Cisco ASA to Checkpoint UTM Migration


Cisco ASA to checkpoint UTM migration

                                                                        By Sreedevi  K Nair


Cisco ASA’s offered discrete high-performance security services and we required an appliance which will implement security based on defence-in-depth principle. We migrated the existing Cisco ASA which was the perimeter firewall to Checkpoint UTMs based on the blade architecture The checkpoint offerings included a lot more services and also application intelligence. The checkpoint UTM appliance was installed and configured in parallel and tested for all the feature subscriptions ( IPS, IPSec VPN, Content filtering etc, ) .The checkpoint offers perfect combination of proven security, easy deployment and effective management. The UTMs were configured in a cluster for high availability. On completion of the testing phase, the Cisco ASA was de-commissioned and Checkpoint UTMs were on production. UTM’s centralized approach provides its administrators to look at the network from a wide angle view and its extensibility is an added advantage.
