With more than half of all enterprise WAN traffic moving to and from the cloud, global businesses are moving away from legacy architectures like MPLS to SD-WAN technologies. Typically, internet traffic was backhauled across the WAN to centralized firewalls to maintain security. However, in today’s cloud-centric context, ensuring application performance over such a backhauled setup becomes a challenge. In addition, security is not scalable when the organization has globally distributed users and locations.
Enterprises require a cloud-native SD-WAN platform that integrates private connectivity, application acceleration and security without adding network complexity and costs.
Aryaka’s Global SD-WAN enables enterprises with fast global connectivity along with accelerated access to mission and business critical applications. Aryaka uses a global private network with built-in optimization and security capabilities that include a multi-layer security approach with a global private core network, fortified security on the PoPs, end-to-end encrypted tunnels, and stateful firewalls.
Unlike legacy connectivity solutions that take months to deploy, Aryaka’s Global SD-WAN can be deployed within days. It is delivered as a service, so IT organizations can consume global networking services the way they would consume SaaS applications like Salesforce and Infrastructure-as-a-Service solutions like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
Check Point and Aryaka seamlessly integrate to deliver a joint solution of enterprise-grade security with a cloud-first Global SD-WAN that offer superior connectivity, WAN Optimization, and application acceleration capabilities.
Aryaka’s SmartConnect delivers SLA-based reliable global connectivity and significantly faster application performance for enterprises, and Check Point adds a layer of advanced security controls needed for web and cloud-bound traffic.
The Aryaka Edge device (ANAP) can seamlessly forward all internet- and cloud-bound traffic directly to the Check Point CloudGuard Connect Edge cloud service or the Check Point CloudGuard Edge next-generation on-premises firewall.
Together, Aryaka and Check Point deliver a best-of-breed SD-WAN and security platform for enterprises accessing mission-critical internally hosted applications as well as those going directly to the internet for accessing cloud applications.
Security for the distributed enterprise: Aryaka Global SD-WAN and Check Point CloudGuard Connect cloud service
Challenge: Enterprises are increasingly leveraging direct internet breakouts at remote locations to provide optimal and scalable connectivity for the purposes of guest Wi-Fi or SaaS applications. This approach provides the best overall user experience, but it also creates challenges when securing an increased number of internet access points and maintaining compliance with the organization’s security policies.
Solution: The Aryaka Edge device and its native Zones Firewall capability seamlessly forwards all internet and cloud bound traffic directly to the CheckPoint CloudGuard Connect cloud service. Check Point’s security platform has highly differentiated cyberthreat prevention capabilities.
Aryaka offers a global private network with built-in optimization and security capabilities that include a multi-layer security approach with a global private core network, fortified security on the PoPs, end-to-end encrypted tunnels, and stateful firewalls.
Together, this ensures that all enterprise, web and cloud traffic obtain enterprise-grade security, irrespective of whether they are going to the Aryaka global SD-WAN or to the public internet.
NGFW as a Virtual Network Function: Aryaka Global SD-WAN and Check Point CloudGuard Edge
Challenge: Connecting branches directly to the cloud significantly increases security risks. Branches need to protect themselves against sophisticated Gen V cyber attacks.
Solution: With Aryaka SmartConnect, branch offices obtain secure and accelerated connectivity to any cloud service.
CloudGuard Edge protects branch offices on-premise with top-rated threat prevention, that can be deployed in minutes, and be managed by a unified threat prevention and access platform. Check Point CloudGuard Edge is a virtualized form factor of a next-generation firewall and CloudGuard Edge runs as a lightweight virtual machine (VM) on Aryaka’s ANAP CPE.
Secure branch office: Aryaka Global SD-WAN and Check Point next-generation firewall
Challenge: Enable direct and secure hand-off of internet traffic from the branch.
Solution: Using advanced routing policies, the Aryaka Edge Device (ANAP) automatically forwards all public internet traffic to a co-located Check Point Next-Generation Firewall appliance.
