Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced it has been named a Channel Champion in the Network Security Software category based on the results from the 2011 CRN Channel Champions survey, the largest technology integrator market study in the industry measuring overall perceptions of vendor products and services. This award recognizes Check Point’s leading Software Blade Architecture™, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Software Blade, Intrusion Prevention (IPS) Software Blade and full range of UTM-1 appliances, validating the company’s broad portfolio of leading network security solutions.
In addition, the magazine has also selected Check Point’s Vice President of Global Field Operations, Amnon Bar-Lev, as a 2011 Channel Chief by Everything Channel’s CRN editorial staff for the fourth consecutive year. Since joining the company in 2005, Bar-Lev has played a critical role in the strategic development and success of Check Point’s PureAdvantage partner program. The Check Point PureAdvantage partner program was designed to help distributors and partners grow their businesses – many of whom have doubled their revenue with Check Point in the last four years by offering the industry’s most advanced security solutions. Over the past year, Check Point has continued to expand its partner community – adding over 700 new partners and achieving $1 billion in record revenue during the fiscal year of 2010 with its full suite of security solutions from the gateway to the endpoint.
“It is an outstanding honor to receive these awards. They are a true testament to Check Point’s strategic channel developments and commitment to executing on the vision for 3D Security, a new approach that goes beyond technology to transform security into a business process,” said Amnon Bar-Lev, vice president of global field operations at Check Point Software Technologies. “As a 100-percent channel-driven company, winning these awards is based on a true collaboration with our partners.”
