Delivering Cybersecurity Tools to Australian SMBs – Australia Cyber Security Magazine

Check Point Software Technologies today announced a new solution with Telstra to provide Australian Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs) with the latest solutions in cybersecurity.
From today, SMBs supported by the Telstra Business Technology Centres (TBTC) will be able to subscribe to Check Point Harmony Email and Collaboration, a robust product designed to offer state-of-the-art protection to help against known current and evolving cyber threats.
A recent Check Point Threat Intelligence report shows in the last six months organisations in Australia are being attacked on average over 900 times per week and 92% of the malicious attacks in Australia were delivered by email in the last thirty days. With cyberattacks becoming part of the day-to-day issues for businesses of all sizes, SMBs are considered more vulnerable targets as they often do not have dedicated resources to deal with the increasingly complex threats, nor the budget to ensure greater security covering their entire business.
Additionally, the Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACCS) Annual Cyber Threat Report 2020-21 found businesses self-reported losses of $81.45 million in the same period due to their business email being compromised. This reinforces emails as one of the key threat vectors of all cybercrime reports.
“Telstra has been collaborating with Check Point Software to deliver our email and collaboration solutions at scale via an accessible subscription model and supported channel. We are very proud to continue to join efforts in protecting small and medium businesses that play a crucial role in the Australian economy,” says Les Williamson, Managing Director for Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) at Check Point Software.
“With the changes in the ways of working brought on by COVID-19, cloud-based workplace applications are now the backbone of many small businesses. However, they are not immune to cyber threats. Every user device connecting to these services increases the potential for a cyberattack”, said Matthew O’Brien, Group Owner Cyber Security, Telstra.
He continued, “Harmony Email and Collaboration helps our customers protect these services, and helps safeguard business-critical information. It also complements Telstra’s existing Harmony Mobile and Endpoint protection services that are already in market. To help ensure we deliver maximum value, we are working with Check Point Software to train and certify over 200 professionals in TBTCs across pre-sales and technical support teams. We are confident this will be a new milestone for SMBs across Australia.”
Check Point’s Small and Medium Business Security Report from 2020/2021 revealed phishing, malware, credential theft and ransomware to be the top four threats impacting these businesses. The company has been recognized as a 2021 Gartner Peer Insights Customers Choice for Email Security. The distinction is based on feedback and ratings from end-user IT professionals who have experience purchasing, implementing and/or using the product.
Check Point Harmony Email and Collaboration helps to address these issues with complete protection for Microsoft 365, Google Workspace and other business collaboration and file-sharing apps.
