Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), a leading provider of cyber security solutions globally, today announced that GigaOm has named Check Point Software an industry leader in its 2022 GigaOm Radar Report for Cloud Security Posture Management. The leadership position was earned due to Check Point CloudGuard’s compliance framework monitoring and powerful automation features in the cloud security space.
The GigaOm Radar report analyzes key criteria in CSPM solutions based on eight vendor’s products’ technical capabilities and feature sets. The Radar chart characterizes each vendor on two axes—balancing Maturity versus Innovation, and Feature Play versus Platform Play—while providing an arrow that projects each solution’s evolution over the coming 12 to 18 months. Check Point is distinguished as an established security vendor that has created cloud security solutions for the modern security landscape and demonstrates deep capabilities across several important areas in the cloud.
“Check Point CloudGuard has wide-ranging features that leverage highly capable compliance frameworks and use automation, contextualized risk detection and remediation to provide security from code to cloud when compared to other solutions” said Chris Ray, Security & Risk analyst at GigaOm. “The enhanced context improves cloud security and improves operational efficiency, which is crucial for security staff to easily mitigate risks in the cloud.”
A key CloudGuard feature set highlighted in the report is the remediation capability, which quickly discovers and fixes vulnerabilities before attackers can exploit them. CloudGuard leverages machine learning and other AI technologies to create a context-aware engine that prioritizes risks and threats to generate actionable remediation insights and directs security teams to focus on the most important tasks. This contextualized risk experience empowers enterprises to go beyond monitoring and intrusion detection to fully operate safely in the cloud.
“With the increase in cloud adoption, one of the biggest concerns are vulnerabilities within cloud deployments which are not properly identified or remediated,” describes TJ Gonen, VP Cloud Security at Check Point Software. “At Check Point we build prevention focused solutions that provide deep visibility across the entire cloud environment and throughout the software development lifecycle, and we are honored to be regarded as a Leader in GigaOm’s CSPM radar report.”
