Incedo, a global digital transformation consulting services and solutions firm, has consolidated its cybersecurity defence with Check Point Software solutions, including Check Point Quantum Security Gateways, Check Point Harmony Endpoint and Check Point R80 Security Management.
By switching from a multi-vendor approach to a consolidated end-to-end strategy with Check Point solutions, Incedo was able to overcome security gaps and safeguard itself and its clients from the increase in cyberattacks in 2020 and throughout 2021, all while decreasing endpoint costs by about 30% and a rise in productivity.
New Jersey-based Incedo works with large volumes of clients’ proprietary data and intellectual property and processes data for its customers, providing it as packaged information services. The company also generates its own product development data and internet and application-based services.
Separate cloud environments are maintained for Incedo and each client, and each environment was being protected by solutions from multiple vendors. As the global threat environment evolved, interoperability issues made it difficult to orchestrate policy and ensure visibility across the different security solutions.
There was a need for Incedo to consolidate its security infrastructure, especially important during the COVID-19 pandemic when remote work became a reality for both Incedo and its customers.
“Check Point Software has helped us become a highly resilient organisation. In fact, when ransomware attacks spiked in 2020 and early 2021, both our and our clients’ environments stayed safe,” said Archie Jackson, senior director and head of IT and Security at Incedo.
As Incedo continues to consolidate its cybersecurity defences with Check Point Software, its next step will be the deployment of the Check Point CloudGuard solution, to protect its internal application development assets in the cloud and to automate DevSecOps, reducing the risks associated with application development.
