Azure Virtual WAN is an overlay network that provides optimized and automated branch connectivity to, and through, Azure.
If your cloud strategy is Microsoft, then Azure Virtual WAN complements your cloud adoption with cloud connectivity.
Check Point’s CloudGuard Connect fills in the missing piece by securing that connectivity and applying our market-leading threat prevention.
With this integration, the Check Point enforcement nodes sit within the same data center as your Azure WAN connectivity hubs. This ensures that you get Check Point security without taking a detour at the network path.
How do I start:
- From Azure Portal, select Check Point as your security provider
- From Check Point Infinity Portal, select to sync your sites with Azure Virtual WAN by providing API-based access (service principal) to your Azure Portal
- That’s it – any traffic marked as secured at Azure Virtual WAN results with CloudGuard Connect automatically being deployed. You're done!
There is no need to “resync” or “reconnect” every time you choose to secure another path.
The Sites page at CloudGuard Connect becomes a read-only reflection of the deployed security enforcement points.
You can centralize your connectivity settings at Azure Portal and your security policy and event handling at Check Point Infinity Portal.
