
- Under 50 milliseconds latency with global presence
- Redundant links ensure 99.999% uptime
- APIs automate on-boarding new sites
- GRE or IPsec tunnels ensure privacy
Customers will also appreciate the simplified central management that allows Security Operations personnel to:
- See the most important threats with a single view across the entire infrastructure
- Take control of security events with real-time forensic and event investigation, compliance, and reporting
- Respond to security incidents immediately, reducing the time to remediate incidents
Because connecting branch offices directly to cloud services significantly increases the security risks, it’s time to rethink how security is delivered to remote branch offices. Check Point and CBTS provide a new approach to branch office security that is agile, cost-effective, and always up to date.
