5 Boldest Statements From Check Point CEO Gil Shwed At CPX 360

Check Point CEO Gil Shwed took center stage at CPX 360 to discuss how the company plans to separate security delivery and security services, why detection should never be prioritized over prevention, and which area of cybersecurity is most often overlooked.

In the coming years, Shwed said security delivery will be a very simple, straightforward, and lightweight process flexible enough to accommodate everything from conventional networks and endpoints to virtual servers, computer-less functions, web apps, and custom apps.

Security services, meanwhile, will be consolidated into a very sophisticated cloud, Shwed said, with Check Point deploying new technologies that can be architected centrally to support these complex environments. AI and real-time communication will make it easier for Check Point to bring security to entities both large and small in the enterprise, according to Shwed.

Up until the present, Shwed said every group in the enterprise took care of securing their own devices and writing the security for their applications. But now, Shwed said control is being returned to the CISO to define the correct way to enforce security across the entire enterprise and decouple it from application logic.

"It reduces the complexity greatly," Shwed said.
