Getting the most from Microsoft Inspire 2022

By Paul Ardoin, Manager, Cloud Security Partner Marketing

If you’re a channel partner or seller of Microsoft and Check Point offerings, it’s time to celebrate our joint successes over the last twelve months! Microsoft Inspire, a virtual event held July 19-20, is a great opportunity for Microsoft partners to expand their Azure opportunities with security offerings from Check Point.

Check Point’s partnership with Microsoft extends back more than 20 years. Azure customers who use third-party security products–Check Point CloudGuard included—move more than 8 times as many workloads to the cloud as those who don’t. That’s why Microsoft partners who add CloudGuard to their Azure arsenal are confident in securely migrating their customers to the Azure cloud, which expands their Azure opportunities.

Check Point is a founding member of the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), and our partnership encompasses sales, marketing and technical integration. And Check Point refuses to stand still. We have more than 50 integrations with Microsoft and Azure services, and we continue to add more.

Microsoft Inspire is the place to start your journey to success with Check Point!

New technical integrations and thought leadership

We’ve added support for Azure’s Gateway Load Balancer—in fact, you can stop by our virtual booth and see a step-by-step implementation of the integration!

We’ve added support for Azure Stack HCI, securing customers who take advantage of cloud and on-prem resources working together to natively monitor and back up to Azure, protecting workloads and achieving compliance.

We keep extending our integration capabilities with Microsoft Sentinel, too. In addition to using Sentinel’s SOAR capabilities to trigger CloudGuard to automatically remediate security issues, we’ve now added the ability to add CloudGuard’s threat intelligence output to Sentinel.

And finally, don’t miss our on-demand session on how Check Point’s approach to CNAPP (cloud-native application protection platforms) significantly reduces risk on Azure.

MACC-eligible solutions on Marketplace

CloudGuard Network Security and CloudGuard Posture Management are MACC-eligible, making it easier than ever for customers to get the confidence they need to move mission-critical workloads to the cloud. These offers can help you make your customers more successful in the cloud—and positioned for success in the future.

Move more opportunities forward

Microsoft Inspire continues to be the perfect place to connect with each other and learn about new innovations to help take our joint business to the next level. Even though this year’s event will again be virtual, it’s a great opportunity to get a front-row seat for Microsoft’s vision of the coming year—and learn how Check Point can be a part of our joint success! Have a productive conference—and we’ll see you there!
