Check Point [NASDAQ:CHKP]: Automated Malware Analysis and Threat Protection

CIO VendorGil Shwed, Founder & CEO
Cybercriminals are constantly coming up with newer threats and cyberattack models that outsmart legacy security mechanisms, unleashing potential harm on corporates and other institutions. To counter these sophisticated cyberattacks, enterprises today deploy a large number of point solutions from many security vendors, largely focusing on the detection of attacks. Unfortunately, detection alone doesn't solve the problem and it is clear that today’s cybersecurity has to be dealt differently than traditional detection methods. This is where Check Point [NASDAQ:CHKP], a global network and cyber security vendor, steps in.

The San Carlos, CA based company provides enterprise class security solutions and protects its clients from cyberattacks with an efficient catch rate of malware and other types of threats. Check Point offers complete security architecture, defending enterprises’ networks and mobile devices, and providing comprehensive and intuitive security management. Check Point delivers an integrated cybersecurity platform with a focus on real-time prevention of next generation threats. The cybersecurity platform extends from the network and endpoint protection into the data center, cloud, and mobile space.

Check Point has the experience of catering its security-oriented products and solutions across many industries including retail, financial services, public and private clouds, government and federal institutions, and healthcare sectors. The enterprises in these arenas need security that is modular, agile, and dynamic. Check Point provides a Software Defined Protection (SDP) architecture that protects organizations against potential threats. SDP partitions a security architecture into three interconnected layers—enforcement, control, and management.

Mobile technology has made the network security challenge much bigger and more complex. Use of mobile devices and apps has introduced a wide range of new attack vectors and new data security challenges for IT. Using smartphones and tablets to access critical business information on the go has many benefits, but it can also expose sensitive data to risk. Check Point Mobile Threat Prevention protects iOS and Android devices from advanced mobile threats, ensuring that the firms can deploy and defend devices with confidence. Check Point Capsule is a seamless solution that addresses all the mobile security needs. Capsule provides a secure business environment for mobile device use and protects business documents across all possible endpoints.

Check Point has a prominent customer base on a global scale, including Melbourne Convention Center, Carmel Partners, and Boston Properties. On one occasion, Samsung Research America which conducts researches and builds innovative electronics for consumers and businesses, wanted to prevent compromised devices from accessing its network or enterprise data, defend clean devices on the network, and protect both iOS and Android mobile devices using a single solution. With Check Point’s mobile threat prevention—integrated with VMware’s AirWatch and Splunk SIEM—Samsung gained 100 percent protection for mobile devices and a simplified security management of IT resources.

Gil Shwed, Founder and CEO, Check Point says, “We see a healthy buying environment in cyber security,” and to keep pace with that, Check Point will continue to broaden its cybersecurity platform. With plans for expansion into more functional specific markets such as cybersecurity solutions for Internet of Things (IoT), critical infrastructure, and national security, Check Point is set to be at the vantage point, helping organizations fight malicious attacks.
