Global cybersecurity solutions provider, Check Point Software Technologies, has announced the general availability of CloudGuard SaaS – a cloud suite designed to prevent sophisticated security threats that target SaaS applications.
One of the latest additions to Check Point’s CloudGuard portfolio of cloud security products, CloudGuard SaaS protects enterprises that use SaaS applications and cloud-based email (including Office 365, GSuite and OneDrive), and prevents targeted attacks intended to steal sensitive data.
Addressing advanced SaaS threats, this cloud service would provide 360-degree protection against malware and zero-days, phishing attacks, as well as employee account takeovers. Additionally, it can discover unsanctioned use of SaaS applications and prevent data leakage, while providing instant threat visibility.
“In today’s fifth-generation cyber-attack landscape, it’s crucial to implement technology equipped to take on more threats on business cloud applications,” said Itai Greenberg, VP of Product Management at Check Point Software Technologies. “Businesses generally turn to solutions in the Cloud Access Security Broker domain, which offer visibility and data leakage protection. CloudGuard SaaS, on the other hand, goes beyond CASB capabilities. It’s designed to prevent the most common attacks on SaaS applications, providing peace of mind to enterprises.”
Check Point offers a multilevel security architecture with their new Gen V advanced threat prevention that would protect all networks, cloud and mobile operations of a business against all known attacks combined with a “comprehensive and intuitive” single point of control management system. Check Point protects over 100,000 organizations of all sizes.
“Businesses today face potential cyberattacks occurring from multiple vectors, including SaaS-based applications,” said Jon Oltsik, senior principal analyst at the analyst firm ESG. “Products like Check Point CloudGuard SaaS can help enterprises looking to protect themselves from attacks of different levels – from phishing to zero-day compromises.”
