Cyber Security Luminary Gil Shwed To Keynote EFI Connect 2014 Conference

FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EFI™ (Nasdaq:EFII), a world leader in customer-focused digital printing innovation, today announced that Gil Shwed, founder, chairman and CEO of Check Point ® Software Technologies, will participate in a "fireside chat" Q&A session with EFI CEO Guy Gecht at the company's 14th annual EFI Connect Users Conference, being held from January 21-24, 2014 at The Wynn Las Vegas.

Shwed, the inventor of the modern Firewall, has led Check Point to becoming the world's most successful Internet security technology company. He has received numerous accolades for his professional and personal achievements, including an honorary doctorate of science from the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology and a Global Leader for Tomorrow award from the World Economic Forum. In 2003, Shwed was honored alongside Bill Clinton, Bono and several Nobel laureates as a winner of the Academy of Achievement's Golden Plate award.

Check Point is the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, providing customers with uncompromised protection against all types of threats, including zero-day attacks. The company continues to break new ground in the industry, based on its Software Blade Architecture, which provides customers with flexible and simple solutions that can be fully customized to meet the exact security needs of any organization. "Internet security is something businesses of all sizes need to understand if they are going to navigate the ever-evolving threats in our 24x7 connected world," said Gecht. "Gil has unique and visionary views, and I could not have asked for a better expert to come to Connect and address this increasingly important topic."

"I am excited to speak at EFI's Connect conference to share my views and experiences from 20 years of working with businesses worldwide," said Shwed. "After the fireside chat keynote session, attendees will be better informed about the increasing risks of cyber threats."
