Check Point is the latest in a growing list of enterprise security companies to imbed their security offering within Verizon Virtual Network Services(VNS), joining Palo Alto, Fortinet, Juniper and Cisco.
Verizon's VNS-Security seamlessly extends threat prevention security across the virtual network and provides added visibility into virtual traffic to help protect against even the most sophisticated cyber-attacks, said Verizon.
It is designed to protect traffic, assets, data and workloads hosted in corporate data centers, customer locations or virtually in the cloud, protecting traffic both inside and outside the enterprise perimeter.
Companies can help secure their physical network and cloud with the same policies, simplifying security management and accelerating the secure delivery of applications.
Virtual Network Services operates on a utility based contracting and billing model; providing network functions in an "as-a-service" fashion, without the associated devices or vendor lock-ins. With Virtual Network Services, the complexity of implementing, managing and maintaining multi-vendor hardware and software solutions is simplified offering flexibility to change vendors and functionality as the needs of a business dictate.
Last year, Verizon announced that it is using Viptela’s software-defined wide-area networking (SD-WAN) platform.
