NEW YORK, July 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Fireglass, the leader in web isolation, and Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), today announced a new partnership that enables organizations to protect their users from advanced threats by completely eliminating attack vectors including browsers, emails and documents.
"Fireglass complements Check Point Next Generation Firewalls and SandBlast Zero-Day Protection as its isolation technology seamlessly and comprehensively integrates with our solutions," said Alon Kantor, Vice President of Business Development at Check Point Software. "Integrating Check Point Next-Generation Firewalls and SandBlast Zero-Day Protection with the Fireglass Threat Isolation Platform allows our customers to prevent threats, known or unknown, by deploying a future-proof solution that leverages the full range of protection provided by the Check Point Software Blade architecture."
Unlike conventional prevention solutions that attempt to distinguish good content from bad, Fireglass isolates and executes all content in a secure remote environment, and prevents malware, phishing and other advanced threats from ever reaching users' devices. The Fireglass Threat Isolation Platform seamlessly integrates with Check Point Next Generation Firewalls via UserCheck for maximum compatibility and zero performance impact. It also enables Check Point SandBlast Zero-Day Protection to scan and sanitize files before they are downloaded through the browser.
The integration of Fireglass with Check Point Next Generation Firewalls and SandBlast Zero-Day Protection further allows customers to direct any portion of web traffic via policy, and provides a comprehensive security solution that:
- Prevents malware and other modern threats delivered through the web from infecting users' devices
- Allows access to uncategorized websites safely and without risk
- Enables access to documents through isolation rather than through download
- Inspects and removes exploitable content from files before downloading
- Prevents phishing attacks by blocking submission of credentials to malicious websites
- Blocks Remote Access Trojans and Command & Control communication
"The Check Point and Fireglass partnership provides our joint customers with flexible and seamless deployment options that fit their existing security architectures," said Guy Guzner, CEO and Co-Founder at Fireglass. "The combined solution provides enterprises effective real-time prevention against the ever-changing threat landscape."
