Recent findings by ThoughtLab revealed that the pandemic brought cybersecurity to a critical inflection point. According to their 2022 study, Cybersecurity Solutions for a Riskier World, the number of material breaches respondents suffered rose 20.5% from 2020 to 2021.
The study also noted that security executives expect an increase in attacks from social engineering and ransomware, anticipating that strikes will “target weak spots primarily caused by software misconfigurations (49%), human error (40%), poor maintenance (40%) and unknown assets (30%).”
Cyberthreats are growing more sophisticated by the day as the threatscape evolves. It’s critical that businesses stay alert, implementing proactive security measures to protect their company and workforce. Helpful steps include:
Forming a comprehensive security architecture can be a daunting task, with disconnected solutions leaving critical gaps in your protection. Check Point security, available from Insight, provides a simpler solution.
Unified Security Management (USM) refers to software that provides multiple security functions. For instance, Check Point’s Infinity Vision delivers all the security capabilities of the Check Point Infinity Structure from a single pane of glass.
From just one platform you can secure and manage your entire IT infrastructure — including networks, cloud, the Internet of Things (IoT), endpoints and mobile. How does this help you defend against rising cyberattacks? It creates one point of visibility and control for all security needs.
Infinity Vision provides:
You’ll secure your entire organization with a single security management platform.
Share policies across solutions and achieve total visibility with unified logs.
Point and click to secure assets, respond to threats and scale services.
Check Point offers a multi-level security architecture for end-to-end protection.
The security pillars that make up this architecture include:
Each offering protects a critical area of your overall security and helps defend against cyberattacks. For example, Check Point Quantum Network Security provides ultra-scalable protection against Gen V cyberattacks on your network, cloud, data center, IoT and remote users.
Recently, Check Point research teams encountered an upsurge in Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks. Quantum gateways offer capabilities that can mitigate the impact of DDoS attacks — including prevention signatures, operating system and gateway configuration settings, management automated responses and commands for dynamically blocking attack sources.
Check Point Harmony is another facet of the Infinity architecture that’s critical for modern work.
The Harmony solution unifies six cloud-based security products to keep your remote workforce protected:
This helps your data remain secure, no matter where your teammates connect from.
Check Point’s Infinity architecture helps secure your IT environment from end to end, helping prevent even the most sophisticated cyberattacks. When paired with Insight’s deep expertise, you’ll achieve comprehensive security that can stand up to an evolving threatscape.
When it comes to implementing your security solutions, Insight experts will guide you each step of the way — leading to:
It’s time to simplify your security. Start building your multilayered security architecture, and enjoy the benefits of Check Point’s unified security management.
