Check Point® Software Technologies, a leading provider of cyber security solutions globally, announced that its enhanced Harmony Connect Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) allows: 

  • Zero-trust connectivity to corporate applications with cloud delivered VPN-as-a-service 
  • Improved connectivity speed worldwide with new global points-of-presence 
  • Increased security for your environment thanks to device posture validation for remote user devices 

With many organizations working remotely, and some even permanently shifting to hybrid or remote work models, these new enhancements and capabilities make it easier than ever to protect remote and hybrid workforces and branch offices against Gen V cyber-threats as they connect to any resource from any device, anywhere. 

The SASE model addresses the limitations of traditional network architectures converging networking and security in the cloud. Implementing a SASE framework has many advantages for organizations that need to support growing numbers of remote workers and branch offices while prioritizing security and threat prevention. According to Gartner® , “By 2025, at least 60% of enterprises will have explicit strategies and timelines for SASE adoption encompassing user, branch and edge access, up from 10% in 2020..”1 Harmony Connect SASE offers the only prevention-focused SASE solution with a 100% catch rate for malware threats. This enables enterprises to adopt new security paradigms that harness the power of the cloud for improved scalability, unified management, user experience and speed, while preventing and blocking the most evasive cyber attacks before they can disrupt business. 

John Grady, Network Security Analysts at ESG, said, “Enterprises are becoming more distributed, expanding their perimeters and increasing the risk of sophisticated network security attacks. This increased complexity requires centralized and consistent security policy management across the network. Secure Access Services Edge (SASE) is a reference architecture that addresses the security challenges of the distributed enterprise”, “Check Point’s Harmony Connect SASE solution takes a security-first approach by delivering core unified cloud security services, including next-generation firewall, advanced threat prevention, secure web gateway, zero-trust network access, data loss prevention and intrusion prevention (IPS). Check Point Software also integrates with leading networking companies to provide enterprises the flexibility to combine the best security with the best network performance.” 

David Antlitz, Global Manager, Security and Firewall Technologies, WR Grace, said, “WR Grace is global chemical manufacturer with 5,000 users in over 40 countries. By leveraging Harmony Connect’s Firewall as a Service and Harmony Office and Email, we can protect our users, offices and applications wherever they are located,” “Harmony Connect SASE’s unified management allows us to address the challenges of remote connectivity, applying one unified security policy across our enterprise and simplifying administration while still delivering the highest level of security.”
