Palo Alto, Calif., February 23, 2017 – ERPScan, a world–renowned ERP cybersecurity vendor, today announced that ERPScan and Check Point Software Technologies ltd (NASDAQ:CHKP) have entered into a technology partnership. The partnership combines ERPScan’s expertise in ERP security and Check Point’s Advanced Threat Prevention capabilities.
In the era of targeted cyberattacks conducted by skilled hackers, security vendors should collaborate to help their customers. We believe this integration perfectly fits for customers that need a comprehensive solution to prevent the real attacks against their ERP systems,
said Alexander Polyakov, CTO at ERPScan.
The combined solution of Check Point’s next-generation threat prevention platform with ERPScan’s Security monitoring suite can:
- Prevent known attacks with a comprehensive pack of ERP vulnerability signatures
- Prevent zero-day attacks with new vulnerabilities uploaded by the ERPScan Threat Intelligence team before the official patches are released
- Generate virtual patches for vulnerabilities in ERP customizations such as code vulnerabilities in ABAP or PeopleCode programs by using unique algorithms developed by ERPScan
ERP landscapes remain vulnerable due to the growing sophistication of hackers targeting this business-critical software:
- A complex and custom ERP environment may contain elusive vulnerabilities and backdoors
- Some companies do not patch ERP software
- Patches are not easy to deploy because fixing an issue can affect multiple systems resulting in downtime of the service
- Zero-day vulnerabilities continue to pose new threats
By scanning an ERP environment, ERPScan Security Monitoring Suite generates a list of attack signatures for all discovered vulnerabilities. These signatures are then exported to Check Point’s next-generation threat prevention platform to block these attacks and protect the customer.
Utilizing ERPScan’s attack signatures, Check Point’s next-generation threat prevention platform blocks zero-day attacks to safeguard critical applications and assets. We are pleased to partner with ERPScan to share intelligence and bolster our advanced threat prevention capabilities to secure cloud applications and ERP environments.
said Jason Min, head of business and corporate development, Check Point.
The combination of these two cutting-edge technologies will provide ERP customers with a comprehensive approach to enabling security for business-critical applications.
