CloudGuard Edge

This article describes all platforms on which CloudGuard Edge is supported and will be updated as more platforms are added.


CloudGuard Edge securely connects your Branch Office to the Cloud.

Connecting branches directly to the cloud significantly increases security risks. Branches need protection against sophisticated Gen V cyber attacks. CloudGuard Edge protects branch offices on-premise with top-rated Threat Prevention, which can be deployed in minutes and managed by a unified threat prevention and access platform.

For enterprises that require on-premise branch office security for data privacy, compliance, or location requirements, CloudGuard Edge can run as a Virtual Network Function (VNF) aka Virtual Machine (VM) on SD-WAN, Universal Customer Premise Equipment (uCPE) devices, and other hypervisor platforms.

Key Benefits:

  • Secure: Top-rated threat prevention with 100% cyber attack catch rate
  • Flexible: Five minutes to protect your SD-WAN on-premise
  • Efficient: Unified security architecture reduces OpEx costs by up to 40% and CapEx by 20%
