Check Point unveils ThreatCloud Security Services
Posted on 15 November 2012.
Check Point has announced ThreatCloud Security Services, a set of new security service offerings to assist customers in protecting their organisation's networks from threats.

These new services monitor events directly on customer security gateways, and are powered by Check Point’s ThreatCloud security intelligence infrastructure, the industry’s largest collaborative network for fighting cybercrime, delivering real-time threat data from a worldwide network of sensors. ThreatCloud Security Services integrate this global collaborative intelligence into two new services:
  • ThreatCloud Managed Security Service continuously monitors customer networks and gateways for security events, and provides easy to understand, actionable alerts based this specific data. The managed security service also optimises security by recommending and fine tuning the organisation’s Threat Prevention policies.
  • ThreatCloud Incident Response gives customers expert assistance in real-time during critical security incidents, to help them respond and recover quickly.
“With the increasing level of threat sophistication and greater frequency, it can be challenging for even the best-equipped security teams to stay ahead of the curve. These new service offerings provide customers with critical security resources,” said Dorit Dor, vice president of products at Check Point Software Technologies.

“Having a security service that can analyse security events, provide live alerts and offer immediate mitigation gives us peace of mind. Best of all, going with Check Point ThreatCloud Managed Services saved us a whopping 75% in annual cost versus other service providers we’ve used,” Luis Rivas, network security analyst at Banesco, the US-based bank. “We feel much more comfortable having Check Point monitor our IPS rather than a third-party – since the product and service are both directly from a trusted leader in security.”

Check Point ThreatCloud Security Services identify the most important threats and advise organisations so they can effectively prevent serious damage to their network.

Check Point ThreatCloud Managed Security Service stops attacks with award-winning technology and expert analysis. This security service provides our customers’ with security monitoring, visibility and compliance support. It monitors logs from their network and gateways to turn the overwhelming flood of security events into manageable, actionable alerts. Check Point experts monitor and uncover stealthy attacks before they are able to do serious damage. It also fine tunes policies for Check Point’s Threat Prevention Software Blades: IPS, Anti-Bot and Antivirus.

Check Point ThreatCloud Incident Response provides customers with expert assistance during critical security incidents. Check Point certified security professionals are readily available to recommend controls, practical remediation and implement security best practices.

The service helps speed recovery times after an event, to quickly get businesses back up and running. It also provides on-call experts to keep the network protected when an attack may be in the works or has been successfully executed and discovered. The service mitigates future security events with post-incident advisement.
