Dome9 Security, now a part of Check Point Software Technologies, has been announced as a finalist in the 2018 CRN Tech Innovator Award for Cloud Security. These annual awards honor standout hardware, software, and services that are moving the IT industry forward. In compiling the 2018 Tech Innovator Award list, CRN editors evaluated 300 products across 34 technology categories using several criteria, including technological advancements, uniqueness of features and potential to help solution providers solve end users’ IT challenges.

The CloudGuard Dome9 SaaS platform lets enterprise organizations spend less time and money to secure their public cloud environments. The platform automates security and compliance operations across the cloud infrastructure lifecycle to lower OpEx. The platform leverages the cloud-native security capabilities of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP), through their security APIs – combined with cloud-agnostic policy automation, to allow businesses to manage security uniformly across their multi-cloud environment with a single tool. CloudGuard Dome9 provides a single view, and protects all cloud resources, including built-in services such as AWS RDS, GCP compute engine instances, and Azure LBs. By offering comprehensive always-on security capabilities with end-to-end visibility, and active remediation and enforcement, Dome9 lowers security risk. The CloudGuard Dome9 platform can be deployed in minutes without any software or agent installation and scales on-demand to meet business needs.

“CloudGuard Dome9’s powerful, comprehensive, automated platform differentiates itself from other cloud vendors by empowering partners with the solutions they need to visualize their security posture, identify and mitigate risks and threats, model gold standard policies, and conform to security best practices in the cloud,” said Zohar Alon, Head of Cloud Product Line, Check Point Software Technologies. “We provide a significant opportunity for Check Point’s channel partners in the ecosystem to add value to major enterprises looking to the cloud to transform their businesses.” 

“Each year, the CRN Tech Innovator Awards recognize technology vendor offerings that are reshaping the IT channel landscape by increasing worker productivity, reducing cost, and minimizing complexity for solution providers, IT departments, and end users,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The winners in this year’s awards bring breakthrough ideas to the table for solution providers and their customers, in areas ranging from cloud to security to business intelligence to IoT. We congratulate all the winners and look forward to their future endeavors.”
