Ridgefield Park, New Jersey, UNITED STATES


LAS VEGAS, Nov. 29, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AWS Re:Invent -- AlgoSec, the leading provider of business-driven security policy management solutions, today announced the integration of AlgoSec’s Security Management Solution with Check Point’s vSEC for Amazon Web Services (AWS) to enhance security, business agility and compliance across public and hybrid cloud environments.

This integration gives customers advanced threat prevention capabilities of Check Point’s vSEC coupled with AlgoSec’s holistic visibility, automated security policy management and reporting across AWS and on-premise workloads.  Key benefits include: 

  • Identify and troubleshoot application connectivity issues in seconds, with complete visibility of both AWS Security Groups and Check Point vSEC security policies
  • Proactively ensure correct routing across the entire enterprise infrastructure, including AWS Security Groups, Check Point vSEC instances and other firewalls, through advanced network simulation capabilities
  • Single pane of glass for end-to-end network security policy management across cloud, SDN and on-premise networks
  • Comprehensive risk analysis and audit-ready compliance reporting for the entire network

“Managing cloud security is challenging:  the environment is dynamic by nature, which makes it difficult for network and security teams to get clear visibility of their security posture,” said Itai Greenberg, Head of Cloud Security at Check Point.  “The integration with AlgoSec, a longstanding Check Point partner, enables truly holistic security policy management, troubleshooting and reporting across on-premises and cloud workloads.  This makes it easy for our joint customers to ensure that their AWS environments are configured correctly to ensure business continuity while protecting against sophisticated attacks.”

“It’s critical that enterprises have complete visibility across their on-premise and cloud environments, and the ability to consistently manage policies to ensure successful application delivery, business continuity, and robust security,” said Anner Kushnir, VP Technology at AlgoSec.  “Through this integration with Check Point we are making these processes easy - combining vSEC’s advanced protections with AlgoSec’s end-to-end visibility, management and automation capabilities.  This enables customers to take full advantage of AWS’ elasticity, while ensuring that their applications remain fully secure and compliant.” 

The AlgoSec Security Management solution intelligently automates and orchestrates network security policy management, to make enterprises more agile, more secure and more compliant. Through a single pane of glass, users can auto-discover application connectivity requirements, troubleshoot problems, proactively analyze risk from the business perspective, and rapidly plan and execute network security changes – all with zero-touch and seamlessly orchestrated across on-premise, SDN and public cloud environments.

Check Point vSEC for AWS extends advanced threat prevention to protect customers’ data and services in Amazon’s cloud, while enabling secure connectivity across cloud and on-premises environments.  vSEC complements cloud security controls to seamlessly secure assets in the cloud with elastic scalability, integrating with AWS infrastructure services.

AlgoSec and Check Point will be demonstrating the integrated solution at the AWS re:invent conference in Las Vegas, at AlgoSec’s booth #1539, and at Check Point’s booth #125.
