Why Cyber Security is crucial to digital transformation and the latest Check Point technologies designed to help you protect your perimeter

The way we do business has fundamentally changed in 2020. Transactions, communications and collaboration is increasingly taking place online. The rapid transition to home working, resulted in a mass migration to cloud-based applications to enable business continuity and remote connectivity.

As both business and IT infrastructure changes, the risks you are exposed to also changes. Accelerated digital transformation has resulted in new and amplified threats, and the security protections you put in place previously will likely not hold up against the pace of innovation from attackers.

James Holton, Cyber Security Practice Lead at Trustmarque, explains why security is central to digital transformation and safeguarding your investments. He comments: “The money you invest in your digital vision needs to be secured. Failing to protect yourself from security threats, is the fastest way to undo the progress in your digital strategy. It’s about damage control.

“You need to look at how digital transformation is changing your business, your operating model, the way you interact and transact. A lot of breaches come from a fundamental misunderstanding of what the risks look for your current business model and then failing to protect yourself adequately.”

While attackers are quick to tap into the opportunity, so are the vendors. Cyber Security specialists are constantly releasing new solutions to meet the ever-evolving digital threat as our workloads shift from edge to core to cloud.

In this article we put a spotlight on the latest innovations from one of our leading partners, Check Point for who Trustmarque recently became an accredited Check Point Collaborative Support Partner.

CloudGuard – complete protection for your SaaS environments

In the rapid transition to remote working, many organisations were forced to adopt SaaS applications without due diligence. For example, Microsoft 365 has become the platform of choice for remote-based connectivity and productivity. However, it is possible to have malware within Microsoft 365, a risk intensified by the ability for third parties to plug into your tenants. It’s therefore crucial malware protection exists in M365 and other SaaS applications.  CloudGuard is a new cloud-based security app that protects your cloud environment.

CloudGuard gives you:

  • Comprehensive portfolio that protects all cloud services against even the most sophisticated Gen V threats
