Check Point Software Technologies
If you have the Check Point environment and want to utilize the Checkpoint environment, you should use the [Check Point] ThreatCloud. Without [Check Point] ThreatCloud, there’s no way to stop the 0days or APTs. However, [Check Point] ThreatCloud relies on the Checkpoint infrastructure to be used and integrated. If you have other firewall and/or endpoint vendors, [Check Point] ThreatCloud is not the best service to be used. Checkpoint also offers 24x7 threat cloud-managed security services to [...] organizations. Threat cloud-managed security services leverage the threat cloud decreasing the detection time and false-positive rates via increasing protection rates.

  • Catch rates are very high compared to other vendors
  • One missing thing is the detection for localized URLs and IPs
  • Purchasing within the 3-year perspective is cheap compared to other solutions; ROI is generally six months
  • [Check Point] ThreatCloud eliminates the need [for] other additional services that may need to be deployed like dedicated IPS, Dedicated Sandbox, DNS solution, etc.
