New Delhi: Check Point’s Quantum Spark series security gateways are available to SMBs. The company has announced the availability of complete Quantum Spark series security gateways for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).

The range of six gateways sets new standards of protection against the most advanced cyberattacks for SMBs, giving unrivalled ease of deployment and management, and delivering optimum security without needing specialist skills.

As per the 2020 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report 28% of all breach victims were SMBs, with 54% of attempted attacks on SMBs being successful, compared to a 7% success rate at larger companies.

62% of SMBs say they lack the skills to deal with cyber-security issues. With the FBI stating that cybercrime reports have quadrupled during the COVID-19 pandemic, SMBs urgently need integrated and automated security to prevent cyber-threats from damaging their business.

“Security threats are increasing in frequency and sophistication, but SMBs lack the expertise, manpower and IT budget to adequately address them.”

“They need security solutions that evolve with the threat landscape, are easy to use, and combine communications and security,” said Chris Rodriguez, IDC’s Network Security Research Manager,

“Check Point’s Quantum Spark next-generation firewalls family are specifically designed to protect SMBs against security threats,” added Rodriguez.

They are easy to manage from the cloud or on the go with a mobile app and provide optimized internet connectivity including Wi-Fi, fibre, GbE, VDSL and 4G LTE wireless in an “all in one” solution.

Quantum Spark is also optimized for managed service providers as a monthly subscription. So SMBs can be secure regardless of their budget.

Check Point’s Quantum Spark Gateways 1500 four-model series is now expanded with two new models, 1600 and 1800. The full line of gateways allows supporting businesses ranging from one employee all the way to 500.

Quantum Spark Gateway users benefit from – highest levels of security with automated threat prevention, automatic set-up in 60 seconds, flexible connectivity, easy and intuitive management, and complete protection for remote employees and cloud applications.

“Small businesses are experiencing the same types of advanced, stealthy cyber threats as large enterprises. But SMBs often don’t have the resources or security knowledge to fully protect themselves against today’s advanced cyber threats,” said Itai Greenberg, VP – Product Management, Check Point Software Technologies.

“The new Quantum Spark gateways give SMBs the most advanced protection for their networks and employees’ devices. So they benefit from enterprise-grade automated security, together with easy intuitive management,” added Greenberg.

The new Quantum Spark’s 910 Security Gateway model is now discontinued and will not be available after July 2021. Check Point’s Quantum Spark Gateways 1500 four-model series and the two new models, 1600 and 1800 are available to order now.
