How to get a checkpoint firewall stood up at azure?
So according to a business need looks like we have to set up a checkpoint firewall at azure, having never done this before what is the procedure to do this? Is there a detailed guide? Is it difficult to set up? Is it like a VM that needs to be setup in azure?
We have 2 management servers in cluster which are running R80.20 right now in the data center.
There are images in Azure you can deploy from the Marketplace: https://azuremarketplace.microsoft.com/en-us/marketplace/apps/checkpoint.vsec?tab=Overview
Since I don’t think we have R80.20 in Azure, you will need to be on a JHF that can manage R80.40.
Or better yet: upgrade your management servers to at least R80.40.
You can start here for a basic reference architecture: https://supportcenter.checkpoint.com/supportcenter/portal?eventSubmit_doGoviewsolutiondetails=&solut...
yes the mgmt servers are able to manage R80.40 firewalls, have 3 firewalls out of which 2 are in cluster that are on R80.40 and are being managed by the mgmt server.
