For all the changes that this year delivered, one thing held true for IT teams: lack of time. In fact, almost 30% of IT pros believe that simple lack of time is the main obstacle preventing rapid incident detection and response. Further amplifying this challenge is the sheer complexity of the environments being managed, with most enterprise infrastructure hosted in multiple, often siloed environments, including on-premises, public cloud, private cloud, and commercial data centers.

Suffice to say, many security teams are having a hard time keeping up with daily alerts, let alone making time for strategic initiatives. In September, Forrester reported that enterprise security teams are “drowning in alerts,” with the average security-ops group receiving more than 11,000 daily.

Between increasing alerts and siloed management tools – IT teams are spread thinner than ever, placing further importance on solutions that make short work of ever-expanding workloads. That’s where Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI)’s partnership with Check Point Software comes in.

Oracle and Check Point, saving you time

Check Point Software Technologies is a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions to enterprises globally. They have partnered with Oracle to deliver a best-in-class experience for customers looking to quickly and consistently extend Check Point’s advanced security protections to their OCI environments, dramatically simplifying security management across private, hybrid, and public cloud networks.

Modern enterprises typically employ disparate management solutions throughout their environments, with the average enterprise using no fewer than 20 different monitoring and observability tools across their infrastructure, applications, and services. This juggling act results in a lack of consistent policy enforcement and the potential for exploitation. Check Point CloudGuard Network Security (CGNS) delivers unified, consistent defense-in-depth across both on-premises and cloud networks. Policy management is streamlined with centralized configuration and monitoring of both cloud and on-premises environments, allowing for a consistent security footprint for all corporate data. Hybrid cloud workload traffic is logged and can be easily viewed within the same, centralized dashboard as logs from your physical infrastructure, ensuring that the right level of protection is applied across cloud and physical networks, streamlining management tools and ultimately, saving you time.

Fully integrated security includes the following features:

  • Firewall, intrusion prevention system (IPS), antivirus, and anti-bot technologies: Protect services in the cloud from unauthorized access and prevents attacks.

  • Application control: Helps to stop application-layer denial of service (DoS) attacks and protect hybrid cloud services.

  • Data loss prevention: Protects sensitive data from theft or unintentional loss.

  • Identity awareness: Offers granular visibility of users, groups, and machines.

  • SandBlast zero-day protection: Provides the most advanced protection against malware and zero-day attacks.
