New Delhi: Check Point and Intel announced an extended collaboration in the endpoint security space on Monday. Through this extended technology collaboration with Intel, Check Point has plans to enhance its endpoint security solutions like Check Point Harmony and others with anti-ransomware capabilities.

Leveraging Intel’s integrated, validated platform vPro platform‘s Threat Detection Technology (TDT), Check Point has integrated TDT within the Check Point Harmony endpoint solution. And this has enabled Check Point Harmony to bolster anti-ransomware capabilities for its customers.

“Through our collaboration with Intel, customers will benefit from processor level security that starts at the silicon level and provides anti-ransomware capabilities allowing for earlier prevention and expansive attack surface coverage,” said Ofir Israel, VP of Threat Prevention, Check Point Software Technologies.

“Together with Intel we have the technology and expertise to prevent operational and financial damage caused by the influx of ransomware attacks,” added Israel.

Check Point Harmony Endpoint helps provide enterprises with processor-level anti-ransomware security at both the hardware and software levels, at no extra cost, the company said. The solution also prevents endpoint threats with capabilities that identify, block, and remediate the full attack chain.

Integration of Intel’s TDT technology allows CheckPoint Harmony Endpoint to employ AI and ML to analyse CPU telemetry and recognise ransomware encryption commands early in the attack flow, raising the barrier against advanced threats. Together, they will strengthen prevention and security measures for customers globally.

“It’s essential for organisations of all sizes to invest in technology to prevent cyberattacks,” Carla Rodríguez, VP and GM, Ecosystem Partner Enabling – Intel.

“The Intel vPro platform contains hardware-based security features, including Threat Detection Technology specifically designed to detect ransomware and other advanced threats. When paired with Check Point’s security solutions, customers can be confident knowing their endpoints are better protected at both the hardware and software layers.”

Additional details about the enhanced anti-ransomware capabilities this partnership brings will be announced in the coming weeks, the company said.
