Check Point Sales Kick Off 2015 - Vienna

Check Point Sales Kick Off - 2015

Red the Puppet Hosted SKO 2015
This year, we had two representatives that went to the Check Point Sales Kick Off 2015 in Vienna, to find out what the Technology Giant has planned for 2015.

Check Point is one of many security network companies that we work with at Claritas – and one of our Partners. Although our solutions are all dedicated to a business’s requirements, we promote the use of Check Point firewalls and blades within many of our security solutions, because they do exactly what they say on the tin – they secure the internet.

So, when we were asked to attend their Sales Kick Off Conference, we jumped at the chance.
Here are our best bits from the conference:

Check Point Capsule:
Mobility and BYOD are necessities in the modern day business, and mobile security is one area that has seen a huge rise in security infringements, with mobile malware infecting over11.6 million devices in 2014... But that is a completely new blog in its own right.
The Check Point Capsule allows users to work remotely and securely from their mobiles. Thus producing:

  • -          An extended corporate security policy to include mobile devices and prevent access to cyber threats
  • -          A secure business environment- Separate business data from personal data and applications on mobile devices
  • -          Secure business documents everywhere users’ go – data encryption on business documents enabling only authorised users to view attachments and emails.

Brilliant we think, especially for the expanding mobile industry, one that in recent years, is new to attacks and more recently has been under scrutiny for data leaks and ‘back doors’ within applications.

Threat Emulation
The threat emulation hardware devices, is something extra special for 2015. It has so far shown 100% effectiveness against Zero Day threats, targeted attacks and undiscovered exploits; and this is from a Meircom report (the industry leader for reviews and certification for networking systems). 

The sales pitch was impressive to say the least, but the technology advancement was even more so. When compared to other leading technology within threat emulation, Check Point exceeded them all, with all unknown threats being identified.

The Awards Ceremony

Okay, so this is not as important in retrospect, but we have to say hats off to Check Point for their awards ceremony in the evening. A brilliant night was had with lots of food and great entertainment. The event as a whole was fantastic, and we definitely learnt a lot about the new technologies due to be launched.
