Check Point Software Technologies Transforms Email Security Again: Patented Unified Administration Boosts Efficacy and Improves Productivity

Gil Friedrich, Vice President of Email Security at Check Point Software Technologies

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), a leading AI-powered, cloud-delivered cyber security platform provider, today announced new email security features that enhance its Check Point Harmony Email & Collaboration portfolio: Patented unified quarantine, DMARC monitoring, archiving, and Smart Banners. Since 2023, Check Point has released over 75 new features for Harmony Email & Collaboration, further strengthening collaborative email security with preventative measures to combat the growing threat of cyber-attacks. The addition of these new features allows for leading protection against advanced threats on a single screen.

Despite the rise of sophisticated cyber defence technologies, email remains the primary conduit for cyber attacks, encompassing phishing attempts, malware, and business email compromise (BEC) scams. According to a CISA assessment, within the first 10 minutes of receiving a malicious email, 84% of employees took the bait by either replying with sensitive information or interacting with a spoofed link or attachment. With phishing attacks being further enhanced by AI to make them even more convincing, it is crucial that organisations give email security top priority.

“As a leading provider of email security solutions, we strive to consistently deliver complete security with our Archiving and DMARC capabilities, as well as drive innovation through our recent U.S. patent for unified quarantine,” said Gil Friedrich, Vice President of Email Security. “With threat actors finding new ways to weaponize email, we continue to pioneer a comprehensive, 360-degree security solution that proactively counters sophisticated phishing tactics wherever they may occur.”

The increasing complexity of email-based threats requires advanced protection strategies, including AI-powered detection mechanisms. As part of the Check Point Infinity Platform, Harmony Email & Collaboration features include:

  • Unified Quarantine: This patented feature streamlines email management by allowing administrators and end-users to view and restore all quarantined emails from both Microsoft and Harmony Email through a single, integrated Check Point screen, simplifying the process and reducing administrative effort and redundant friction with end users
  • DMARC Monitoring: Allows organisations to protect their brand reputation and prevent impersonation attacks on their customers and partners by maintaining a strict DMARC policy, without impacting business operations
  • Archiving: Enables the storage of all internal, incoming and outgoing emails for many years, as well as importing archives from competitors, and to support disaster recovery and legal use cases
  • Smart Banners: Educates users on cyber security directly within their emails, promoting policy compliance and enabling precise reporting of suspicious, yet subtly malicious, emails 

“Partnering with Check Point offered the most comprehensive and effective solution,” says Kinson Chan, Chief Executive Officer for eSix. “We chose Check Point for its strong reputation in the cybersecurity industry, ability to offer a comprehensive security solution and its commitment to keeping pace with emerging threats.”
