How does Check Point’s security system protect us from cyber-attacks?

14 Nov, 2023

In the field of IT – IPS solution, cyber security is the most important detail in the proper management and operation of the company’s network. Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) – network intrusion prevention system is one of the most popular and trusted solutions.

What is Check Point and what does it offer?

Check Point  is an American-Israeli multinational corporation that creates software and hardware products to protect against network, cloud, mobile and database cyber threats.
The company offers various solutions for the safe operation and development of the network:

Infinity Vision
It is the gold standard of cyber security for corporations. Provides threat prevention with a unified service from a single point across networks, cloud, mobile and other remote devices.
 

Quantum Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS)

IPS technology is software and hardware support for network, cloud, mobile or data protection that examines traffic flows, identifies vulnerable systems and protects them from cyber attacks. Basically, 3 types of cyber attacks are distinguished:
Brute Force Attack (so-called full attack) – attack on passwords, authentication data, encrypted codes;
DoS Attack (so-called denial of service)- loss of access to websites;
Vulnerability Exploitation Attacks – Attack on the weak points of the IT system. Before the security panel is activated, attackers have an average time to gain control over the entire system.
Check Point’s IPS ensures that these attacks are quickly blocked. The system strictly controls the flow of packets, enhances safe protocols, and blocks dangerous protocols.

Check Point - IPS Features

Brute Force Attack
DoS Attack
Vulnerability Exploitation Attacks
 
A segment of code or program that takes advantage of a system’s security weakness, penetrates the system and installs Trojans, bugs, or viruses
 
Any cyber attack, from a bot to a system outage, is a threat
The tunneling protocol is responsible for the reliability and security of data transmission. However, as soon as security is weakened, the danger of data leakage immediately arises.
For the safety of outgoing communications, control hubs (Gateway) are created, which filter information from the network.
 
Both are cyber security systems, the only difference is in their functions. IPS is an active security system, it provides protection as well as threat prevention. Whereas, IDS belongs to the passive protection system and focuses on threat detection. After which it transmits a signal and warns the security system about the detected danger.

How does IPS detect threats?

  • Signature
    Packets are dropped onto the network, which the IDS compares to predefined attack patterns known as signatures.
  • Statistical anomalies
    An IDS monitors network traffic and compares it to an established baseline. This line defines what is normal for the network and what protocols are used. However, if the baselines are not configured correctly, this can cause false alarms.
  • Structural protocol analysis
    This method distinguishes protocols from each other, observes and compares past events through pre-built profiles.

Users Ratings

Major customers of Check Point’s IPS include Mitsubishi, Teliasonera, Electrolux, Hewlett Packard, Neopharm and others. Annual service packages are priced from $1,500 to $6,500.
