Technology distributor, Westcon Comstor, recently highlighted the comprehensive Zero Trust capabilities of Check Point.
In Today’s evolving threat landscape the Zero Trust model has emerged as a benchmark in security, emphasising that no entity, inside or outside the network, should be implicitly trusted.
“The ability of Check Point to help companies tackle security with a Zero Trust approach is highlighted by its recent recognition as a leader in the Forrester Wave™ for Zero Trust Platform Providers, Q3 2023 report. The company’s leadership in Zero Trust is a testament to its forward-thinking approach and commitment to creating a safer digital world. We are immensely proud to partner with a trailblazer that consistently raises the bar in cybersecurity,” says Aveshan Aiyer, Channel Manager for Check Point at Westcon-Comstor.
In the realm of Zero Trust security, Check Point champions the “Divide and Rule” principle to curtail risks of network breaches. Its innovative offerings include the rapid-deployment Harmony Connect Remote Access, a ZTNA-as-a-service solution, ensuring secure and intuitive access across diverse enterprise networks and platforms. Complementing this is its Security Gateways, which provide meticulous network segmentation and visibility, ensuring a stringent “Least Privileged” access policy where only authorised entities gain access to critical assets.
Check Point exemplifies the Zero Trust model with its dual strategy for network security. Its Harmony Connect Remote Access ensures swift deployment and intuitive access across various infrastructures, while Security Gateways enhance segmentation, offering a detailed overview to ensure only authorised access.
Amidst rising data breaches from stolen credentials, Check Point’s Identity Awareness and Harmony Connect fortify access controls with features like Multi-Factor Authentication. The company prioritises device security, with solutions to block compromised access and shield employee devices. Its Infinity platform offers robust security for cloud workloads and comprehensive data protection strategies, including encryption, loss prevention, and advanced data management.
This all-encompassing protection is further augmented by superior visibility and analytics through R80 Centralised Security Management. Check Point Infinity’s vast API capabilities complement this, championing seamless IT integrations to bolster Zero Trust frameworks.
“In the Forrester report, Check Point “sets the bar for centralised management and usability,” receiving the highest accolades in vital categories such as data security, device security, and visibility. As the Zero Trust model becomes an industry benchmark, Check Point’s Infinity platform is the cornerstone of this paradigm shift.
“Zero Trust is more than a buzzword; it’s a necessity. And having industry leaders like Check Point pioneering solutions in this domain makes the digital landscape more secure for all,” added Aiyer.
