Check Point and FireEye Announce New Partnership to Share Threat Intelligence
Partnership will provide joint customers with largest set of actionable threat intelligence in the industry
RSA Conference, San Francisco, CA – April 20, 2015 - Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), the largest pure-play security vendor globally, and FireEye (Nasdaq: FEYE), the leader at stopping today's advanced cyber attacks, today announced a partnership to share threat intelligence to protect customers from modern advanced attacks. As part of this cooperation, Check Point’s ThreatCloud and Next Generation Threat Prevention solutions and the FireEye NX platform will share the latest threat intelligence in real-time, allowing customers to update firewall security policies dynamically based on the intelligence from both platforms.
Organizations of all sizes are targeted every day by hackers, with
various methods and intentions. Whether or not the attacks are
successful depends on each organization’s security implementations and
the threat intelligence data that supports them. The partnership
between Check Point and FireEye will allow the market leaders in
zero-day protection to bring a deeper level of understanding around
the threat landscape to customers. With this partnership, customers
- Actionable, automated threat intelligence: The companies will mutually share anonymized threat intelligence which includes IP addresses, domain names and file hashes that will be automatically integrated into their respective products and networks, to bolster security across their deployed footprints in a customer’s network.
- Access to the largest repository of threat intelligence: The partnership combines intelligence from Check Point’s Next Generation Threat Prevention solutions with intelligence generated by FireEye’s virtual machines to give joint customers the industry’s largest library of threat intelligence currently available.
- Near-real time sharing: The threat landscape is constantly, with attackers often shifting between random attacks and customizing unique payloads targeted at specific organizations. To protect customers, Check Point and FireEye will update threat information in near-real time within an organization’s environment, enabling protection in a threat landscape where even a delay of one hour can result in a breach.
“The threat landscape is changing every day, with new actors and attack methods emerging faster than ever before,” said Amnon Bar-Lev, President, Check Point Software Technologies. “We’ve arrived at a point in time where the best way to battle cyber threats is to join forces and share knowledge around the attacks and attempts that are occurring, so that we can provide a deeper level of security to our customers.”
“By bringing together the threat intelligence and detection capabilities of both FireEye and Check Point, customers are holistically protected from advanced attacks across all egress points, said David DeWalt, FireEye CEO and chairman of the board. “This partnership is as a model for vendor cooperation that will help enterprises defend themselves against the most sophisticated cyberattacks.”
