Deploying a Check Point Endpoint Security Manager in Azure
While it has been possible for a while, there is now a validated supported procedure for installing Check Point Endpoint Security Management in Microsoft Azure.
Refer to the following SK: Deploying a Check Point Endpoint Security Management Server in Microsoft Azure
The reason why a specific SK exists for R77.30 is because there was no pre-built image for Endpoint management.
It required installing specific hotfixes in a specific order.
R80.20 natively supports the latest Endpoint Management features and requires no special installation procedure.
In Azure Market place i've found CloudGuard IaaS - Firewall & Threat Prevention and beneath Check Point Security Management plan. Is that the correct one for deploy a Endpoint Management Gateway? That plan corresponds to what version of Gaia?
Check Point Security Management would be correct, which is the only version that currently supports R80.20 (Gateway coming soon).
When I did the test drive, the version brought up was R80.10, not R80.20.
Will have to double-check.
OK, so I understand that we can deploy endpoint management into azure, what about just a policy server? I just want to add an additional policy server into azure for hosts there and internet accessable policy server for redundancy?
Start with the management template? will this work? Wish azure would let us to a fresh install and let us configure what we want the box to do.
