CERTIFIED INTEGRATION:

Ansible and Check Point

Check Point Enables DevSecOps

Security veterans have been urging organizations of all sizes to implement security processes earlier in the software development lifecycle (SDLC) to improve the effectiveness of both application and operational security. The move to DevSecOps presents a unique opportunity to finally make security ‘shift left’ of the SDLC process chain, because with this methodology, improvement of all types is continuous. There is no ‘end’ of development to tack security onto, so the only way it is going to effectively be implemented into the flow is if it is embedded throughout.

Check Point has developed Ansible modules, enabling customers to automate their response and remediation practices and embrace the DevSecOps model to accelerate application deployment with operational efficiency.

 

Integrate security into the devops model

Integrating through application programming interfaces (APIs) in Check Point, the Red Hat® Ansible® Automation Platform provides a framework for codifying processes into an automated workflow, freeing SOC and IT security teams to concentrate on more critical tasks. Use cases include automating security response to threats and the deployment and maintenance of both physical and virtualized next-generation firewalls.

 

Solution Benefits

  • Agentless enterprise security automation lowers initial set up time 
  • Idempotent modules ensure nodes are configured the same every time 
  • Modules are available in the easy to understand YAML language 
  • Dev operations happen at the touch of a button using Ansible Tower

To move faster and work more efficiently, organizations are deploying a variety of workloads across multi-cloud and hybrid environments.  However, organizations now need to manage the risk associated with business-critical data and services scattered across a distributed infrastructure.  All the while managing tools that differ significantly from one cloud platform to another.

Another complexity is the need to work within a shared security model with cloud providers, understanding  the responsibility of securing the cloud environment is shared between the cloud vendor and the customer.  In most cases, the cloud vendor is responsible for securing the platform itself, while the customer is responsible for securing their own apps and data. 

These complexities are potential sources of security gaps that organizations often struggle to comprehensively and consistently address.
