Unified Security from Code to Cloud: Check Point at AWS re:Invent

For ten years, the global cloud community has come together at AWS’s flagship conference, AWS re:Invent, to meet, get inspired, and rethink what’s possible. AWS invites you to join them again this year, November 28th to December 2nd, in Las Vegas—and Check Point is proud to sponsor this year’s event! The event is both in-person and virtual this year, so register today!

Here are four key Check Point highlights you don’t want to miss at this year’s AWS re:Invent conference:

1. Code-to-cloud security strategies that can foster further innovation on AWS

The latest innovations on AWS have made it easier for businesses to accelerate their digital transformation and have created strong differentiators, but keeping applications, data, and workloads secure from code to cloud is a key component for success. Join Cloud Security Architect Marlon Chung as he leads you through a code-to-cloud security journey: automation, the four C’s, serverless security, and measuring success. Catch our session “How code-to-cloud security encourages innovation on AWS” on Wednesday, November 30 at 1:25 PM PST in The Venetian’s Lightning Theater 1 (Session ID PRT010).

2. New technologies that protect against misconfigurations, lock down your pipeline, and apply context to cloud security

The cloud has revolutionized the ways in which development teams work, and security teams strive to keep up at the same velocity and scale. With the exponential increase in distributed assets, changes occur at a rapid pace, and different teams are not always aligned with security guidelines needed throughout the development lifecycle. To address these challenges, Check Point is expanding its CNAPP capabilities in the CloudGuard offering to include:

  • Cloud Infrastructure Entitlement Management (CIEM)
  • Agentless Workload Posture (AWP)
  • Effective Risk Management (ERM)
  • Pipeline security

These new additions to the CloudGuard CNAPP suite truly shift CNAPP left through a prevention-first approach—providing more context, smarter security, and faster time to remediation. Come check out these latest enhancements for yourself at the Check Point booth.

3. Network Security just got an “easy button”: How cloud-native, consumption-based security gateways can help increase efficiency

Network security capabilities—firewall, threat prevention, and more—are crucial to protecting workloads of all kinds, from on-premises datacenters to the AWS cloud. But management of these systems can be resource-intensive. Now, network security can be delivered in an as-a-service model!  Our upcoming Check Point CloudGuard Network Security-as-a-Service offering maximizes operational efficiency, simplifies setup and configuration, and reduces security overhead. Built with Check Point’s firewall and threat prevention capabilities (a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for 22 years running!), the new as-a service offering deploys security gateways easily and intuitively, providing advanced threat prevention plus elastic, scalable cloud network security. Automated at the speed of DevOps, it enables unified security management from a single pane of glass. We are continuing to look for early availability customers, so apply here today and make sure to talk to one of our cloud security experts at the booth.

4. Detect suspicious EC2 instances—and learn to mitigate those threats!

In a customized AWS Jam session, learn how to mitigate potential threats through the power of CloudBots—gain visibility into invalid EC2 instances and more! In Check Point’s immersive learning experience, “The Ring Thing: Based on a true story,” your teams can gain hands-on real-world scenarios in live AWS environments! Up-level your threat hunting skills and uncover the hidden threats in your EC2 instances. Come discover The Ring Thing on Wednesday, November 30 from 10 AM to 6 PM and Thursday, December 1 from 10 AM to 4 PM!
