Check Point Software Technologies provides security software and appliances for corporate networks and service providers. Check Point's products verify remote users, control access, and block viruses. The company also offers products that enable companies to set up virtual private networks (VPNs) for secure internal and remote communications, as well as products for bandwidth management, network performance, and availability applications. Its ZoneAlarm products protect consumers from hackers, identity theft, and spyware. Check Point also offers services such as consulting, integration, maintenance, and training. Founded in 1993, the company went public in 1996, and in 2009 acquired the security appliance business from long-time partner Nokia.

Investment rationale

Internet traffic volumes are doubling every three years and corporate networks are growing about 25% every year. At the same time, security attacks are becoming more sophisticated. Cyber crime can also invade the privacy of consumers and therefore is considered a breach of the human right to privacy.

Check Point introduced the first commercially available firewall and has kept up its innovative edge with a steady stream of industry-first cyber security solutions.
