Check Point Software Technologies Ltd, the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today introduced Software-defined Protection (SDP), a revolutionary security architecture that can protect organizations in today’s fast-evolving IT and threat landscape. Software-defined Protection offers modern security today that can effectively protect against tomorrow’s threats, through a design that is modular, agile and most importantly, secure.
SDP is a three-layer security architecture comprised of enforcement, control and management layers. This framework decouples the control layer from the enforcement layer, enabling robust and highly-reliable enforcement points that obtain real-time protection updates from a 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 Software Technologies.
“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. “Security attacks have changed radically over the years, and SDP represents a very smart shift forward in protecting organizations of all sizes in a pragmatic, modular and secure approach.”
