REDWOOD CITY, Calif. -- Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq:CHKP - News), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today introduced Eventia(TM), a new family of security event management solutions designed to help IT security departments reduce the cost and complexity of security event correlation, management, and reporting. The first product unveiled today in the Eventia product line, Eventia Analyzer(TM), is a comprehensive security event management solution that automatically prioritizes security events for decisive, intelligent action. Eventia Analyzer turns volumes of raw data into actionable information to empower security administrators to make informed decisions on their security deployment.

"The sheer enormity of information collected by security devices makes it extremely difficult for existing security event management solutions to identify meaningful events in a timely fashion, if at all," said Gonen Fink, vice president of solutions and strategy for Check Point Software. "Eventia Analyzer is designed to be easily deployed in hours. The extensive base of built-in knowledge about which security events are important and which can be considered insignificant, greatly increases an enterprises' protection without inundating its security team with lower-priority alerts."

"As a financial institution, our network has to be up-and-running 24x7, so we cannot afford to experience downtime that can result from security breaches," said Eyal Shemesh, CSO of Bank Ha Poalim. "Based on our evaluation, we think that Check Point's Eventia Analyzer will provide us with IT security efficiency. We expect to easily collect and analyze security data so that we will be able to identify the highest risk threats and respond to security incidents in real-time. By providing automated event correlation as well as making the process of analyzing security events so simple, Eventia Analyzer might ease the administrative workload of our IT team so they can focus on high priority IT projects."
