How to Prevent 5th Generation Cyber Attacks with Check Point Infinity

The reason cyber security effectiveness seems elusive is because information technology has fragmented into on-premises networks, public and private clouds, SaaS/IaaS, and mobile environments. Protecting this broad threat surface with point solutions leaves cyber security gaps. In addition, 5th generation multi-vector cyber attacks spread faster and inflict more damage. The only way to prevent sophisticated attacks is with consolidated Gen V cyber-security architecture that future-proofs your IT infrastructure across all networks, cloud and mobile.

Check Point Infinity

In this article, Prevent Cyber Attacks Before they Happen with Check Point Infinity you learn how Gen V security counteracts IT fragmentation by delivering superior advanced threat prevention and unified management simultaneously across seven key areas:

How to Protect Data Center from Cyberattacks – Hidden Costs of Detection-Based Approach for Cloud, Virtualized and Edge Infrastructure

Data centers are truly the life blood of many organizations – whether on-premises or in the cloud –providing access to information and applications that characterise that enterprise. As data centers have become more central and valuable, so too has the job of securing them from cyberattacks. To date, many data centers have followed the familiar path of network security, honing to the perimeter. Unfortunately, this approach leaves serious security gaps, as evident by the proliferation of successful attacks against data center environments.

How to Protect Data Center from Cyberattacks - Hidden Costs of Detection-Based Approach for Cloud, Virtualized and Edge Infrastructure

In today’s heightened cyber threat landscape, the traditional data center security model of perimeter controls and detection-based models does not prevent sophisticated attacks on virtualized IT infrastructure or the OT firmware and software that supports it. That’s because threat prevention technologies are often focused on detecting an initial compromise rather than stopping an attack. They are also heavily reliant on resource-intensive monitoring, which does little to truly reduce risk.

CrowdStrike 2019 Global Threat Report: Predictions and Recommendations

In 2019, targeted intrusion adversaries will continue to conduct campaigns as part of their nation-state’s national strategies. China, Russia, Iran, and the DPRK are seeking geopolitical prominence, both in their respective regions and internationally, and they will use their cyber capabilities to attain and maintain situational awareness of their neighbors and rivals. Entities in the government, defense, think tank and NGO sectors will continue to be the targets of these operations. These intrusions will likely be supported by the targeting of upstream providers in the telecommunications and technology (particularly managed service providers) sectors, and may include supply chain compromises, as was observed in 2017.
