Citrix and Check Point Forge Next-Generation Firewall Alliance

Published On: June 8, 2020Categories: Buzz, Uncategorized

Citrix Systems and Check Point Software Technologies have announced joint plans to promote the addition of Check Point’s next-generation firewalls within Citrix SD-WAN products.

“Companies have been forced to accelerate the transition of their networks to cloud and SaaS to enable better application performance and visibility and security needs to adapt with them,” said Chalan Aras, Vice President, SD-WAN and Intelligent Traffic Management at Citrix. “Together with Check Point Software Technologies, we can deliver an advanced SD-WAN solution that protects organizations as their workspaces and applications as they make the shift.”

The two companies already offer a joint solution with Citrix SD-WAN and Check Point CloudGuard. The planned integration of Citrix SD-WAN and Check Point CloudGuard Edge and Check Point CloudGuard Connect is expected to further enable distributed enterprises to automate and enhance their network and cloud protection.

Leveraging Citrix SD-WAN Orchestrator, IT organizations will be able to streamline provisioning of a wide range of multi-layer security services, build and enforce consistent access control policies, automate provisioning of Check Point CloudGuard Edge on the Citrix 1100 appliance, as a virtual network function (VNF), simplify connections to Check Point CloudGuard Connect service, and apply security zone segmentation.
