Security Best Practices

At the heart of the Compliance Software Blade are hundreds of best practices that define and recommend the optimal configuration for the Check Point Software Blades and management settings.  The Compliance Software Blade constantly monitors the compliance status of the organization, enabling network security managers to quickly assess the strength of the current policy settings and where improvements are needed.  All best practices have been defined by Check Point security experts

Best Practices

Security Analysis

Understand the strength of your security configuration

Monitor the performance of specific gateways and software blades within your network. Security administrators can preform comparisons across the network and see which products are configured properly according to Check Point best practices

Automated Security Alerts

Automatic security alerts are generated by configuration changes to other Check Point Network Security Software Blades, which negatively impact the overall security status.  Alerts highlight potential security and compliance violations, reducing the time required and errors associated with manual compliance management.  Compliance alerts notify users of the impact of their security decisions and brings regulatory considerations into the forefront of security management.

Integrated into Check Point Software Blade Architecture

The Compliance Software Blade is fully integrated into the Check Point Software Blade Architecture.  It is the only compliance product that can be automatically and natively implemented with Check Point. The Compliance Software Blade can be easily activated on existing Check Point Security Gateways and Management Servers, saving time and reducing costs by leveraging existing security infrastructure.

Regulatory Compliance

The Compliance Software Blade provides a clear overview of security compliance position and enables the monitoring of multiple regulations in a single view. Regulations are broken down into the individual requirements and mapped to Check Point’s library of security best practices.  As a result, each regulatory requirement is translated into a set of security configuration settings, allowing network security managers to focus on security while improving compliance and providing detailed audit-ready compliance reports with a simple click.

Regulatory Compliance

Recommendations and Action Management

All security best practices have corresponding recommendations, assisting security managers in understanding what actions need to be taken to improve compliance and security. The Compliance Software Blade enables effective management of actions and recommendations, and facilitates the prioritization and scheduling of action items.
