Webinar: Check Point Maestro – Hyper-scalability in Cybersecurity
Check Point Maestro is a security solution unique in the industry, in terms of its scalability, resilience and efficiency. In combination with the installation, configuration, administration and technical support services offered by Safetech Innovations, Check Point Maestro successfully meets the current cyber security challenges of medium and large companies and organizations.
Safetech Innnovations recently organized a webinar dedicated to improving cyber security and streamlining IT operations with Check Point Maestro. Hosted by Mihai Rauță, Manager of Safetech’s Security Solutions Department, the webinar included the presentation of the Check Point solution and a demonstration of the scaling capacity.
Check Point Maestro: Features and Architecture
Check Point Maestro is a modern solution that contributes to strengthen the cybersecurity and simplify its management, which provides a broad functionality that include Next Generation Firewall (NGFW), IPS, DLP, IPSec and SSL VPN concentrators, URL filtering, application control, anti – virus, zero-day protection, email security and HTTPS inspection.
Within the solution, Maestro Hyperscale Orchestrator/MHO distributes internal or external traffic across multiple Security Gateway Modules/SGMs (Quantum firewalls, for example) and manages them as a unified group by applying common security policies and configuration rules. Up to 52 security instances (SGMs) can be connected to an orchestrator, which can be assigned to security groups (Security Groups/SG) and can run various Check Point security solutions.
The solution is based on N+1 cluster load sharing and Check Point HyperSync technologies to provide resiliency and allow additional instances to be added through autoscaling functionality without service interruption. Thus Check Point Maestro can deliver, in on-premises scenarios, a level of elasticity and agility specific to cloud computing services.
Check Point Maestro is aimed at medium and large organizations, which can start with a basic format and which can grow in the future by adding Security Modules similar to the original ones or from a more recent technological generation.
The basic format, which includes at least two traffic processing modules, can be expanded up to 52 modules. This modular approach enables traffic scaling of up to 150 Gbps for a Checkpoint 6600 series security gateway or up to 1.5 Tbps for a top-of-the-line 28000 series security gateway. Moreover, if Check Point releases modules more powerful in the future, they can be added to the solution to obtain superior performance.
To see the presentation of the Check Point Maestro solution and the demonstration that captures the main configuration and autoscaling functionalities, we invite you to watch the webinar recording.
