Identity attacks pie chart

It is clear that username and passwords no longer prove the identity of a user. Access control to your valuable assets must be strengthened. Check Point Identity Awareness ensures access to your data is granted only to authorized users, and only after their identities have been strictly authenticated; using Single Sign-On, Multi-Factor Authentication, Context-aware policies and anomaly detection.

Easily add user, user group and machine identity intelligence to your security defenses. Identity Awareness monitors traffic while giving you insight into user and computer identities. This lets you enforce access and audit data based on identity.

Integrated Ecosystem

Identity Awareness maps users and computer identities, allowing for access to be granted or denied based on identity. The Check Point Identity Collector agent installed on a Windows host acquires identities from sources including Microsoft Active Directory Domain Controllers and Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE).
