Check Point has today introduced Software-defined Protection (SDP), a revolutionary security architecture that can protect organisations in today’s fast-evolving IT and threat landscape. Software-defined Protection effectively protects against new and emerging threats, through a design that is modular, agile and secure.
SDP is a three-layer security architecture with enforcement, control and management layers. This decouples the control layer from the enforcement layer, enabling robust and highly-reliable enforcement points that obtain real-time protection updates from the software-based control layer. SDP converts threat intelligence into immediate protections and is managed by a modular and open management structure.
“The threat landscape has become far more sophisticated while at the same time, enterprise IT environments have grown in complexity. Enterprises are looking for advice on how they can become more secure, but in a way that is manageable and simple to use. SDP is today’s security architecture for tomorrow’s threats; it is simple, flexible and can robustly convert threat intelligence into real-time protections,” said Amnon Bar-Lev, president at Check Point. “There are a multitude of point security products that are reactive and tactical in nature rather than architecturally oriented. We developed SDP in response to this gap, and to give organisations an agile and secure security infrastructure.”
“By offering a security architecture driven by function, threat and need, Check Point’s Software-defined Protection architectural blueprint can help IT better redesign their enterprise security network to accommodate both today’s IT borderless environment, and the dynamic threat landscape,” said Charles Kolodgy, research vice president with IDC Security Products team.
“Check Point’s new Software-defined Protection is a sound blueprint to architecting security that just makes a lot of practical sense,” said Dan Meyer, vice president of technology at Carmel Partners, a real estate investment company. “Security attacks have changed radically over the years, and SDP represents a very smart shift forward in protecting organisations of all sizes in a pragmatic, modular and secure approach.”
