Check Point is a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions which protects more than 100,000 businesses worldwide. This CloudGuard specialisation has enabled Logicalis Ireland to significantly expand its cloud security customer base. In particular, greater uptake is expected in the retail, manufacturing, online financial services and legal sectors.

The achievement allows Logicalis Ireland to extend its cybersecurity offering and specialise in reselling Check Point cloud security solutions in Ireland. These products include CloudGuard, a suite of solutions used to protect cloud infrastructure, applications and data, and Dome9, a service which enables greater visibility and auditing of cloud infrastructure for businesses.

As a significant element of Logicalis Ireland’s Secure Cloud Adoption framework, these solutions will be implemented by the organisation to protect customers’ IAAS, SAAS, PAAS and data against the latest generation of cyber-attacks, ransomware and malware – whether they are using private, public or multi-cloud infrastructure.

Furthermore, these Check Point technologies deliver a higher degree of agility, visibility and compliance for companies in terms of their cloud infrastructure, offering an automatic compliance engine and identity and access management, whilst facilitating controlled access to systems.

Ross O’Donovan, Information Security Practice Lead, Logicalis Ireland, said: “This new cybersecurity specialisation provides us with the opportunity to continue to deliver real value in the Irish market and differentiates us from our competitors. As well as generating significant revenue, the achievement has enabled us to rapidly grow our customer base in this area.

“As the first partner in Ireland to be awarded this specialisation and with our vast experience of these technologies, we see this as a real opportunity not only to support our current customers but also attract new ones. Cloud security is a major area at the moment and our partnership with Check Point allows us to address the challenges it brings and also help companies digitally transform.”

Hugh McGauran, Country Manager for Ireland, Check Point, said: “Working with the right people is crucial in any industry and our partners are as much part of the team as our employees. Together, we are providing tailored cybersecurity solutions to help safeguard company systems, protect valuable data and support business growth. 

“We are delighted to recognise Logicalis Ireland with the CloudGuard specialisation and we look forward to seeing what this next stage of our partnership brings. The achievement showcases the organisation’s expertise in the market and ability to consistently deliver successful outcomes for its customer base using our technologies.”
