MENLO PARK, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 13, 2016) - Menlo Security, a pioneer of cloud-based malware isolation, today announced a partnership to help organizations protect their users from Web and email attacks by integrating the Menlo Security Isolation Platform with Check Point's (NASDAQ: CHKP) Industry-Leading Next-Generation Firewalls and vSEC Virtual Edition Gateways. With this partnership, Check Point's security gateways can selectively steer network traffic to Menlo Security's Isolation Platform based on policy controls.
"Menlo Security's Isolation Platform is a great complement to Check Point's Next-Generation Firewalls and vSEC Virtual Edition Gateways enabling our customers to prevent threats from Web and email attack vectors," said Alon Kantor, vice president of business development at Check Point Software. "The seamless integration of our technologies enables customers to deploy cutting edge solutions in an increasingly complex and cloud-oriented security environment. Now, our customers can prevent future attacks by isolating Web browsers and email applications with the full range of protection provided by the Check Point Software Blade architecture."
Unlike current threat prevention systems that attempt to distinguish good content from bad, Menlo Security isolates and executes Web and email content in its cloud-based Isolation Platform, before it reaches user devices. This ensures no content can reach the end user's device, thus keeping it safe from malware. Joint Check Point and Menlo Security customers can now easily set policies to determine which traffic types and user groups pass from Check Point's gateways to the Menlo Security Isolation Platform. Customers deploying the joint solution will benefit from:
- Complete isolation of Web and email content via Menlo's Isolation Platform
- Streamlined deployment with integrated security policies
- Seamless end user experience
"Our collaboration with Check Point gives our joint customers flexible deployment options that fit within their existing security architectures," said Poornima DeBolle, chief product officer at Menlo Security. "This work ensures that whether the deployment is in a private or public cloud, we can deliver a validated enterprise scale implementation. The partnership is a significant expansion of Menlo's Technology Partner Program, reinforcing our commitment to customer success."
