RSA And Check Point Team Up To Offer Consumers Enhanced Protection Against Online Attacks

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.

RSA is supplying real-time online threat intelligence feeds from its RSA FraudAction Anti-Trojan and Anti-Phishing services to Check Point's solutions. 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."

It has shut down more than 300,000 illicit web sites across 140 countries to date. RSA's online fraud analysts operate from the RSA ® Anti-Fraud Command Center to shut down hosted online attacks, deploy countermeasures, and conduct extensive forensic work to reduce the average lifetime of an online attack. RSA FraudAction service is a component of the RSA Identity Protection and Verification Suite, one of the most complete and innovative Software-as-a-Service portfolios of strong authentication and anti-fraud technologies.

"Our relationship with Check Point is another example that inventive collaboration between industry leaders can expand our collective abilities to protect consumers against ever-evolving online threats. This brings more value to our users by integrating real-time detection and blocking capabilities on a wider scale," said Christopher Young, Senior Vice President, Technology, Products and Markets at RSA. "Together, we can grow an even stronger security ecosystem in order to become a more effective and organized entity against the vast underground network of fraudsters."
