REDWOOD CITY, CA--(Marketwire - May 31, 2011) - Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, was announced a winner of "The Ten Best Web Support Sites of 2011" by The Association of Support Professionals (ASP) for a third year, recognizing Check Point's excellence in online service and support. The Check Point Support Center features enhanced knowledge base resources, user forums, as well as Live Chat and Remote Access capabilities that have contributed to improved customer satisfaction rates.

"For most technology companies, web support sites have become the primary channel for interacting with their user community and often a well-executed web support strategy leads to more customer loyalty," said Jeffrey Tarter, executive director of the Association of Support Professionals. "Check Point has developed a site with a rich set of features, all elegantly integrated in terms of navigation and logical workflow. For users, the Check Point site delivers a very friendly customer experience."

The ASP award winners were determined by a panel of judges with expertise in web support using a scoring system based on 25 separate criteria, including overall design, navigation, search implementation and customer experience. Check Point's solutions and real-time support ensure customers have 24/7 access to the critical resources they need to keep their organizations protected.

"When it comes to IT security and support, every minute counts.
