Check Point Software Technologies has announced the immediate availability of Quantum SASE, integrating technologies from the newly acquired Perimeter 81.

This integrated offering addresses organisations’ needs for a unified user experience, simplified Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) management, and a fast, secure browsing experience. It enhances the company’s Infinity architecture with a unified SASE solution offering (1) 2x faster internet security, (2) full mesh Zero Trust Access, and (3) Secured SD-WAN with industry-leading threat prevention.

The rise of hybrid work sees enterprises embracing multiple cloud services, with 90% now operating in such settings. Organisations are moving from on-premises internet security to internet security delivered in the cloud. However, in both cases all traffic is redirected into one location for inspection, frustrating users with latency.

Quantum SASE in hybrid approach

The Quantum SASE solution solves the internet security latency problem with a hybrid approach that combines on-device protection of direct internet access, with the ability to use cloud inspection when needed. According to Check Point Software Technologies, the result is 2x faster internet security when compared with other solutions on the market. 

“As the lines between digital and physical realms become increasingly blurred, businesses need a comprehensive, consolidated, and collaborative security strategy,” said Amit Bareket, VP, Security Service Edge at Check Point Software Technologies. “With Quantum SASE, Check Point stands as the pioneer security partner, offering a Hybrid SASE solution comprised of three pivotal components: on-device network protection, cloud network protection, and a unified security gateway with built-in SD-WAN and IoT security. As organizations navigate the intricacies of hybrid work and cloud integration, Quantum SASE is the very future of secured networking.”

Quantum SASE’s key features include:

  • Enhanced Internet Access: 2X faster internet security performance vs competitors, and secure access for both remote users and branch offices, bolstered by cloud and on-device network protections. This ensures a native, localized browsing experience with tighter security and privacy.
