We are pleased to announce that Forrester Research recognized Check Point’s SandBlast Agent as an endpoint security leader in its newly published report
Today’s modern IT infrastructure enables us to work freely outside our offices and network perimeter. We routinely use our endpoint devices to access the corporate email, corporate SaaS applications, and to download business documents. Without a doubt, it is an essential productivity booster that we constantly rely on; but on a security level – how safe are those endpoints?
Preventing zero-day attacks as core strategy
Powered by leaked state-sponsored hacking tools, today’s cyber-attacks shift between vectors seamlessly while ambitiously and aggressively targeting organizations of all sizes and from very different attack vectors – research states that 70% of successful breaches start on the endpoint. The fifth generation of cyber-attacks requires an equally modern and sophisticated mindset.
With capabilities to reduce the attack surface of the endpoint and provide a series of behavioral protection measures to detect, remediate and prevent incoming zero-day threats, SandBlast Agent Advanced Endpoint Protection incorporates a number of core endpoint security capabilities, including over 11 innovative engines and a unique Anti-ransomware technology. All of which has been developed to integrate with our broader spectrum of network solutions. It is precisely this tight integration between endpoint and network security that Forrester has stated about Check Point. “Check Point’s focus on integrating the endpoint security capabilities with its network security portfolio
has led to one of the tightest integrations between the two layers in this study, helping customers to enforce a Zero Trust approach on their endpoint devices.”
