Fri, 12th Jan 2024

Frost & Sullivan, a globally recognised business consulting firm, has made known its acknowledgment of Check Point Software Technologies Ltd, a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions, as a Leader and Innovator in Cloud Security. This recognition throws light on Check Point's longstanding commitment, spanning over three decades, to provide secure internet access to various organisations. The recent accolades from Frost Radar in the areas of Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms and Cloud Workload Protection Platforms pay tribute to the company's effort to devise prevention-first security solutions for cloud atmospheres.

Itai Greenberg, Chief Strategy Officer at Check Point, passionately expressed the fruit of the company's commitment to a preventative strategy. He said, "Our steadfast commitment to adopting a prevention-first strategy for our customers has played a pivotal role in our achievements across Check Point's cloud platform. We are proud to be recognised as a leader and innovator in the cloud security industry by Frost & Sullivan." He went further to express the company's confidence and optimism in their Comprehensive CNAPP capabilities ensuring they continue to offer top-tier security solutions even within an unpredictable threat landscape.

The Cloud-Native Application Protection Platforms radar report by Frost & Sullivan in 2023 acknowledges Check Point's innovative contribution in the Cloud Native Application Protection Platform (CNAPP) space. Labeled as one of the few vendors providing an all-encompassing CNAPP platform incorporating all critical capabilities across cloud application lifecycle, Check Point's CloudGuard CNAPP provides an automated security platform designed to protect customer's data, cloud assets, applications, networks, and workloads.

Frost & Sullivan also recognise the significance of Cloud Workload Protection platforms (CWPP) as the core of cloud-native security. Noting the company's robust innovation within the field of CWPP and cloud security, the firm acknowledged Check Point's CloudGuard for providing extensive security for cloud assets, networks, applications, and workloads traversing various public and private cloud settings.

Regarding Check Point's persistent strides in innovation, Frost & Sullivan draw attention to the latest introductions of Amazon Macie and Microsoft Purview Integrations, two potent security capabilities designed to afford greater control and security in cloud environments. These capabilities which include Data Security Posture Management (DSPM) and Effective Risk Management, according to Anh Tien Vu, analyst at Frost & Sullivan, "showcase the company's strong innovation capabilities and commitment to cloud-native security."

Data Security and Privacy Management (DSPM) function to shield sensitive data, flagging workloads containing sensitive data, assessing their security posture, and adjusting cloud environment risks accordingly to aid the primary focus on top-tier matters. Effective Risk Management, on the other hand, helps prioritise risks and gives actionable remediation guidance based on comprehensive computation of workload posture, network exposure, identity permissions, attack path analysis, and the application's business value, thereby helping to drastically reduce the attack surface.
