How have your regional strategies changed in recent months?
During the year we have seen an increase in targeted cyber-attacks and the need to adapt Gen V became more relevant than ever. Check Point Software continues to stick with its strategy of prevention first approach, easy to deploy and manage and fully integrated solutions enabling consolidation. Businesses are now confronting the 5th Generation (Gen V) cyber-threat landscape and cyber attackers have become more advanced and complex.
Customers are looking for robust security solutions to combat and prevent these increasing threats. This year’s GITEX provides an opportunity to educate the customers on the importance of having Generation V solutions to battle the current threat landscape and showcase Check Point Software’s products and solutions that provide end-to-end security from enterprise and cloud to mobile workers’ personal devices.
