Cybersecurity pioneer, Check Point Software (California, US) recently acquired the Israel-based, web application security startup, ForceNock Security Ltd. There is growing usage of platforms built on cloud, network, mobile, endpoint, and IoT and they require compatible and easily accessible solutions that can run on any platform. This acquisition would enable Check Point to provide high-end security to its customers and strengthen its machine learning protection capabilities.
Cybersecurity pioneer, McAfee recently collaborated with Verizon to secure connected Internet of Things (IoT) devices throughout a home network with Verizon’s Home Network Protection (HNP). HNP is a service on Verizon’s Fios Quantum Gateway Router that automatically protects all connected devices in a home network, such as smart thermostats and smart refrigerators. This McAfee-powered solution would provide Verizon Fios customers seamless control, security from malicious websites, advanced parental controls, and user authorization and authentication.
