Monday, 10 December 2012

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. announces Check Point ThreatCloud Security Services, a set of new security service offerings to assist our customers in protecting their organization’s networks from the most sophisticated threats and provide expert 24/7 resources to help during any attack. These new services monitor events directly on customer security gateways, and are powered by Check Point’s revolutionary ThreatCloud security intelligence infrastructure, the industry’s largest collaborative network to fight cybercrime and deliver real-time threat data from a worldwide network of threat sensors.


ThreatCloud Security Services integrate this global collaborative intelligence and offer our customers several new services; ThreatCloud Managed Security Service and ThreatCloud Incident Response. ThreatCloud Managed Security Service continuously monitors customer networks and gateways for security events, and provides easy to understand, actionable alerts based on this specific data.  The managed security service also optimizes security by recommending and fine tuning the organization’s Threat Prevention policies. ThreatCloud Incident Response provides customers with expert assistance in real-time during critical security incidents to help businesses respond and recover quickly.

Modern networks are overwhelmed by an unprecedented level of technical complexity as a result of the explosion in data, applications and connected mobile devices.  Furthermore, attacks are becoming more advanced in nature and continue to threaten organizations’ infrastructure as IT departments struggle to keep up with an ever-changing security environment.  Security services can be a crucial addition to help alleviate resource strapped departments, increase the level of security expertise and assist in keeping up with compliance demands. As a trusted security leader, Check Point has global visibility to provide our customers with the insight and expertise to optimize security operations and deliver the most proactive security for these advanced threats.

“With the increasing level of threat sophistication and greater frequency, it can be challenging for even the best equipped security teams to stay ahead of the curve.  These new service offerings provide customers with critical security resources,” said Dorit Dor, vice president of products at Check Point Software Technologies.  “Check Point ThreatCloud Security Services are valuable, extended resources that provide around the clock monitoring of customer gateways, proactive mitigation of threats, and real-time incident response from industry-leading experts.”
