Check Point's Data Security Brings Proven Encryption to Enterprise Endpoints

REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - November 4, 2009) - Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced that Gartner, Inc. has placed Check Point in the leaders quadrant in the research company's recent Magic Quadrant for Mobile Data Protection.(1)

"We believe Check Point's leader position reflects our strong vision and execution in delivering to businesses secure and simple to use data protection solutions," said Juliette Sultan, head of global marketing at Check Point. "Check Point data encryption products are preferred by companies across the globe because of the products' scalability, ease of deployment, and unified management and client with endpoint security."

In addition to Full Disk Encryption for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux-based computers, Check Point offers customers port and removable media protection through Check Point Media Encryption and mobile phone encryption. The solutions can be deployed independently or as part of Check Point Endpoint Security, the first and only single agent that combines all the critical components for total security on the endpoint. Check Point encryption products are quick and simple to deploy, scale to any size organization, are proven in many industry and government deployments around the world, and support the broadest set of platforms.

According to Gartner, "Leaders have products that work well for Gartner clients in small and large deployments. They have long-term road maps that follow and/or influence Gartner's vision of the developing needs of buyers in the market. Leaders make their competitors' sales staffs nervous and force competitors' technical staffs to follow their lead. Their MDP products are well-known to clients, and they are frequently found on RFP shortlists."

"Check Point data security products assure businesses that their information is secure," said Alberto Dosal, president and chief executive officer at Compuquip Technologies. "In addition to industry-leading encryption capabilities, Check Point's solutions require minimal administration and end-user involvement, thereby reducing operational costs for customers."

Check Point's Mobile Data Protection leader position is based on an evaluation of completeness of vision and ability to execute. Magic Quadrant Research is a qualitative evaluation of a set of vendors in a specific market. For more information about Check Point Data Security solutions, visit
