CPX 360 Munich

March 2023 by Manuel Langhans, Global Security Mag

Munich hosts this year’s edition of Check Point’s Cyber Security Summit CPX 360, giving an insight in new solutions and best practices

Today, March 15, the 2023 edition of Check Point’s Cyber Security Summit CPX 360 opened its doors for all interested parties. After a humorous introduction mentioning anomalies in work environments due to Covid-19 related problems, Check Point’s CEO Gil Shwed got to the more serious challenge to keep businesses secure in the fast developing work environment, with the shift to more remote accesses being accelerated by the pandemic.

It is a noticeable fact that cyber attacks increase in number and are getting more sophisticated. This is amongst other developments due to the more frequent involvement of sovereign states in cyber warfare. To assure a secure work environment, Check Point relies on a “prevent not just detect” strategy evolving around their 3 capital Cs approach: Comprehensive, meaning a solid prevention across all possible attack vectors, Consolidated, standing for a unified security management approach and Collaborative, using real-time shared threat intelligence.

Check Point wants to be able to prevent attacks instead of merely detecting them and thus builds its solutions in a way that the whole security environment throughout network, cloud and remote users learns and acts, even if just a single vector is targeted. The challenge here is clearly the increasing number of permutations, which Check Point tries to counter by 30 years of threat intelligence. Their Infinity Portal englobes Quantum to secure the network, Cloudgard for cloud security and Harmony for User & Device Security, all able to work together to assure a holistic cyber security solution.

This year, according to CEO Gil Shwed, a big focus lies on AI and within that both on the threats evolving by its misuse and on the beneficial use it can be put to in order to help prevent attacks. Check Point’s Threatcloud AI uses deep learning based on 30 years of data to help in the detection of upcoming threats.

Generally speaking, Check Point advises its costumers to think about moving away from a confusing and hard to secure multi-vendor approach with costumers having a lot of different security solutions and protocols and instead to turn to an easier to handle overall cyber security management solution.

Interviews with President Rupal Hollenbeck and Eyal Manor, VP of Product Management to follow.
