Check Point launches CloudGuard

New cloud security product family prevents account hijacking and Gen V cyber-attacks on SaaS applications and cloud workloads.

Check Point has introduced the CloudGuard product family to protect enterprises from Gen V cyber-attacks on cloud applications and infrastructure. Check Point is also introducing CloudGuard SaaS protecting enterprises against cyber-attacks on SaaS applications. CloudGuard is a part of the Check Point Infinity architecture, built on industry proven and award winning technologies to provide comprehensive cyber protection for the cloud.
“Security is continually cited as a key barrier to wide-spread enterprise cloud adoption,” said Gil Shwed, CEO at Check Point. “Our new CloudGuard product family provides consistent and comprehensive threat prevention for cloud based SaaS applications and infrastructure workloads.”
CloudGuard SaaS is an industry-first set of technologies designed to provide advanced security and threat prevention for software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications. CloudGuard SaaS also prevents account hijacking, using patent-pending ID-Guard technology. Key security features include:
·Zero-day Threat Protection: Prevents APTs and unknown zero-day malware from infecting content in SaaS applications using real-time sandboxing, ransomware protection, anti-bot technologies and real-time cloud-based threat intelligence.
·Identity Protection with ID-Guard (patent-pending) technology: identifies and blocks threat actors or impostors to access SaaS accounts, and blocks unauthorized users and compromised devices.
·Data Protection: automatically forces encryption of sensitive data, and blocks and quarantines unauthorized sharing of sensitive files.
“After migrating our organization to Office365 and OneDrive, we searched for a comprehensive cybersecurity solution to protect them and decided on Check Point CloudGuard,” said Amir Shay, Security Officer, Neopharm Group. “Since adopting CloudGuard SaaS, it has blocked numerous attacks on our applications, including account takeover, phishing and ransomware attacks.”
CloudGuard IaaS - formerly vSEC and now a member of the CloudGuard family, CloudGuard IaaS provides advanced Gen V security/threat prevention of attacks on infrastructure and workloads for all leading public and private cloud platforms including: Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure, Cisco ACI, OpenStack, VMware NSX, VMware Cloud on AWS, VMware ESX, Alibaba Cloud, KVM, Hyper-V and more.
“With cloud adoption at an all-time high, cloud security is clearly a major concern for most enterprises,” said Doug Cahill, group director and senior cybersecurity analyst at market research firm, Enterprise Strategy Group. “As enterprises evaluate cloud security solutions, they must look to offerings like Check Point’s CloudGuard family of security solutions that not only provide advanced threat protection but also keep applications, infrastructure and data in the cloud safe.”
