Check Point has announced that its R80 unified security software is now available as a cloud service. This gives customers the quickest route to deploying Check Point’s unified security management across their entire network fabric from their web browser, with no deployment time needed, and no need for ongoing maintenance or manual updates.
The new R80 Security Management-as-a-Service (MaaS) solution extends Check Point’s Fast Track Network Security suite of solutions to deliver unprecedented protection, scalability, and ease of deployment and control for enterprises. R80 Security MaaS gives holistic visibility of security across organizations’ entire infrastructures in a customizable visual dashboard, enabling the most complex environments to be managed more efficiently, cutting operational time by up to 60% compared with other solutions.
R80 is the industry’s most advanced unified security software for on-premise and cloud environments, with over 160 technology integrations. The latest version, R80.40 has over 100 new features to extend protection, streamline operational processes and enhance productivity. R80 Security MaaS delivers:
