CHECK POINT CPX 360 — Check Point Software Technologies kicked off this week’s CPX 360 2023 by unveiling its new Quantum SD-WAN and Extended Cyber Attack Prevention Platform for network, email and endpoints.
Instead of taking place in one location, CPX 360 is happening simultaneously in several cities and virtually.
Geoff Waters is Check Point’s president of Americas sales. The company is in the process of recruiting a global channel chief following Frank Rauch’s departure.
Check Point’s Geoff Waters
“CPX 360 is all around leveling-up and it’s around customer-first, it’s around customer engagement, understanding what their priorities are, and then putting that in our portfolio and driving better security results for our customers,” Waters said. “So it really starts with our customers, leveling up … to our customers. The second thing is around our partners. There’s a big concept around ensuring that you start a sales cycle with a partner and you’re going to end a sales cycle with a partner. So making sure that we have a one-team concept across our salespeople as well as our partners.”
Quantum SD-WAN protects branch offices with next-generation threat prevention and optimized connectivity. It combines security with optimized network and internet connectivity as part of a complete security and internet access solution managed from the Check Point Infinity cloud platform.
Check Point Horizon Extended Detection and Response/Extended Prevention and Response (XDR/XPR) detects and stops known and zero-day threats across email, cloud, networks and endpoints.
Also during CPX 360, Check Point is releasing its 2023 security report. The report shows an increase in cyberattacks and the rise of “disruption and destruction” malware. Overall, global cyberattacks increased by 38% in 2022 compared to 2021, with an average of 1,168 weekly attacks per organization. This was driven in part by smaller, more agile hackers and ransomware groups. They’re exploiting the legitimate collaboration tools that have become commonplace in the hybrid workplace.
