Check Point stops cyber criminals in their tracksSeptember 2 - 2pm
Check Point Software Technologies has announced the availability of Check Point R77, the latest release for its award-winning Software Blade Architecture.
R77 offers over 50 product enhancements, including a new ThreatCloud Emulation Service, Check Point HyperSpect performance enhancing technology and Check Point Compliance Software Blade.

Today’s cyber criminals work at a dizzying pace, developing stealthy new attacks and carefully targeting their victims with customized malware.
Researchers estimate that an average of 70,000 to 100,000 new malware samples are created and distributed every day.
The sheer volume of malware demonstrates the ever-increasing barrage of advanced and previously undiscovered attacks that organisations face.
At the same time, the business-critical requirements for network performance continue to grow at an exponential pace.
This environment requires a combination of threat prevention capabilities, lightning-fast security infrastructure, and automated regulatory compliance capabilities.
Check Point R77 brings together preventative security capabilities, compliance monitoring and real-life performance boosts to existing gateways.
“Our customers need to stay one step ahead of the bad guys to protect their networks, and R77 provides the best platform and security protections to help them to do that,” says Dorit Dor, vice president of products, Check Point Software Technologies.
“With optimised performance, cloud-based threat emulation and automated compliance monitoring, our software blade architecture is designed from the ground up to be the most comprehensive multi-layered security solution available today.”
The R77 Release is a free upgrade for existing customers, while the ThreatCloud Emulation Service is based on a global organisational quota, which begins at a monthly list price of US$500 for up to 10,000 files inspected per month.
R77 and ThreatCloud Emulation Service will be available by September 2 from worldwide partners.
