Global cybersecurity solutions provider Check Point Software Technologies has announced significant changes to its leadership team. The changes, which bring three female executives into leadership positions, are intended to bolster crucial business areas and continue providing top-class security, Check Point is accelerating its technology and business performance.


Check Point’s Nataly Kremer

The company hired Nataly Kremer as chief product officer and head of research and development. She comes to Check Point after spending 12 years with AT&T. She started out as the director of research technology management. Four years later she was promoted to associate vice president of research and technology. In 2019 she was named vice president of software delivery services at AT&T and general manager of AT&T Israel.

Here’s our list of channel people on the move in February.

At Check Point, Kremer will oversee all product and technology units. She will use her proficiency in delivering network, security and cloud technologies for large enterprises to meet customer needs. She earned a bachelor’s degree in computer sciences and management and a master’s degree in business administration from Tel Aviv University.

Check Point’s Dr. Dorit Dor

Dr. Dorit Dor has been appointed chief technology officer for Check Point. Dor, one of the most senior women in the cybersecurity industry, has been with Check Point as senior product officer for more than 27 years. She has been instrumental in helping the company attain its position as a leading player in the industry.

Dor received her doctorate in computer science from Tel Aviv University. She also served in the Israeli Defense Forces for eight years. Dor sits on the board of the Cyber Threat Alliance and she codes, a community of women in technology created to increase the percentage of female software developers in Israel to 50%.

Check Point also promoted Rupal Hollenbeck to president. A technology leader with more than 28 years of experience, Hollenbeck was previously chief commercial officer. In that role she was integral to creating the strategy and work plans to achieve the company’s goal of accelerated growth. As president she will continue to oversee the company’s go-to-market operations with a focus on delivering the best security experience.
