Press Release by Check Point Software Technologies Wed 31 Jan 2024

Check Point Software Technologies has unveiled the Infinity AI Copilot, its first-generation AI-powered cybersecurity solution.

This tool is designed to address the global shortage of cybersecurity practitioners by enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of security teams through intelligent Generative AI automation and support.

Empowering Security Teams with AI

As cyberthreats continue to escalate, with ransomware attacks surging by 90% in 2023, the need for advanced solutions has become more critical.

Eyal Manor, VP of Product Management at Check Point Software Technologies, said: “With Infinity AI Copilot, we are ushering in a new era of cybersecurity where human-machine collaboration takes center stage.”

The Infinity AI Copilot, trained on 30 years of cybersecurity intelligence, aims to automate complex security tasks and offer proactive solutions to threats, allowing security teams to concentrate on strategic innovation.

This tool integrates seamlessly across the Check Point Infinity Platform, ensuring a unified security experience from endpoint to cloud.

Addressing Cybersecurity Challenges and Talent Shortage

The launch of Infinity AI Copilot comes at a time when the industry is grappling with a shortage of skilled cybersecurity professionals.

Frank Dickson, Group Vice President at IDC, said: “Leveraging AI to drive better security outcomes is top of mind for CISOs, as they address both the expanding threat landscape and the cybersecurity talent shortage. When selecting an AI-powered cyber security solution, CISOs are looking for a return on investment through increased productivity and better efficacy.”

Infinity AI Copilot is currently available in preview, with a full launch expected in Q2 2024. Future developments include proactive assistance and autonomous policy management features.

Check Point Reveals Partner Program

In addition to the Infinity AI Copilot, Check Point Software has announced a new Partner Program to strengthen partner capabilities and support industry growth.

Francisco Criado, Check Point’s VP of Global Partner Ecosystem Organization, said: “”In light of the current climate and increasing rate of cyberthreats, we are launching a new, partner program to help our partners accelerate their efforts in providing the best cybersecurity.”

This program is designed to enhance partner performance, streamline operations, and enable partners to leverage Check Point’s comprehensive security solutions more effectively.

“Check Point has completely transformed its Partner Program, signalling a significant shift in approach. The structure of the program enables us to develop stronger competencies and deliver more value to our customers,” said Kin Mitra, President and CEO at Mission Critical Systems.

The enhanced Partner Program is strategically aligned with Check Point’s end-to-end AI-powered, cloud-delivered security platform, enabling partners to address a broad spectrum of cybersecurity challenges and opportunities.

Molly Rouch, President and Co-Founder of Six Degrees Consulting said: “The program’s focus on specialisation and certification aligns with our commitment to provide top-tier security services, ensuring that our clients receive the best possible protection against potential threats.”

According to Canalys, cybersecurity spending recently hit £14.9 billion ($19 billion), reflecting the increasing need for collaborative security solutions.

“The streamlined process and transparent decision-making shorten our sales cycle, empowering quick client decisions,” said Jörg Posewang, CEO at NetUSE.

As technology evolves, so do cyberthreats. Organisations are increasingly turning to the channel for guidance on their cybersecurity solutions, as well as for regulations and building cyber resilience.

Channel partners are well positioned to effectively communicate the value of cybersecurity solutions, while addressing specific needs and concerns regarding existing and future threats.

Han Juat Hoon, Chief Operating Officer at M.TECH Products Pte Ltd, said: “This updated partner program introduces innovative aspects, notably the Private Early Availability Program, which affords our esteemed business partners and internal teams early access to forthcoming releases, on-site support and the opportunity to influence cybersecurity products, helping us to stay ahead in the dynamic cybersecurity landscape.
