Check Point Software has announced the acquisition of Dome9 of Tel Aviv, Israel. This acquisition enhances Check Point’s fully consolidated Infinity architecture and its Cloud Security offering with advanced active policy enforcement and multi-cloud protection capabilities.

Founded in 2011, Dome9 has built a strong reputation for enabling security and compliance for rapid  public cloud adoption. Dome9 customers use its platform to secure multi-cloud deployments across Amazon AWS, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud. The company provides significant cloud-native security capabilities including intuitive visualisation of security posture, compliance and governance automation, privileged identity protection and cloud traffic and event analysis, enabling cloud deployments safer and more manageable.

As the use of cloud services significantly increases and cyber-attacks on cloud data and resources become more sophisticated than ever, this acquisition strengthens Check Point’s position as a global leader in Cloud Protection. It will enable Check Point’s customers to acquire an even more powerful security visibility and control across multi-cloud environments through its Infinity’s total protection architecture.

“Dome9 and Check Point’s CloudGuard together provide the best cloud security solution in the industry. Dome9’s platform will add rich cloud management and active policy enforcement capabilities to Check Point’s Infinity Architecture, particularly complementing the CloudGuard security product family and make our broad solution even more differentiated in the rapidly moving Cyber Security environment,” said Gil Shwed, Check Point CEO. “As 5th generation cyber attacks increasingly target enterprise cloud environments, so our Gen V cyber security solution must effectively protect this vector. This acquisition will enhance our ability to deliver the benefits of Cloud with the critical security that must extend from the networks, endpoints and data centers to the Cloud and Mobile enterprise-wide.”

Dome9 customers today include many Fortune 1000 Enterprises, global system Integrators and MSPs.
