Check Point is set to purchase Perimeter 81 for $490 million without cash or debt.
Check Point’s acquisition will accelerate secure access adoption across users, sites, the cloud, data centers, and the internet, aiming to provide the most secure and fastest SSE solution.
Check Point plans to integrate Perimeter 81 capabilities into Check Point Infinity’s architecture. With industry-leading threat prevention, this will provide a unified security solution for the network, cloud, and remote users.
Perimeter 81 is well-positioned to support Check Point’s vision of the industry’s fastest, most secure SASE solution.
Perimeter 81 presents exceptional capabilities, such as zero-trust access and complete mesh connectivity, linking users, branches, and applications.
The aforementioned solution enables individuals who work remotely to enjoy swift and secure internet access from any location while mitigating any potential breaches of cloud privacy.
Check Point is set to acquire Perimeter 81, with the closing expected to happen in Q3 2023, provided all standard closing conditions are met.
“With the advent of hybrid work and the rise of cloud transformation, the demand for security services that expand beyond the network perimeter is increasing,” says Gil Shwed, CEO at Check Point Software Technologies.
“This strategic move marks an exciting period for our company, partners, and customers. By joining Check Point, a global leader in cyber security for over 30 years, we aim to deliver the premier SASE platform in the market,” says Amit Bareket, CEO at Perimeter 81.
