Check Point to host two solutions locally to cater to data sovereignty needs

CheckPoint, an Israel’s Tel Aviv-based cybersecurity solutions provider, has invested in local Indian infrastructure for its two solutions -- Harmony Endpoint and Harmony Mobile suite.

The company said that the move will help to keep their data safe locally as well as meet the data sovereignty requirements of the country, especially for the government, banking and financial services and the pharmaceutical sectors. 

The harmony endpoint security solution helps to tackle imminent threats to the endpoint such as ransomware, phishing or malware, while Harmony Mobile, as the name suggests, is a security solution for smartphones. 

The pandemic has caused employees to work from home, which has increased the vulnerability of organisations to cyber threats, as cybercriminals come up with sophisticated methods of attacks. 

At the same time, organisations in key sectors are now needed to meet data sovereignty requirements. One such requirement is part of Cert-in, where the banking and financial services companies are required to keep critical data within the legal boundaries of the country, while these systems are also needed for continuous monitoring for direct control and supervision protocols. 

“By investing in our infrastructure and hosting Harmony Endpoint and Harmony Mobile locally, organisations in India can keep their endpoints and mobiles secure while being compliant with IT & security best practices,” said Sundar Balasubramanian, Managing Director, Check Point Software Technologies.
