As the pandemic continues to cause uncertainty for many businesses, the adoption of a hybrid work model persists, remaining commonplace for many businesses regardless of size.
It is paramount for businesses to ensure that no matter where employees are located, they are safe and secure from cyber-attacks. Small and midsized businesses (SMBs) are challenged to operate safely with physical and virtual boundaries created by work-from-home business practices, as well as, in-office operations. SMBs also struggle with the expertise, manpower, and IT budget needed to address security threats successfully. It is an absolute must for SMBs to have guaranteed protection from every threat so that time and resources aren’t wasted worrying about emerging threats like malware, phishing, ransomware, and more.
Check Point Software has designed a unique, comprehensive security solution suite specifically built for SMBs. The suite removes unnecessary obstacles associated with trying to make the right security decision. The SMB Security Suite delivers effective security in a series of simple and affordable security solutions that protect SMBs employees, networks, and data from cyber-attacks. Check Point Software has received various awards for the solutions that are included in the SMB Security Suite, including the 2021 CRN Tech Innovators Award for Check Point Quantum Spark, as well as being named a ‘Major Player’ in both the 2021 IDC MarketScape Report for Enterprises & the 2021 IDC MarketScape report for SMBs.
