Check Point Software Technologies: Securing Enterprises
The cybersecurity landscape has fundamentally changed with cyberattacks and advanced security threats on the rise. Reports by leading tech companies state that hackers launch an average of 50 million password attacks every day. Moreover, as the world is moving to the hybrid environment, security continues to be a number one priority for customers, especially as businesses across the globe are in transition from remote work to hybrid. To truly meet this challenge, businesses across the industry should also transform their security architecture. Organizations require state-of-the-art, security solutions that protect applications across hybrid environments and enable agility, just like Check Point Software Technologies’ cutting-edge solutions.
Check Point Quantum Network Security provides ultra-scalable protection against Gen V cyber-attacks on the network, cloud, data center, IoT and remote users. The company’s Quantum Next Generation Firewall Security Gateways combine SandBlast threat prevention, hyper-scale networking, a unified management platform, remote access VPN and IOT security to protect you against the most sophisticated cyber-attacks. The solution not only delivers the highest-caliber threat prevention with award winning SandBlast Zero Day protection out of the box but also on-demand hyperscale threat prevention performance providing enterprises cloud level expansion and resiliency on premises. Moreover, Check Point’s R81 unified security management control across networks, clouds, and IoT increases efficiency cutting security operations up to 80%.
Next-Generation Security Solutions
Check Point gateways provide superior security beyond any Next Generation Firewall (NGFW). Best designed for SandBlast’s Zero Day protection, these gateways are the best at preventing the fifth generation of cyber-attacks with more than 60 innovative security services. Based on the Infinity Architecture, the new Quantum Security Gateway line up of 15 models can deliver up to 1.5 Tbps of threat prevention performance and can scale on demand.
Check Point Maestro introduces to the industry a new way to utilize current hardware investment and maximize appliance capacity in an easy-to manage Hyperscale network security solution to bring our networks and data center to the world of hybrid clouds. With Maestro, organizations can simplify their data center workflow orchestration and scale up their existing Check Point security gateways on demand — the same way as they can spin up new servers and compute resources in public clouds. “Maestro Hyperscale Orchestrator easily scales to secure 300% growth in retail messaging traffic.” As enterprises need data center security to perform at the speed of the network, businesses require solutions that stand out. This enable to transfer hundreds of terabytes of data in minutes instead of hours, provide low latency for high frequency financial transactions, while scaling on demand to support high growth businesses like online commerce. Check Point’s Quantum Lightspeed, the biggest network security revolution in the last decade. Quantum Lightspeed sets the standard in data center firewall security, delivering 20x better security price performance than competing solutions. Quantum Lightspeed hyper-fast firewalls deliver 5 times the security throughput, scales up to 3 Tbps per system (800 Gbps per single gateway), while delivering 3 microseconds of ultra-low latency.

Securing the Cloud
CloudGuard Cloud Network Security, part of the CloudGuard Cloud Native Security platform, provides advanced threat prevention and automated cloud network security through a virtual security gateway, with unified security management across all your multi-cloud and on-premises environments. CloudGuard provides industry-leading advanced threat prevention and cloud network security for your public, private and hybrid-clouds, as well as efficient and consistent unified security management of clouds and on-premises networks with a single pane-of-glass. Moreover, Check Point’s Cloud Security Blueprint provides architectural guidelines for designing secure public cloud deployments to enable segmentation and protect North-South and East-West traffic. CloudGuard Network Security provides consistent policy management and enforcement of advanced security protections, is automatically deployed and dynamically orchestrated into software-defined data center environments. Check Point cloud security experts wrote this blueprint with their best practices and architectures for building a secure cloud deployment. The Check Point CloudGuard platform provides cloud native security, with advanced threat prevention for all assets and workloads – in public, private, hybrid or multi-cloud environment – providing unified security to automate security everywhere. Whereas, Check Point Infinity is the only fully unified cyber security architecture that future-proofs business and IT infrastructure across all networks, cloud and mobile. The architecture is designed to resolve the complexities of growing connectivity and inefficient security. It provides complete threat prevention which seals security gaps, enables automatic, immediate threat intelligence sharing across all security environments, and consolidated security management for a powerfully, efficient security operation.
Container Security Solutions

Cloud native workloads demand cloud native security that can remain in step with DevOps. With everything automated to enable the CI/CD process it is critical that container security is automated, to ensure least privileged access and to maintain security compliance.
CloudGuard’s Container Security solution includes the ShiftLeft tool to empower DevOps to create Kubernetes containers that are automatically secure. CloudGuard provides posture management & visibility across the entire container environment, as well as container image assurance from the build to the registry, and through runtime. CloudGuard also provides an admissions controller which allows DevSecOps to easily set security policies and guardrails for cluster operations. As part of CloudGuard’s unified approach to Workload Protection, the solution powers application-first container security, with the additional capabilities of K8s native web application & API protection.
Creating Secure Environment for Businesses
Containers represent the next generation of computing platforms that are rapidly replacing traditional servers and virtual machines. Explore the new security challenges and opportunities container-based deployments bring. CloudGuard integrates into the CI/CD pipeline where it builds the container images and continuously runs securing scans, searching for vulnerabilities. If a vulnerability is found, the information is sent to the CLI tool along with the recommended remediation steps. If other issues are found, CloudGuard will stop the pipeline build with outlined remediation steps before they get to the production environment.
Since opening its doors, Check Point has been a pioneer in delivering cutting-edge solutions that is redefining the way cybersecurity works for businesses. The company will continue to create security solutions that stand out from the crowd.
