Check Point Software Technologies partners, customers and others this week headed to the Big Easy for the company’s CPX 360 2020 conference.
The theme of the conference was “Secure Your Everything.” And to emphasize the widespread threat of cybersecurity, Gil Shwed, Check Point’s CEO and founder, said the venue where the conference took place was hit by a cyberattack last week following an attack on the entire city.
Check Point assisted in mitigating the convention center attack, but there still were lingering threats during the conference, he said.
Five cybersecurity phenomenons that have taken place include: Cybercrime has become organized, cloud security risks are evolving, ransomware is on the rise, mobile malware is increasing, and new attack vectors include 5G and IoT, Shwed said.
Shwed stressed the importance of focusing on threat prevention rather than detection, saying “prevention protects your assets, detection produces alerts.”
“We are building the future of cybersecurity: one system to support all technologies … [that’s] easy to deploy and use, and really secures everything,” he said. “Our partners are especially important as we go to more places in the world.”
