by Michael A. Greenberg, Product Marketing Manager, Security Platforms, published May 15th 2019


R80.30 ushers in a new era of security with the industry’s first threat extraction for web, providing practical prevention against advanced threats. With this new threat extraction for web, admins will no longer have to compromise on security for productivity. R80.30 Gen V Threat Prevention protects users from malicious web downloads in real-time! Threat Extraction removes exploitable content, reconstructs files to eliminate potential threats and promptly delivers the clean content to the user. This is thanks to the fastest threat emulation engines for secure delivery of files. Even more, a Threat Prevention dashboard provides full visibility across networks, mobile and endpoints. Enterprises everywhere can now increase productivity and maintain a high security posture.


However, the Threat Prevention innovations in the newest release of R80.30 do not stop here. The software release brings new Transport Layer Security Patent-Pending Technologies providing state-of-the-art SSL Inspection. This technology delivers the power to inspect SSL-encrypted network traffic across enterprises everywhere. This innovation is crucial for a strong cyber security posture considering 94% of websites today secure web traffic with HTTPS protocol1.


As Itai Greenberg, Check Point’s VP of Product Management, said, “HTTPS covers over 80% of all our web traffic, there is no getting away from the issue that SNI leaks every site you visit online to your Internet Service Provider. This paints a very clear picture of who you are since we know data collection on visited websites is happening. All of these factors invite both privacy and security risks, which we all know is a real problem”.


Rest assured, the SSL inspection and Threat Prevention capabilities of R80.30 keep organizations at maximum security with high performance and efficient operations. Security technologies that are supported with Full HTTPS inspection capabilities are: Application Control, URL Filtering, IPS, DLP, Anti-Virus, Anti-Bot and Threat Emulation.
