Check Point has integrated Check Point security appliances and the Check Point R80 SmartConsole security management console with Microsoft Azure Information Protection (AIP), to prevent damaging losses and leaks of sensitive business data.
The integration of Check Point’s advanced policy enforcement capabilities with Microsoft AIP’s file classification and protection features enables enterprises to keep their business data and IP secure, irrespective of how it is shared. This prevents organizations’ employees from accidently sending sensitive business data outside of the corporate network by Microsoft Outlook and Exchange, and extends complete data leak protection capabilities to popular web services such as Gmail, Dropbox, FTP and Box.
According to the 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, 35 percent of all the near-42,000 breaches analyzed occurred as a result of human error. The integration between Check Point’s solutions and Microsoft AIP stops these accidental breaches occurring. It also enables organizations’ security and IT teams to track and control the exposure of sensitive information, and to take corrective measures to prevent data leakage or misuse. This gives Check Point and Microsoft customers a truly comprehensive Data Leak Prevention solution which consistently enforces relevant data governance actions, no matter where data is stored or who it is shared with.
