Check Point Software Technologies vSEC Cloud Security
Check Point said in August that it was extending its advanced threat protection offerings to work across any cloud platform, including VMware NSX, Cisco ACI, OpenStack, Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services. Behind that push is Check Point's R80 security management platform, which it launched in February.
"Cyberattacks can happen anywhere across your network infrastructure, whether on-premise or off-premise," said Erez Berkner, director of product management, cloud security, in a statement at the time. "vSEC cloud security with R80 Management provides powerful threat prevention, which scales as you grow in any cloud environment. Businesses get dynamic and advanced security tailored for their needs so they can confidently host their data center applications and workloads in private, public or hybrid cloud environments."
