BT secures network with Check Point deployment Featured

By

UK telco and ICT services provider BT is to embed additional security capabilities into its global network, enabling customers to securely access cloud-based applications wherever they are hosted.

A newly signed agreement with Check Point Software will provide for the new embedded Cloud Firewall services as part of a range of hosted security solutions being deployed.

The deployment is based on Check Point’s 13500 series firewall technology.

According to Keith Langridge, vice president, network services at BT Global Services, as more applications and workloads move to private, public and hybrid clouds, customers require efficient and secure access over a mix of dedicated and public networks.

“As our customers progress in their journey towards cloud-based IT, the need for secured connectivity to cloud resources through the internet has become critical.

“Our vision is to help them move confidently to cloud whilst minimising the complexity, risk and cost.

BT and Check Point have a long track record of successfully working together with world leading multinational companies. Our new embedded Cloud Firewall services considerably reinforce the security credentials of BT’s cloud service integration offering.”

Langridge said embedded cloud firewall services are now available for BT Global Services customers globally as a standard solution.

This has led many enterprises to build passive networks, which are inferior in quality and ultimately limit their future growth.

Why are passive solutions considered inferior? And what makes active solutions great?

Read more about these two solutions, and how PacketLight fits into all this.
