SD-WAN and Security: A Two-Pronged Approach with Check Point

Securing SD-WAN connections to the cloud is essential in helping enterprises combat today’s advanced cyber threats. VMware SD-WAN™ by VeloCloud® is a leader in setting industry benchmarks for performance, scale and security and collaborates with best of breed security providers, including Check Point. In October, VMware SD-WAN announced its partnership with Check Point, kicking off a relationship that grows stronger week by week.

Last month, VMware hosted its European flagship event, VMworld 2019 Europe, where over 15,000 attendees gathered to hear more about all things VMware. We were excited to have Check Point join us during one of our main Network Edge sessions.

Aviv Abramovich, Head of Security Service Product Management for Check Point, joined our own Sanjay Uppal, VP and GM of the VMware SD-WAN by VeloCloud business unit, on stage to talk about SD-WAN and security. To watch the presentation, click here.

Highlights from this discussion include:

  • As enterprises are moving their branch applications to the cloud, they are adopting software defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) to intelligently route traffic directly to the Internet without passing it through the data center. Connecting branch offices directly to the Internet increases their security risk and security management costs.
  • Check Point and VMware SD-WAN have partnered to jointly assure the performance and security of enterprise and cloud applications over the Internet and hybrid-WAN, while dramatically simplifying deployments and reducing costs.
  • VMware SD-WAN is the industry’s most widely deployed branch and data center connectivity platform that enables simple, agile and more secure branch connectivity for thousands of customers globally.
  • Check Point CloudGuard Connect and CloudGuard Edge on-premises and cloud-powered security services deliver top-rated Threat Prevention updated in real-time with the latest ThreatCloud intelligence, a unified management platform that can reduce operational expenses by up to 40%, and provide a seamless integration with VMware SD-WAN.
