Delivering Cybersecurity Tools to Australian SMBs


Check
Point
Software
Technologies
today
announced
a
new
solution
with
Telstra
to
provide
Australian
Small
and
Medium
Businesses
(SMBs)
with
the
latest
solutions
in
cybersecurity.

From
today,
SMBs
supported
by
the
Telstra
Business
Technology
Centres
(TBTC)
will
be
able
to
subscribe
to
Check
Point
Harmony
Email
and
Collaboration,
a
robust
product
designed
to
offer
state-of-the-art
protection
to
help
against
known
current
and
evolving
cyber
threats.

A
recent
Check
Point
Threat
Intelligence
report
shows
in
the
last
six
months
organisations
in
Australia
are
being
attacked
on
average
over
900
times
per
week
and
92%
of
the
malicious
attacks
in
Australia
were
delivered
by
email
in
the
last
thirty
days.
With
cyberattacks
becoming
part
of
the
day-to-day
issues
for
businesses
of
all
sizes,
SMBs
are
considered
more
vulnerable
targets
as
they
often
do
not
have
dedicated
resources
to
deal
with
the
increasingly
complex
threats,
nor
the
budget
to
ensure
greater
security
covering
their
entire
business.

Additionally,
the
Australian
Cyber
Security
Centre
(ACCS)
Annual
Cyber
Threat
Report
2020-21
found
businesses
self-reported
losses
of
$81.45
million
in
the
same
period
due
to
their
business
email
being
compromised.
This
reinforces
emails
as
one
of
the
key
threat
vectors
of
all
cybercrime
reports.

“Telstra
has
been
collaborating
with
Check
Point
Software
to
deliver
our
email
and
collaboration
solutions
at
scale
via
an
accessible
subscription
model
and
supported
channel.
We
are
very
proud
to
continue
to
join
efforts
in
protecting
small
and
medium
businesses
that
play
a
crucial
role
in
the
Australian
economy,”
says
Les
Williamson,
Managing
Director
for
Australia
and
New
Zealand
(ANZ)
at
Check
Point
Software.

“With
the
changes
in
the
ways
of
working
brought
on
by
COVID-19,
cloud-based
workplace
applications
are
now
the
backbone
of
many
small
businesses.
However,
they
are
not
immune
to
cyber
threats.
Every
user
device
connecting
to
these
services
increases
the
potential
for
a
cyberattack”,
said
Matthew
O’Brien,
Group
Owner
Cyber
Security,
Telstra.

He
continued,
“Harmony
Email
and
Collaboration
helps
our
customers
protect
these
services,
and
helps
safeguard
business-critical
information.
It
also
complements
Telstra’s
existing
Harmony
Mobile
and
Endpoint
protection
services
that
are
already
in
market.
To
help
ensure
we
deliver
maximum
value,
we
are
working
with
Check
Point
Software
to
train
and
certify
over
200
professionals
in
TBTCs
across
pre-sales
and
technical
support
teams.
We
are
confident
this
will
be
a
new
milestone
for
SMBs
across
Australia.”

Check
Point’s
Small
and
Medium
Business
Security
Report
from
2020/2021
revealed
phishing,
malware,
credential
theft
and
ransomware
to
be
the
top
four
threats
impacting
these
businesses.
The
company
has
been
recognized
as
a
2021
Gartner
Peer
Insights
Customers
Choice
for
Email
Security.
The
distinction
is
based
on
feedback
and
ratings
from
end-user
IT
professionals
who
have
experience
purchasing,
implementing
and/or
using
the
product.

Check
Point
Harmony
Email
and
Collaboration
helps
to
address
these
issues
with
complete
protection
for
Microsoft
365,
Google
Workspace
and
other

collaboration
and
file-sharing
apps.
