Siemplify partners with Check Point Software for better incident response times
The partnership will enhance and accelerate the orchestration, automation, and response in security operation centers
With the partnership, the Siemplify platform will integrate with Check Point solutions, giving security operation centers (SOC) a single and unified workbench for identifying and blocking cyber threats.
“We are thrilled to showcase the Siemplify Security Operations Platform to Check Point’s prospects and customers who are undoubtedly facing the very challenges that makes SOAR so instrumental: alert overload, the overreliance on manual tasks and the need to integrate disparate security tools,” Amos Stern, CEO and co-founder of Siemplify, said in a statement. “Already high, the demand for SOAR is accelerating during the Covid-19 pandemic, driven by the amplified need for remote security operations teams to collaborate effectively, drive process consistency and quickly build automated playbooks to address new threat vectors.”
According to the companies, the majority of SOC teams struggle to identify malicious activity on their network systems, ultimately making them unable to block them in time. A 2019 SOC Survey conducted by Dimensional Research claims that 68% of respondents said that half of the events they analyze are false positives, creating an overload of logs and alerts for security measures.
As such, the integration of Siemplify’s platform with Check Point’s Infinity SOC will help automate alert handling, streamline firewall policy management, and speed up advanced malware investigations.
“Security orchestration and automation complements our Infinity consolidated security architecture which delivers threat prevention across networks, cloud, endpoints, mobile and IoT devices, seals security gaps, prevents attacks, reduces risk, and minimizes total cost of ownership. Adding Siemplify’s SOAR solution alleviates some of the most pressing SOC challenges that our customers are experiencing,” Eran Orzel, Check Point Head of Strategic Sales and Partnerships, added. “We are excited to partner with Siemplify and offer SOAR capabilities to our global customer base.”
The integration will be across cloud, network, endpoint, and mobile security, as well as more than 200 3rd party tools.
Siemplify was founded in 2015 by Alon Cohen, Amos Stern, Garry Fatakhov, and has raised $58 million to date. The SOAR provider helps security teams manage operations from end to end and responds to cyber threats in a smarter way after every interaction. Its headquarters are in Tel Aviv, Israel, and New York City. Venture capital firm 83North was one of Siemplify's firs backers.
