Maintain your security posture while deploying new applications at the rate of development. For your contemporary apps, Check Point provides fully automated lifecycle security.
Evaluate your code in build stage and use RESTful APIs to filter malicious content
Auto-deploy security into the DevOps pipeline with unified cross-platform code scanning
Security controls offering unified visibility and operational efficiency across both on-prem and cloud deployments
Time-to-market is shortened as a result of DevOps and continuous delivery strategies. Unfortunately, integrating security into the product life-cycle is difficult for the development, QA, and operations teams. They are concerned that integrating DevSecOps best practises may slow down the process. Modern DevOps models do not work with security strategies that were successful in the past. These antiquated procedures include manual security risk reviews at the conclusion of product development and quality assurance. This strategy results in considerable delays and cannot scale for current applications.
Check Point Security Solution for DevOps
DevSecOps is enabled by Check Point, allowing you to include security and compliance into the development, deployment, and operation of apps without losing agility. Teams can test, enforce security regulations, and stop threats with the help of Check Point automated DevSecOps tools. Here are four ways that DevSecOps teams can use Check Point to automate security and harden their applications:
Early in the development lifecycle, Check Point systems incorporate security and compliance protection. DevSecOps are able to detect and patch security issues early, speeding up an organization’s time-to-market, because security checks are integrated continually rather than at the end of the deployment pipeline.
Container Image Scanning
Scan container images during CI/CD, and use ongoing security scans to look for issues. If a vulnerability is discovered, the details and suggested corrective actions are communicated to the CLI tool. If additional problems are discovered, CloudGuard will halt the pipeline build and take the necessary corrective action before the problem reaches the production environment.
Automated enforcement of both regulatory and configurable security policies. CloudGuard connects with IAC templates during the deployment process to guarantee that both required and programmable rulesets are applied. In order to make sure compliance and that security policy criteria are followed, CloudGuard will execute preconfigured ruleset scans. Prior to production, CloudGuard will provide corrective actions for noncompliance issues.
Prior to going live, CloudGuard scans the code repositories and containers for exposed passwords and sensitive data. If vulnerabilities or hardcoded credentials are discovered, CloudGuard will halt the development pipeline and give the required corrective action.
By incorporating CloudGuard security into the CI/CD pipeline, vulnerabilities, malware, lax security procedures, and exposed credentials are automatically checked in container images and functions before they become serious problems. If a problem is discovered, CloudGuard will offer corrective actions so that the development cycle won’t be slowed down and DevSec teams may act promptly.
A Guide for Better Cloud Security Visibility and Forensics
Working on the SOC team can be demanding; most teams experience information overload due to the sheer volume of warnings and false positives they must monitor. According to a research by the Cloud Security Alliance, half of the questioned businesses used six or more technologies to generate unique security alerts, each of which needed to be reviewed.
This useful and simple-to-read ebook provides an overview of the difficulties that modern next-generation SOC 2.0 teams and security analysts confront, as well as advice on how to:
- Boost visibility and automate forensics and security monitoring
- Increase the mean time to detect threats and incidents (MTTD) and the mean time to respond (MTTR).
- Contextual information can be added to alarms and log analysis to speed up and improve decision-making.
- Automated reaction to minor occurrences cut down on erroneous positives more sophisticated SOC orchestration
Cloud Application Workload Protection
Security Considerations For Cloud Workloads
Applications are created using a variety of resources, including containers, serverless functionalities, dedicated physical and virtual machines, all in both public and private clouds.
All of your apps and app components are automatically and developer-friendly runtime secured by CloudGuard Workload Protection across all clouds.
