Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. Announces Launch of New ZoneAlarm 2015 Security Product Line

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. announced the launch of its new ZoneAlarm 2015 security product line, redesigned to thwart a new generation of cyber thieves and advanced Web-based malware. The online world is filled with new attacks targeting consumers and their private data. While ZoneAlarm continues to tackle threats with its two-way Firewall and antivirus technologies, ZoneAlarm 2015 has new features to protect consumers. For the first time, advanced sandboxing technology is being offered for consumers through the Threat Emulation feature. Undiscovered threats are often hidden in email attachments and downloads; in fact, nearly one in 25 email attachments are malicious. Threat Emulation checks attachment files in a virtual cloud sandbox, and if a file is malicious, the user is alerted to delete it. The new 2015 product line also includes Enhanced Browser Protection, which scans websites for threats before malware can even reach a users' browser. Recent independent tests through AV-TEST showed that ZoneAlarm 2015 Extreme Security protected against 100% of threats in real-world testing. Previously tested competitive products protected against an average of 94% of threats. In addition to defending against online threats, ZoneAlarm 2015 also protects against the physical threats to consumer devices through the new Find My Laptop feature. A laptop is stolen every 53 seconds with Find My Laptop, users will be able to track down their lost or stolen laptops utilizing maps and tracking technologies. The feature can also retrieve files, lock down access, send a message to the thief or finder, and even take photos from the webcam.

Check Point Collaborates with VMware to Provide Network Security for the Private Cloud

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. announced that the company is collaborating with VMware to automate and simplify the provisioning and deployment of network security in private clouds. Check Point will make its security protection solutions interoperable with VMware infrastructure. As data center moves quickly down the path of virtualization, it is important for security to keep pace with virtual environments. Virtualization has greatly increased the speed at which applications can be deployed, and delivers the added benefits of agility and mobility to meet changing business requirements. Network security for virtualized environments must match this speed and agility through automated security management and provisioning, while enabling seamless support for existing security operational processes and policy. Check Point Virtual Edition (VE) is a unique security solution that provides comprehensive protections and rapid deployment of security services in virtualized environments. By closely aligning Check Point's security with VMware vSphere(R) 5.5, organizations will benefit from a fully automated security solution for a VMware virtualized environment. Virtual machines will be safeguarded through the breadth of Check Point's multi-layered security protections without changing network topology. Additionally, the interoperability of Check Point solutions and VMware vCloud(R) Suite will enable simplified and automatic virtual application protections.

Check Point Introduces Software-Defined Protection Security Architecture

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. introduced Software-defined Protection (SDP), a revolutionary security architecture that can protect organizations in fast-evolving IT and threat landscape. Software-defined Protection offers modern security that can effectively protect against threats, through a design that is modular, agile and most importantly, secure. SDP is a three-layer security architecture comprised of enforcement, control and management layers. This framework decouples the control layer from the enforcement layer, enabling robust and highly-reliable enforcement points that obtain real-time protection updates from a software-based control layer. SDP converts threat intelligence into immediate protections and is managed by a modular and open management structure.
