Check Point has introduced its next-generation security management platform, Check Point R80, to address the complexity of securing today’s enterprises. The new platform gives IT leaders the ability to consolidate all aspects of their security environment into one single place, enabling for new levels of automation for time-consuming security tasks.

“As a leader in the semiconductor business, with a worldwide network of design centers, security is absolutely critical to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of our business transactions,” said Sanjay Bhandari, senior security engineer, Marvell. “With Check Point solutions, and in particular the R80 management platform, we will be able to manage security more efficiently from a single console. Having multiple administrators work on the policy at the same time is a boon for us as our team is distributed across multiple locations worldwide.”

Business is increasingly challenged to stay ahead of new threats that are continually evolving. The new R80 management platform addresses this need, providing a unified security approach for enterprises to consolidate all aspects of their security, so they can deploy strong protection efficiently across their organizations. This is accomplished in three key ways:

• The introduction of ‘one console, one policy.’ The new R80 platform ensures consistently strong protections across the entire infrastructure with a single console to manage the perimeter, data center branch and cloud deployments. This means streamlining and gaining greater visibility into policy administration, even allowing multiple administrators the ability to work on the same policy without conflict.

• Better aligning security with business processes and network architectures. The technology in R80 helps security teams keep pace with changing policy by segmenting into manageable sections, aligning security to IT processes, and helping empower security self-service for business owners and freeing key security personnel for strategic security tasks.

• Integration of threat management for a single view into risk across a network. In R80, security teams have full visibility into security status and can react faster to prevent the next attack. Monitoring, logging, reporting and event correlation are all captured into the same, visual, customizable dashboard. This not only enables an easy one-to-two clicks to drill down and quickly troubleshoot an event; it allows teams to create custom-tailored reports for everyone from key business executives to technology partners.

The new R80 security management platform will be available later this March.
