Project Perimeter Security Implementation

Perimeter Security and Integration with Microsoft AD

Industry: Investment Banking

Protecting our client’s infrastructure and data is of paramount importance to OOAC. The following information demonstrates how our network engineers implemented perimeter security at a client site.

Client’s requirements:

  • Perimeter Security
  • Performance
  • Gateway Anti-Virus protection
  • High availability architecture to ensure maximum uptime
  • Remote access & Site to Site VPN solution
  • Ease of deployment & Management
  • Gateway with IP filtering and NAT capabilities
Proposed Checkpoint Solution

After analyzing the client requirement statements, OOAC LLC recommended a Checkpoint UTM-1 cluster. This product would meet the requirements outlined by the client and also provide a modular & centrally managed solution. The software blade architecture of a Checkpoint UTM appliance enables the customer to customize their perimeter security needs by simply subscribing to and enabling a specific blade. This architecture eliminates the need to invest in discrete appliances and software, hence reducing the total cost of ownership.

The software blades available are :

Design

A DMZ network was introduced in the existing Network. This provided an additional Zone to host servers securely, without compromising security in the LAN. The IDS/IPS policies were configured for the servers in the DMZ to stop any threat arising from the Public network. Checkpoint provided a single console to manage the cluster and was also capable of managing multiple appliances using the central management console. A UTM-1 Cluster was integrated with Microsoft AD to validate users, improving the security level.
