This Quick Start deploys an Auto Scaling group of Check Point CloudGuard Security Gateways to protect a web service.  

Check Point CloudGuard for AWS extends comprehensive enterprise-grade security, including zero-day threat protection, deep packet HTTPS inspection, intrusion prevention system (IPS), and complete application and identity awareness, to the AWS Cloud. It protects assets in the cloud from attacks while enabling secure connectivity, and lets you enforce consistent security policies across your entire organization.

This Quick Start is for users who want to publish an automatically scaled and dynamically secured web service on AWS, defining content-level access policy, monitoring incoming requests to the service, applying IPS protections for web servers, enforcing geo-based policy, preventing malicious bots activity, and more.

When you deploy the Quick Start, you can choose to include load balancers, web servers, and a preconfigured Security Management Server to manage the Security Gateways. The deployment is automated by AWS CloudFormation templates and takes about 30 minutes.
