Welcome to Check Point Jump Start training series.
00:00
Checkpoint CloudGuard is a suite of products and
00:00
solutions that can secure
00:00
your data and virtual networks in the Cloud.
00:00
Yes, training video series,
00:00
we'll be looking at CloudGuard posture management.
00:00
Before exiting this lesson,
00:00
I promised a bonus video.
00:00
In this bonus video,
00:00
let's do a whole training module summarization.
00:00
You can skip this video if you like.
00:00
But I just wanted to go over
00:00
and recap all the knowledge that
00:00
we've learned in the last four videos in this series.
00:00
We started off in lesson 1 and
00:00
discussed what is posture management.
00:00
We defined what a posture management solution is.
00:00
We started our first lesson with a network analogy.
00:00
This analogy hopefully helped us
00:00
clarify the difference between what
00:00
is CloudGuard network security
00:00
and what is CloudGuard Posture Management.
00:00
The main goal obviously being what
00:00
is posture management solution.
00:00
In this video, I wanted to introduce
00:00
you to what posture management is.
00:00
We mentioned that posture management
00:00
refers to a set of tools and
00:00
techniques to give you
00:00
an overall security assessment of your network.
00:00
We mentioned that posture management is about
00:00
monitoring and management of your assets.
00:00
We also mentioned that posture management is
00:00
about enforcing security guidelines.
00:00
We also mentioned that posture management solution
00:00
needed to address four core tasks.
00:00
Inventory, it needs to keep a centralized list of
00:00
all your Cloud assets and for multiple Cloud providers.
00:00
Visibility, we needed to
00:00
identify where all the assets are
00:00
located and which of
00:00
those assets are publicly accessible.
00:00
Compliance, we need to make sure that we're compliant.
00:00
We need to make sure that all of our assets
00:00
are adhering to industry regulations.
00:00
Security, we need to make sure
00:00
that all our traffic and networks and
00:00
links and workloads are secure
00:00
and the whole perimeter access is also secure.
00:00
In Lesson 2, we talked
00:00
about some of the Cloud security challenges.
00:00
We discussed what are the some of
00:00
the top security challenges when you're
00:00
moving your assets into the Cloud.
00:00
In this lesson, we elaborated a little bit more
00:00
what are some of the top key Cloud security challenges?
00:00
We discussed how a posture management solution
00:00
needed to address and solve these challenges.
00:00
Securing your assets in the Cloud is very
00:00
challenging because of the scale
00:00
and rapid development of the Cloud.
00:00
Organizations need the right tools and
00:00
technologies to empower them
00:00
to guard against cyber criminals.
00:00
Your posture management solution
00:00
needs to be a centralized solution.
00:00
In essence, you need to have
00:00
one comprehensive index of all your Cloud inventory in
00:00
one centralized location in order to keep track and
00:00
identify and monitor and manage all your Cloud assets.
00:00
Your posture management solution
00:00
needs to be an adaptive solution.
00:00
In the rapid ever-changing Cloud environments,
00:00
an adaptive visibility solution is a must have.
00:00
Any changes in the cloud needs to be continuously
00:00
updated in real time or as
00:00
close to real-time as possible.
00:00
Your posture management solution must also help enforce
00:00
industry compliance and help meet federal regulations.
00:00
Your posture management solution
00:00
also needs to make sure that you're
00:00
following the most up-to-date security best practices.
00:00
Your posture management solution needs to help
00:00
you understand the level of exposure
00:00
that your assets have to
00:00
the Internet and its need to show you
00:00
the full context of the traffic flow
00:00
and these needs to be also done in real time.
00:00
Your posture management solution
00:00
needs to be able to identify
00:00
any misconfigurations and also
00:00
be self-healing with a simple click of a button.
00:00
Your posture management solution also needs to
00:00
work with multiple Cloud providers.
00:00
We also have remediation.
00:00
Your posture management solution needs
00:00
to fix issues automatically.
00:00
For your peace of mind,
00:00
you need a proactive solution to help
00:00
you keep one step ahead off the attackers.
00:00
Think of these as checkboxes that
00:00
your posture management solution should be able to do.
00:00
Checkpoint clarity guard posture
00:00
management solution checks
00:00
each of these checkboxes.
00:00
In lesson 3, we introduce
00:00
the viewer to our very own checkpoint,
00:00
Cloud security posture management solution,
00:00
which we call CloudGuard Posture Management,
00:00
also formerly called Dome9,
00:00
which was a checkpoint acquisition in 2018.
00:00
In this lesson, we defined what
00:00
CloudGuard Posture Management solution is.
00:00
The CloudGuard Posture Management needs to support
00:00
multi-Cloud service providers using API calls,
00:00
the Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services,
00:00
the Google Cloud platform, Kubernetes,
00:00
and more are forthcoming in the foreseeable future.
00:00
Using a single unified console,
00:00
we can keep track of all your
00:00
Cloud and multi-Cloud assets
00:00
in one centralized location.
00:00
The CloudGuard native console is
00:00
the graphical interface to all of your Cloud assets.
00:00
Using the single console,
00:00
you can get access to
00:00
the visualization tool called clarity to
00:00
view and edit all your Cloud assets
00:00
and to help you identify your attack surface.
00:00
We offer right out of the box
00:00
over 50 major compliance frameworks to make
00:00
sure that your Cloud is as secure as can be.
00:00
We have over 2,400 built-in
00:00
best-practice rules to help you achieve optimal security.
00:00
We also offer IAM protection to
00:00
protect your organization against identity theft.
00:00
We also offer tamper protection,
00:00
which makes sure that your Cloud adheres
00:00
only to your approved gold standard configuration.
00:00
Finally, checkpoint CloudGuard also
00:00
offers tools to help organizations
00:00
new automatic remediation tools like
00:00
the GSL that makes scripting a breeze.
00:00
Tools like Cloud box that are able to
00:00
identify issues and fix them automatically.
00:00
Lesson 4, how CloudGuard Posture Management works.
00:00
This was our final lesson,
00:00
and so we discussed how it all functions.
00:00
We discussed a bit how the architecture
00:00
works and also demonstrated how to get started.
00:00
We discussed that CloudGuard Posture Management solution
00:00
is a checkpoint SaaS solution.
00:00
It's an agentless solution,
00:00
meaning that no software or
00:00
a client agent needs to be installed on your PC,
00:00
nor either in your Cloud service providers accounts.
00:00
All you need is a PC with a browser.
00:00
All you need to do is login to your browser,
00:00
to your CloudGuard account,
00:00
which opens the CloudGuard native console.
00:00
Then you need to onboard your accounts from
00:00
your Cloud or multi-Cloud if you have them.
00:00
Then it uses API protocols to call
00:00
the Cloud metadata using API requests.
00:00
Once you have on-boarded all your Cloud accounts,
00:00
the CloudGuard native console will start
00:00
populating with all your Cloud assets.
00:00
After that, any changes in
00:00
your Cloud will incrementally be refreshed in
00:00
your Cloud console within
00:00
a certain time interval depending on what
00:00
assets have been added, deleted, or edited.
00:00
Finally, I'm going to leave you with final thoughts.
00:00
At the beginning of this training,
00:00
we discussed a few objectives
00:00
and the goals for this training.
00:00
I wanted to help you understand what
00:00
CloudGuard Posture Management solution
00:00
is and why it is
00:00
the best Cloud security solution in the industry.
00:00
Also what makes us the global leader in Cloud protection
00:00
and why checkpoint CloudGuard
00:00
should be your solution of choice.
00:00
I hope I was able to
00:00
deliver on all these objectives in this video.
00:00
That brings us to the end of this lecture
00:00
and also this is the end of this video series.
00:00

00:00

00:00
I want to thank you once again
00:00
for joining me in this training video.
00:00
I hope to see you in the next
00:00
jumpstart training video series.
00:00
Until then, so long and bye for now.
