“We have been running the Avanan + Check Point solution as pre-release for several months and have seen tremendous interest from both existing Check Point customers as well as new prospects. Both want to protect their corporate SaaS using a vendor they already trust,” said Gil Friedrich, CEO and cofounder of Avanan. “Before today, these best-of-breed security products were just not available for the enterprise SaaS.”
These cloud-native versions of Check Point’s most popular privacy and compliance products are only available on the Avanan platform. When combined with Avanan’s automated response and remediation engine, they offer the industry’s most complete, defense-in-depth, policy governance solution.
“Through the integration with Avanan, our customers can now use the same Check Point products they know to protect their data in the cloud,” said Alon Kantor, VP of business development for Check Point. “This expands our product suite into an area that our customers are most concerned about – SaaS security.”
Avanan’s “one-click” deployment allows customers to deploy a new security solution in seconds. Because it requires no appliance, agent or gateway proxy, Avanan can begin protecting a SaaS account immediately, with no effect on users.
