Cloud Security: stringent requirement for Telco players


In a complex context, we migrated the security infrastructure of a leading Italian service provider with a disruptive technology change that saw the pervasive adoption of Check Point technology. The implementation took less than two months and the entire project was a success story for the client and the Italtel team.


The project consists in the renewal of the data center security firewalls and the redesign of the perimeter cybersecurity of the operator's Cloud application domains, with the adoption of Check Point solutions, the transfer of the security functions to three different cloud environments (AWS, Azure, Google) and the creation of a Check Point Management System (MDS) in Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). Italtel performed all the activities related to the overall system integration of the project.


Cloud Security for Telco PlayersThe objective of this project is the protection of application domains located at large Cloud Providers.

Thanks to the update of the data center firewalls and the deployment of a new virtual perimeter firewalling architecture, we have accompanied the customer on the path to fully reach it.


The existing technology in the data centers was replaced with Check Point technology in Maestro configuration, the most innovative among those offered by the American vendor, characterized by simplicity of implementation, management and high scalability. However, it was not just a technological or hosting change, but a real Refactoring (or Re-Architecting).

The functionality of the existing firewalls has therefore been redesigned, in order to take advantage of the potential of the cloud and of Check Point technology, also including new features such as auto-scaling. The result obtained made it possible to fully exploit all the potential of the cloud, combined with the innovation of the Check Point platform.


For the perimeter cloud security component, the solution makes it possible to raise the level of protection of operational workloads and allows each Cloud island at the various Cloud Service Providers to have maximum operability and protection compared to the others and to the on-premise cloud at the provider’s sites.


Italtel carries out the activities related to the overall system integration and provides engineering services for activities ranging from the assessment to the design of the on-premise and cloud project, from the redesign of the cloud network topology to the architecture design, from delivery to project governance, from after-sales services to on-the-job training to operator personnel.


We are extremely satisfied with this result, an important milestone in our relaunch and renewal process – commented Fabrizio La Paglia, Head of Telco, Media & Cloud Business Unit at Italtel. – “Cybersecurity is a strategic area for us and this project, highly innovative as the creation of perimeter cloud security in several areas in the Telco & Cloud world, further strengthens our role which combines the best technologies with our know-how and experience in management of complex projects with a highly reliable and specialized team”.


Italtel, an ICT multinational with long experience in infrastructures, which designs and implements solutions and services for digital transformation, works with highly prestigious partners such as CheckPoint, a global leader in IT security solutions, named leader by Gartner in 2022 in Magic Quadrant for Firewalls.
