BEDFORD, Mass., June 7 /PRNewswire/ -- RSA, The Security Division of EMC (NYSE: EMC) announced a technology agreement with Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, to provide consumers around the globe with enhanced, real-time protection against Trojan, phishing and other online attacks.

This new capacity is integrated into the existing anti-phishing functionality available in all ZoneAlarm premium consumer products including ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite and ZoneAlarm Extreme Security to provide consumers world-wide with enhanced and proactive protection against online attacks.

"Leveraging external threat information from RSA enables Check Point to strengthen its detection and analysis capabilities and offer superior protection to our customers," said Bari Abdul, vice president of consumer sales, Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. "The implementation of anti-Trojan filtering and identity theft protection helps address some of the key customer needs and pain points. We are pleased to add RSA to our list of technology partners as we work together to provide customers with strong levels of protection."
