Check Point Unveils New Managed Security Services

Digital cybersecurity and network protection

Check Point Software Technologies has added managed security services for network, cloud and security operations to its Infinity Global Services suite, according to the company.

The new services help organizations address "complex challenges of designing and implementing a cyber-resiliency strategy and the nuances of cloud migrations," Check Point vice president of Infinity Global Services Eitan Lugassi-Gilad said.

A Closer Look at the New Infinity Global Services

Check Point's managed network security service provides organizations with network operations center-as-a-service (NOCaaS) and security operations center-as-a-service (SOCaaS) capabilities, the company stated. It allows organizations to use various tools and processes to optimize their networking security and infrastructure.

Meanwhile, Check Point's cloud security service gives organizations access to cloud security experts who can facilitate secure cloud migrations and enhance their cloud security posture, the business noted. It also enables organizations to leverage managed cloud security posture management (CSPM) and cloud-native application protection platform (CNAPP) capabilities.

Along with these, Check Point is offering an eXtended managed detection and response (XMDR) service that combines its Horizon MDR and managed prevention and response (MPR) solution with the Microsoft Sentinel security information and event management (SIEM) platform, the company noted. This service provides organizations with security analytics and incident detection and response capabilities.

Check Point Launches Security Automation Platform

The release of three new Infinity Global Services comes after Check Point in October 2023 announced its Horizon Playblocks security automation and collaboration platform.

Playbooks provides organizations with predefined prevention playbooks that they can use to detect and address cyberattacks, Check Point stated. By doing so, Playbooks helps organizations quickly contain threats and prevent future attacks.

Check Point Continues to Add to Its Security Portfolio

To date, Check Point has made several cybersecurity acquisitions in 2023, including:

  • Perimeter 81, a company that offers secure access service edge (SASE), zero trust network access (ZTNA) and firewall-as-a-service (FWaaS) solutions
  • Atmosec, a SaaS security specialist
  • rmsource, a Microsoft cloud solution provider

Check Point offers security products and solutions to more than 100,000 organizations globally. It also provides an MSSP partner program.
