FYI, this story is more than a year old

Check Point Software Technologies has introduced Software-defined Protection (SDP), billed as a revolutionary security architecture that can protect organisations in today’s fast-evolving IT and threat landscape.

Software-defined Protection offers modern security today that can effectively protect against tomorrow’s threats, through a design that is modular, agile and most importantly, secure.

SDP is a three-layer security architecture comprised of enforcement, control and management layers.

This framework decouples the control layer from the enforcement layer, enabling robust and highly-reliable enforcement points that obtain real-time protection updates from a software-based control layer. SDP converts threat intelligence into immediate protections and is managed by a modular and open management structure.

“The threat landscape has become far more sophisticated while at the same time, enterprise IT environments have grown in complexity," says Amnon Bar-Lev, president, Check Point Software Technologies.

"Enterprises are looking for advice on how they can become more secure, but in a way that is manageable and simple to use. SDP is today’s security architecture for tomorrow’s threats; it is simple, flexible and can robustly convert threat intelligence into real-time protections."

“By offering a security architecture driven by function, threat and need, Check Point’s Software-defined Protection architectural blueprint can help IT better redesign their enterprise security network to accommodate both today’s IT borderless environment and the dynamic threat landscape,” adds Charles Kolodgy, research vice president, IDC Security Products team.
