Check Point Pioneers Revolutionary Cyber Intelligence Marketplace: ThreatCloud IntelliStore

The Only Platform That Transforms Threat Intelligence From Multiple Sources Into Attack Prevention; Launches Today With Industry-Leading Partners

BARCELONA, SPAIN -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Check Point Experience 2014 -- Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced the launch and immediate availability of ThreatCloud IntelliStore, a unique threat intelligence marketplace that enables organizations to select intelligence feeds that will automatically prevent cyberattacks. This new offering builds on Check Point's core security intelligence infrastructure: ThreatCloud™, the industry's largest real-time big data security infrastructure, which delivers threat data from a worldwide network of threat sensors.

Organizations need customizable threat intelligence that can be immediately used within their network environments to prevent cyberattacks from occurring. Today however, sources for threat intelligence are fragmented, and offered by numerous vendors for specific countries and verticals. Check Point's exciting advancement in security architecture, Software-defined Protection (SDP), makes threat prevention simple and flexible, quickly converting threat intelligence into real-time protections.

ThreatCloud IntelliStore launches with several industry-leading partners -- iSIGHT Partners, CrowdStrike, IID, NetClean, PhishLabs, SenseCy, and ThreatGRID to offer actionable threat intelligence to customers worldwide. Customers can select and customize intelligence feeds from a variety of sources according to their organizations' needs in specific geographies, vertical industries, and protection types. It establishes a single source for the most relevant feeds that can automatically be translated into security protections to stop threats on Check Point gateways, leveraging the existing infrastructure and policies already established by an enterprise.

"We are extremely excited to launch the ThreatCloud IntelliStore. It's a groundbreaking collaboration that seeks to eliminate the current fragmentation of the threat intelligence market and is the first platform to automatically aggregate threat intelligence feeds for real prevention," said Dorit Dor, vice president of products at Check Point Software Technologies. "As the only provider of customizable intelligence from various sources, we are proud and excited to offer ThreatCloud IntelliStore as an innovative solution and service that no other vendors offer."

ThreatCloud IntelliStore launches today with a number of best-of-breed intelligence partners, with more to follow:
