Forrester Research names Check Point Software a Leader in Endpoint Security Suites

SandBlast Agent Complete Endpoint Protection received highest possible scores in the Malware Prevention, Data Security, and Mobile Security criteria


We are pleased to announce that Forrester Research recognized Check Point as a Leader in its newly published report, “The Forrester Wave™: Endpoint Security Suites, Q2 2018”.


“Check Point offers a fully featured, traditional suite with modern updates,” the report states. “With its roots in network security, Check Point has expanded into other areas such as endpoint and mobile security over the years and today delivers an endpoint security suite that includes threat prevention, detection, data security, endpoint management, and mobile security.”


Preventing – Not Just Detecting – Cyber Attacks


Powered by leaked state-sponsored hacking tools, today’s cyber-attacks shift between vectors seamlessly while ambitiously and aggressively targeting organizations of all sizes. The fifth generation of cyber-attacks requires an equally modern, sophisticated mindset – which is why SandBlast Agent holistically delivers the highest level of advanced threat prevention capabilities for known, unknown, and zero-day threats across all endpoints.


“As organizations are now facing the fifth-generation of cyber-attacks, we are proud to be recognized as a Leader in the prestigious Forrester Wave,” said Peter Alexander, chief marketing officer, Check Point. “We view this honor as validation that organizations must approach cyber security with a prevention-first mindset to block – not just detect – attacks before they happen, while remaining one step ahead of the increasingly sophisticated threats of tomorrow.”


Drawing Upon Threat Intelligence


According to the report, “the product ships with multiple signatureless detection capabilities for malicious file/behavior, with tight integration to share policy and threat intel between the company’s endpoint, network, and cloud offerings.”


SandBlast Agent continually monitors endpoints for threats by inspecting endpoint behavior in real time and leveraging real-time threat intelligence from the central ThreatCloud database. Drawing upon a global network of threat sensors, the ThreatCloud database holds over 250 million addresses analyzed for bot discovery, more than 11 million malware signatures and over 5.5 million infected websites, and identifies millions of malware types daily.


In addition, SandBlast Agent incorporates automated forensics capabilities that provide incident analysis in an easily digestible intelligence report, allowing for a much smoother and more efficient remediation process.


SandBlast Agent uniquely prevents and remediates ransomware attacks, detect and blocks web phishing attacks and protects against advanced exploits attempts.


Main Takeaways


Today’s modern Gen V cyber attacks require unified and connected cyber-security that is capable of preventing – not just detecting – threats.  We are honored by this recognition, and we’re proud to provide cutting-edge cyber-security solutions that can handle modern, fifth-generation cyber-attacks.
