As networking architectures have evolved in complexity, so too have the threats to corporate security. The days of a simple firewall serving to protect the network seem to be in the past.
That’s why Check Point, itself a pioneer in the firewall market, has developed a network defense technology it calls 3D Security.
The new approach, included in a new firmware update, monitors for threats on an array of attack planes and networking layers.
Check Point is also making a concerted effort to align security with the interests and structure of a business’s organization.
“It first starts with the fact the policy should be presented in understandable business terms and not just technology terms,” said Check Point Vice President Oded Gonda. “So rather than talk about policies in terms of IP addresses and ports, it’s about what type of people and groups, are allowed or not allowed to access data or applications.”
