Check Point Software Technologies is proud to be named a Leader in the 2020 Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls (NFW). This marks the 21st time in the company’s history to be named a Leader by Gartner.
We believe, Gartner’s recently published 2020 Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls report lauds Check Point for its consolidated architecture, complete cloud security offering and its strong product vision.
We invite you to be the first to get your hands on the coveted report:
Check Point expertise in the network security market is supported by receiving high regards for performance, prevention and product integration including the following security innovations:
High-performance data center firewalls and cloud security were mentioned in the report as benefits and while we use the latest security services and network firewalls, our security is only as strong as our ability to manage it. A strength that has long held true is Check Point’s centralized security management which has again been highlighted in the report for its leading capabilities.
Taking a step further, Smart-1 Cloud, takes that best security management and delivers it from the cloud. Smart-1 Cloud allows for zero maintenance of your gateways, as it automatically monitors and backs up operations in the user’s security management system.
Let’s not forget why we’re here, we have been positioned as a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls, for providing products and solutions that fit every use case.
Check Point Infinity architecture and the extension of Quantum Security Gateways™ provides superior security beyond any Next Generation Firewall (NGFW). Featuring Sandblast Network’s protection, these gateways are the best at preventing the fifth generation of cyber attacks with more than 60 innovative security services:
In our opinion, Check Point’s placement as a Magic Quadrant Leader in the Network Firewall market solidifies Check Point’s top position to all customers and channel partners alike. This achievement represents Check Point’s primary value of consolidation via the Check Point Infinity Architecture and commitment of prevention to protect customers from emerging threats. And at the same time, meeting their evolving needs of the post pandemic era around networks, cloud, mobile, endpoint and IOT security.
