Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), a leading provider of cyber security solutions globally, announced that it has been awarded State of CA Software License Program (SLP) Agreements through its six channel partners to help alleviate the complexities of purchasing security products. The Agreements provide state and local agencies a streamlined method to procure security software and solutions to assist with the industry's digital transformation.
The state of California created the Software License Program (SLP) to provide any city, county, state of California agencies and departments, special districts, and educational agencies the ability to purchase software, such as Check Point, at extensive discounts. The SLP program was established in January 1994 and is administered by the Department of General Services, Procurement Division.
Our recent Mid-Year Security Report highlights that ransomware now impacts 1 out of 40 organizations a week, marking a 59% increase year over year. As cyber-attacks become more frequent and complex, state agencies must make it a priority to implement a comprehensive cybersecurity policy. Check Point has one of the largest security technology portfolio in the industry allowing for increased hardening of security posture to secure California agencies and prevent malicious attacks.
"Cyberattacks are becoming firmly entrenched as state-level weapons resulting in state and local agencies becoming key targets for cyber criminals," said Frank Rauch, Head of Worldwide Channel Sales. "We are honored to be granted SLP Agreements with our partners so that together we can defend California agencies and provide highly rated cybersecurity solutions."
All partners holding a Check Point SLP Agreement are top level resellers with broad knowledge and capabilities to serve customer needs around cybersecurity, cloud, and endpoint protection. Through the six channel partners, Check Point will work strategically with any State department or agency regardless of budget constraints. Key partners include:
Aurora Systems Consulting
Six Degrees Inc.
MCI Communications Service LLC dba Verizon Business Services
