Check Point Debuts CloudGuard for Saas Application Protection
SAN CARLOS, Calif. -- Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions globally, today announced the general availability of CloudGuard SaaS, an industry-first cloud suite designed to prevent sophisticated security threats that target SaaS applications.
One of the latest additions to Check Point’s CloudGuard portfolio of cloud security products, CloudGuard SaaS protects enterprises that use SaaS applications and cloud-based email (including Office 365, G Suite and OneDrive), and prevents targeted attacks intended to steal sensitive data. Addressing advanced SaaS threats, this cloud service provides 360-degree protection against malware and zero-days, phishing attacks, as well as employee account takeovers. Additionally, it can discover unsanctioned use of SaaS applications and prevent data leakage, while providing instant threat visibility.
“In today’s fifth-generation cyber-attack landscape, it’s crucial to implement technology equipped to take on more threats on business cloud applications,” said Itai Greenberg, VP of Product Management at Check Point Software Technologies. “Businesses generally turn to solutions in the Cloud Access Security Broker domain, which offer visibility and data leakage protection. CloudGuard SaaS, on the other hand, goes beyond CASB capabilities. It’s designed to prevent the most common attacks on SaaS applications, providing peace of mind to enterprises.”
