Protecting Small Businesses from Massive Attacks: Check Point Infinity Recognized by Gartner

Seven Straight Years of a Leader in Gartner’s UTM Magic Quadrant


Small and medium sized businesses have a target on their backs – cyber criminals have hacked over half of all small and medium sized businesses’ websites, as the average SMB’s website, on average, faces 44 attempted attacks every day.


Meanwhile, the vast majority of small businesses have two or less dedicated cyber security staff, and allocate less than ten percent of their IT budget to security. If we can’t change this understaffed and underfunded reality, we might as well offer the most comprehensive, intuitive, and effective security suite on the market, empowering small businesses to make the most of their resources.


Which is why we’re proud to announce, that for the seventh straight year, our unified threat management (UTM) offering – the Check Point Infinity architecture – has been named a Leader in Gartner’s 2018 Magic Quadrant for UTM products.


We are deeply honored by the recognition as we strive to protect organizations, of all sizes, against modern-day, multi-vector, mega-scaled fifth-generation cyber attacks. With a comprehensive suite of solutions for SMB and enterprises, Check Point Infinity delivers the most innovative and effective security across all network segmentations, thanks to:


  • The most advanced threat prevention: continuing to innovate and enhance anti-ransomware and CPU level emulation capabilities, improving performance, prevention and protection against zero-day exploits
  • Completeness of security vision: protecting small to midsize enterprises against even the most sophisticated attacks with a comprehensive product portfolio including Next Generation Firewalls and a focused SMB strategy providing multiple UTM models supporting Internet, VDSL and 4G/LTE interfaces with built-in routing capabilities to the enterprise
