Check Point Infinity
Check Point Software Technologies in April brought together its technology for network security appliances, security management, mobile, cloud and threat prevention onto a single platform. The Tel Aviv, Israel-based company's new approach is designed to prepare partners and customers for the future of cybersecurity, including more sophisticated attacks, mobile threats, and making sure security protections are extended to the cloud, CEO Gil Shwed said in April. Disparate security offerings are costlier and not as effective for preventing security threats as a unified platform, according to Shwed. Infinity has a single security platform for the sharing of resources and threat intelligence, a pre-emptive threat prevention focus, and a consolidated system that provides a single pane of glass for management, policy and threat visibility.
