-- Check Point Software Technology- the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, provides innovative security solutions that meet real-time customer needs and help reduce security complexity. The IPS Software Blade stands as a testimony to its speed of resolution and protection from the unforeseen attack of ‘FLAME’. It provides immediate protection by detecting the presence of Flame malware and prevents its propagation.
The Flame malware, also known as SkyWiper and Flamer, is a modular suite of malicious software that is known to have been used for cyber-espionage in several Middle Eastern countries, whose impact is 20 times greater than the Stuxnet worm, discovered in 2010. Also all versions of Windows are susceptible to infection by Flame which makes the threat highly severe.
The breakthrough performance of Check Point Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) Software Blade provides a more effective and low-cost settlement than most stand-alone IPS solutions. Its proactive intrusion prevention capability is a perfect solution for infections caused by Flame.
