Check Point Revolutionizes Attack Prevention With Leading-Edge Threat Emulation

New Check Point Threat Emulation Software Blade Is the First Solution That Prevents Infections From New Exploits, Undiscovered Threats and Targeted Attacks

SAN CARLOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/26/13 -- RSA CONFERENCE 2013 -- Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced a new Threat Emulation Software Blade that prevents infections from undiscovered exploits, zero-day and targeted attacks. This innovative solution quickly inspects suspicious files, emulates how they run to discover malicious behavior and completely prevents malware from entering the network. Check Point Threat Emulation also immediately reports new threats to Check Point's ThreatCloud™ service and automatically shares the newly identified threats with other customers.

Cybercriminals use a variety of new and evolving techniques to avoid detection -- in fact, an average of 70,000 to 100,000 new malware samples are created and distributed every day(1)! Traditional solutions have focused on detection, providing notifications after a threat has breached the network. With Check Point Threat Emulation technology, new threats are blocked and infection does not occur. When no infection occurs, the time, effort, and headaches for infection remediation are eliminated.

"Unknown exposures and zero-day exploits are top attack vectors in today's network environments, primarily because they have the ability to avoid traditional malware detection -- making it hard for organizations to keep up with the sheer volume of threats," said Dorit Dor, vice president of products at Check Point Software Technologies. "Our new Threat Emulation software blade not only detects, but is the first solution to prevent infections from the initial contact, empowering our customers to block undiscovered malware attacks, before they threaten network security or disturb the flow of business."

Check Point Threat Emulation prevents threats by vetting downloaded files and common email attachments such as Adobe PDFs and Microsoft Office files. Suspicious files are opened inside the Threat Emulation sandbox and are simultaneously monitored for unusual system behavior, including abnormal system registry changes, network connections or system processes -- providing real-time assessment of the file's behavior. If files are found to be malicious they are blocked inline at the gateway. Newly discovered signatures are immediately shared with Check Point ThreatCloud™ and distributed to subscribed gateways for automatic protection against the new malware.

Check Point Threat Emulation is an integral part of Check Point's leading multi-layered Threat Prevention solution. This complementary suite of Check Point Software blades includes: IPS Software Blade that stops exploits of known vulnerabilities, the Anti-Bot Software Blade that detects and prevents bot damage, and the Antivirus Software Blade that blocks downloads of malware infested files.

Check Point Threat Emulation provides customers with flexible deployment options within either dedicated appliances or through cloud-based service. Emulation and reporting can be managed using Check Point's management console from any gateway, with local device management available for dedicated appliances.

"Cyber-attacks continue to grow in sophistication and cybercriminals are putting in considerable effort to ensure that their malware is undetectable using standard methods. This threat environment is making it harder for enterprises to protect their valuable assets," said Charles Kolodgy, research vice president at IDC. "The security industry has recognized this need and is engineering advanced techniques that can discover and prevent evasive malware. Check Point's Threat Emulation Software Blade can turn the tables, making it more difficult for cybercriminals to steal valuable assets."

The Threat Emulation Software Blade will be available for purchase through the Check Point worldwide network of value-added resellers in the second quarter of 2013.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
