Check Point Reinvents Security and Compliance Monitoring 
New Check Point Compliance Software Blade Represents First Integrated
and Automated Security and Compliance Monitoring Solution 
SAN CARLOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/06/13 --   Check Point(R)
Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in
securing the Internet, today introduced the new Check Point
Compliance Software Blade, an integrated real-time compliance
monitoring solution that leverages an extensive knowledge of
regulatory requirements and IT security best practices. The
Compliance Software Blade ensures that security policies are aligned
with global regulations and validates that appropriate security
levels are maintained -- shortening audit times, improving security
and reducing costs for businesses. The new solution is fully
integrated into the Check Point Software Blade Architecture,
providing a complete view of compliance status across Check Point
Gateways and Network Security Software Blades. 
The ever-increasing number of regulations and the rise of
sophisticated threats have placed unprecedented pressure on IT
security professionals to meet external compliance requirements and
internal security mandates. The Check Point Compliance Software Blade
alleviates enterprise-wide ri
sks by translating thousands of complex
regulatory requirements into security best practices. The new
compliance solution constantly monitors policy configurations on
Check Point software blades to provide actionable recommendations
with over 250 security best practices. The difficulty of maintaining
compliance and preparing for regulatory audits is simplified with
automated reports for compliance with top regulations. 
"The Check Point Compliance Software Blade acts as a second set of
eyes for security administrators -- looking over any modifications
they make and alerting them to any potential compliance issues. A
crowning feature of the solution is that it recommends policy changes
and brings noncompliant issues into compliance, enhancing the
security of our organization," said Tim Bulu, information security
officer at University of South Florida Health. "I can rest assured
and trust that with dynamic assessments and frequent updates from
Check Point my organization will continue to stay aligned with
regulations." 
"Organizations face an overwhelming pressure to comply with a vast
number of regulations under unclear guidance," said Mati Ram, head of
Governance, Risk and Compliance for Check Point Software
Technologies. "The Compliance Software Blade makes it very simple for
customers to establish security policies that adhere to a wide range
of global regulations, and reinforces the importance of making
security part of the business process." 
The Check Point SmartDashboard management interface provides a 360
degrees  view of compliance making it easy for businesses to control,
document and report on the organization's security compliance
posture. Since the new solution is fully integrated into the Check
Point Software Blade Architecture every policy adjustment is checked
for compliance including changes made to all Check Point Network
Security Software Blades, including Firewall, IPS, Anti-Bot, DLP, and
Application Control. The solution provides automatic compliance
alerts notifying users on the impact of their security decisions and
bringing regulatory considerations to the forefront of security
management. Also, the new compliance solution can be expanded to
provide a wide-range of Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC)
capabilities with easy2comply.
