In this course brought to you by industry leader Check Point, we will cover the innovative Maestro Hyperscale Network Security solution from Check Point Software Technologies.
Traditional firewall solutions have proven to be difficult and cumbersome to dynamically scale up to meet unpredictable traffic patterns, as seen with Denial of Service attacks, new product launches, breaking news, or other sudden increase in demand for firewall processing capabilities.
The Maestro solution allows a network administrator to leverage existing Check Point security gateway appliances, eliminating the expense of abandoning existing infrastructure. As need arises, additional security gateway appliances may be seamlessly added to the Maestro deployment, at which time existing traffic flows will be transparently reallocated as needed to include the newly-added resources to enforce your network security policies. Active/standby clusters are utilized to provide high availability, and traffic flows are distributed to all available security gateway resources to share the processing load.
This course is designed for those familiar with the Check Point Network Security solution, and will introduce the Maestro Orchestrator appliance. You will learn how to physically deploy the Orchestrator on your network, how to configure the appliance, and how to use the standard SmartConsole application to implement your security policies for your networks.
This course will also discuss how to monitor and troubleshoot a Maestro deployment, as well as explain some of the "behind the scenes" details of how the Orchestrator manages network traffic, how it communicates with security gateway appliances, and how to ensure continuous network availability by deploying redundant Orchestrator appliances.
This course provides a thorough introduction and demonstrations of the Maestro product to prepare you for the Check Point Accrediation exam, #156-412 at PearsonVUE.
