Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd., the leading provider of cybersecurity solutions globally, today announces it was named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for Unified Threat Management. Gartner defines United Threat Management as “a multifunction network security product used by small or midsize businesses (SMBs). Typically, midsize businesses have 100 to 1,000 employees. UTM vendors continually add new functions on the UTM platforms, and therefore they encompass the feature set of many other network security solutions, including, but not limited to:
Intrusion prevention systems (IPSs)
Routing and WAN connectivity
Secure web gateway
Secure email gateway
Therefore, this market focuses on the UTM products used by midsize businesses. Midsize organizations frequently manage the technology with in-house IT staff, or use a managed security service provider (MSSP) to handle the operational maintenance of the appliance, manage the configuration or handle the security monitoring.”
“We believe being named a 2018 Gartner Peer Insights Customers’ Choice for United Threat Management is a reflection on Check Point’s commitment to our partners and customers in providing top-tier cyber security solutions, along with an exceptional customer experience to support it,” said Peter Alexander, Chief Marketing Officer at Check Point. “We are grateful to our customers and the feedback they provided on Gartner Peer Insights. We will remain committed to innovating while executing our product roadmap, and meeting the needs of our customers.”
