Check Point forms seven-strong alliance to fight cybercrime

Security firm Check Point has announced a “ground breaking collaboration” with seven industry partners to help businesses prevent cyber attacks.

Opening the Check Point Experience event in Barcelona, CEO and founder Gil Shwed told 1,500 delegates that the immediate launch of ThreatCloud IntelliStore offered customers “a level of intelligence never seen before”.

The marketplace sees Check Point work with several industry-leading partners – iSIGHT, CrowdStrike, IID, NetClean, PhishLabs, SenseCy, and ThreatGRID – to offer threat intelligence on issues from malware to child pornography.

TheatCloud IntelliStore enables businesses to select intelligence feeds that will automatically prevent attacks. Customers can select and customise intelligence feeds from a variety of sources according to their organisation’s needs in specific geographies, vertical industries, and protection types.

The new offering builds on Check Point’s core security intelligence infrastructure, ThreatCloud – “the industry’s largest real-time big data security infrastructure” – which delivers threat data from a worldwide network of threat sensors.

“Real prevention is intelligence, and a strategic approach with data updated one or twice a day is not enough,” said Shwed. “ThreatCloud IntelliStore offers a level of intelligence never seen before in the industry.”

John P. Watters, CEO of iSIGHT added: “This endeavour will provide organisations with the tools they need to build next generation intelligence-led security programs and it will shape the cyber security market as a whole.”
