Check Point Assesses Security System Market

In a time of crisis, investment in network security is essential, say Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. experts. The company, a global leader in network security, warns that the economic crisis may stimulate attacks on corporate IT resources. The present situation has also given rise to more staff rotation and increased temptation for some to engage in criminal acts.Check Point has been developing complete and comprehensive solutions for internet communication and critical data security for 15 years. Last year, despite the looming crisis, was a good one for Check Point, which allowed for planning more operations for 2009.

"For several months we have observed a savings trend on the IT market," says Michał Jarski, director of Check Point Software Technologies Polska. "In search of lower costs, company heads may be inclined to choose outsourced solutions. A combination of the rising salaries of security experts and the high costs of security solutions makes outsourcing IT security services a very attractive option." According to Check Point, a focus on integration and increasing the efficiency of available technologies is needed this year. Cost reduction is a great motivator for seeking integrated solutions, which are easier and cheaper to maintain.The company is adjusting to the ongoing process of intertwining of corporate and consumer solutions. Many of the systems used in home computers will be implemented in large organizations. Corporate system users naturally transfer their "home" computer habits to company networks, which requires appropriate security solutions. That applies both to communication technologies (peer2peer networks, wiki, internet instant messaging) and systems that protect them and take into account the behavior and requirements of these technologies.

"The market we're operating on has good and solid prospects," says Jarski. "Hence, Check Point expects significant growth in the level of IT security in Eastern Europe, particularly in Poland."
