Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd., the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced that Check Point Abra was distinguished with "The best international innovation" award at the 2010 Information Security Day (ITBN) conference in Hungary. Ernő Rubik, the world famous Hungarian innovator bestowed the award to the Check Point representatives.
A real revolution for mobile workers, Check Point Abra instantly turns any PC into a secure corporate desktop by allowing users to safely access corporate emails, files and applications anytime, anywhere, whether offline or online, through integrated virtual private network (VPN) connectivity. Hardware and software encryption protect the data stored and transiting on the device, while its virtualization technology isolates the Abra work session, ensuring sensitive data remains on the device and leaves no trace on the host PC. In addition, Abra's Program Control regulates the types of applications installed and accessed by users to protect the corporate network from malware associated with unauthorized applications.
"Businesses have seen a significant growth of their mobile workforce over the past few years, and are under increased pressure to reduce costs, operate efficiently and secure their data on-the-go," said Benjámin Vándor, Check Point channel manager in Hungary. "Abra is the new, simple and affordable solution to their increased mobility needs. By literally putting the office in your pocket, Abra really changes the way people work remotely. It combines virtualization, VPN and strong data security into a single ultra-portable device, and does it in an easy to use and cost effective manner."
Since its introduction to the market, just a few months ago, Abra has received a tremendous amount of recognition from both customers and industry experts. "In turn, we are proud to see the Hungarian IT industry embrace Check Point Abra and acknowledge the exceptional potential of this product. Abra is a very unique tool that truly redefines three different markets: secure virtualization, secure connectivity and plug-and-play encryption markets - all in one single, ultra-portable and simple device," continued Vándor.
