Check Point Software Technologies Ltd, a global provider of cybersecurity solutions, has extended the capabilities of its Quantum Hybrid Data Centre Security solution to deliver the most advanced protection for complex hybrid data centres with automated operations and an ultra-scalable platform.

According to Check Point, the new Check Point R81.10 software, Check Point Quantum Maestro 175 and Check Point Quantum Smart-1 Security Management appliances, enable businesses to have greater flexibility to securely move workloads between the data centre and cloud on demand.

The cybersecurity vendor said enterprises can now enable applications and workloads to be delivered at the Edge with better response times at lower costs.

“Security threats have become more frequent and sophisticated, so automated threat prevention and security policy orchestration will be key to keeping up with the expanding threat landscape,” said Itai Greenberg, VP, Product Management, Check Point Software Technologies. “Check Point’s Hybrid Data Centre Security Solution increases enterprises performance and scalability without complexity. The Quantum family of products protects organisations’ data centres from sophisticated attacks by isolating threats with zero trust micro segmentation, providing fully automated operations with dynamic and unified policy management, and by enabling remote users to securely connect to the cloud.”

“With the emergence of distributed SaaS applications and the need to better support remote workers, the modern data centre is rapidly evolving to a hybrid architecture, with both on-premises and cloud operations,” said Frank Dickson, Vice President of Security and Trust, IDC. “Check Point is enabling global enterprises to secure their hybrid data centres, extending hyperscale security, and simplifying management and operational efficiency on premise and in the cloud.”

Check Point’s complete Hybrid Data Centre Security portfolio delivers:

  • Highest level of threat prevention for the data centre: Check Point R81.10 software provides enterprises with the most advanced protection to block attacks including over 60 Artificial Intelligence (AI)and Machine Learning threat prevention engines designed for any network. All gateways are updated automatically for complete protection against zero-day threats
  • Advance performance in daily operations: Check Point R81.10 brings major improvements in security operation efficiency providing enterprises the quickest route to deploying Check Point’s unified security management across their entire network fabric from their web browser, with no deployment time needed, and no need for on-going maintenance or manual updates
  • Automated and scalable data centre operations: Check Point Maestro orchestration enables expansion from a single Quantum gateway orchestration to the capacity and performance of 52 gateways in minutes, giving companies elastic flexibility while enabling high levels of threat prevention throughput
  • Scalable Security Management and Compliance: Check Point’s four new Quantum Smart-1 Security Management appliances allow security administrators to scale managed gateways on demand making it possible to double capacity in just five minutes

“The Quantum Cybersecurity platform is intuitive and user-friendly,” said Kyle Pomering, Network Engineer, CoxHealth. “If I miss something, it tells me. I can deploy a policy in seconds instead of minutes. And I have peace of mind knowing that a policy change won’t create a connectivity loss or delay.”

The modern data centre and network requires the flexibility of a hybrid cloud security architecture that uses automation and AI to scale threat prevention performance on demand on premise and in the cloud, with a simplified and unified management system.
