Check Point Update Services updates the IPS and SmartDefense components of your Check Point products with the latest protections. When a new threat emerges, IPS Services provide information about the threat, the update to protect your system, and instructions on configuring that update for the relevant Check Point products.
You can easily download and configure the latest updates through the Check Point Security Management user interface, protecting your whole system within minutes. These protections defend your system even before vendor-supplied patches become available or are fully installed throughout your network. Often, these broad-based protections are available before the vulnerability has even been discovered or exploited, providing you with pre-emptive protection.
