Pax8 and Check Point Software Technologies Announce Agreement to Offer Cloud-Based Email Security Solutions

DENVER, CO (April 5, 2022) – Pax8, the best place for IT professionals to buy cloud products, today announced a new global agreement with Check Point’s email security group, formerly Avanan, offering next-gen security solution for cloud-based email and collaboration suites for Managed Service Providers (MSPs).

Check Point’s patented API approach to email security, blocks malicious and phishing emails before they reach the inbox. Embedded within the cloud suite, Check Point secures the entire suite from phishing, malware, data leakage, ransomware, specifically focusing on the most sophisticated attacks that others miss.

“Emails are still the number one attack vector for malware delivery, ahead of RDP scans and software exploits,” said Ryan Walsh, Chief Operating Officer at Pax8. “Check Point has developed a unique way for MSPs to protect their networks from harm caused by phishing. Their technology is a powerful addition to MSPs’ technology stacks because it is cloud-ready and well-integrated into environments that MSPs already use. It also provides an innovative way for their customers to manage email security.”

By preventing malicious and phishing emails from reaching the inbox, Check Point’s technology keeps companies safer, saves security teams valuable time, and prevents damaging monetary and data loss. Check Point prevents attacks in all lines of business communication, such as Microsoft 365, Google Workspace, Slack, Dropbox, and more. With its MSP management portal solution, MSPs have a multi-tenancy view into their email environments, along with a monthly, usage-based billing system, no commitments, and full automation.

“The important thing we do that no other cloud-API based vendor does is prevent malicious and phishing emails before being delivered to the user inbox,” said Gil Friedrich, Vice President of Email Security at Check Point. “Our partnership with Pax8 will enable us to continue to scale our business globally in the IT channel ecosystem. Pax8 partners will now be able to access our advanced AI-driven technology to stop malicious emails before they get into the inbox.”
