Check Point Research provides leading cyber threat intelligence to Check Point Software customers and the greater intelligence community. The research team collects and analyzes global cyber attack data stored on ThreatCloud to keep hackers at bay, while ensuring all Check Point products are updated with the latest protections. From the moment a breach is initiated, ThreatCloud begins sharing data across the entire network, providing researchers with the intelligence they need to deeply analyze and report on attacks. Check Point Research publications and intelligence sharing fuel the discovery of new cyber threats and the development of the international threat intelligence community to keep you secure.
Leading the Threat Intelligence Community
The research team consists of over 100 analysts and researchers currently cooperating with other security vendors, law enforcement, and different CERTs. Their data sources also include open sources, the ThreatCloud network, and dark web intelligence. Internally, the team has developed their own machine learning modules, anomaly detection, reverse engineering, and campaign hunting techniques that all assist in staying ahead of hackers and the latest cyber threats.
