Cyber security provider Check Point Software Technologies has acquired cloud email security provider Avanan, whose technology will be integrated into the Check Point Infinity consolidated architecture to bolster the vendor’s email security offering.

Based in New York and founded in 2015, Avanan provides a multi-layer security offering that claims full-suite protection for cloud solutions such as Office 365, G-Suite, Teams, Slack and other software-as-a-service (SaaS) collaboration suites.  

The company’s platform is designed to deploy in one click via an application programming interface (API) to help prevent business email compromise and block phishing, malware, data leakage, account takeover and shadow IT across the enterprise.

“More and more businesses are moving to cloud-email platforms and with email becoming a major channel to launch devastating cyber-attacks, this acquisition represents a huge potential as organisations are looking for a new approach to email and collaboration suite security,” said Dorit Dor, Check Point’s chief product officer.  

“By integrating Avanan into Check Point Infinity, organisations will be able to modernise legacy solutions with email security as-a-service and protect cloud email and collaboration suites from the most sophisticated attacks.
