Check Point Software Technologies Recognized as a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Unified Threat Management

September 27, 2018

SAN CARLOS, Calif., Sept. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the leading provider of cybersecurity solutions globally, today announces it was named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Unified Threat Management. Gartner defines United Threat Management as “a multifunction network security product used by small or midsize businesses (SMBs). Typically, midsize businesses have 100 to 1,000 employees. UTM vendors continually add new functions on the UTM platforms, and therefore they encompass the feature set of many other network security solutions, including, but not limited to:

-- Enterprise firewall -- Intrusion prevention systems (IPSs) -- Remote access -- Routing and WAN connectivity -- Secure web gateway -- Secure email gateway

Therefore, this market focuses on the UTM products used by midsize businesses. Midsize organizations frequently manage the technology with in-house IT staff, or use a managed security service provider (MSSP) to handle the operational maintenance of the appliance, manage the configuration or handle the security monitoring.”

“We believe being named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for United Threat Management is a reflection on Check Point’s commitment to our partners and customers in providing top-tier cyber security solutions, along with an exceptional customer experience to support it,” said Peter Alexander, Chief Marketing Officer at Check Point. “We are grateful to our customers and the feedback they provided on Gartner Peer Insights, and we will remain committed to innovating while executing our product roadmap, and meeting the needs of our customers.”

Due to the rise in advanced threats targeting the UTM market, the demand for premium security offerings to include advanced threat prevention and enterprise-level security features has grown. These businesses need top-notch security designed for their smaller environment regardless if the network is on premise or in the cloud. Check Point Infinity Architecture is a comprehensive suite of solutions that deliver the most innovative and effective security across all network segmentations, keeping customers protected against large-scale, fifth-generation cyber threats.
