Check Point has announced the acquisition of governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) solutions provider Dynasec.

According to Check Point, the acquisition of Israeli-based Dynasec will help organisations accelerate the path to 3D security (combining policies, people and enforcement) by enabling customers to easily translate compliance requirements into IT security policies that map to their overall business objectives. The transaction is expected to close within the next month; terms of the acquisition will not be disclosed.

Amnon Bar-Lev, president of Check Point, said: “This acquisition makes it very simple for customers to establish corporate policies that adhere to a wide range of global compliance regulations and reinforces the importance of turning security into a business process.

“With this new offering, we are extending our 3D Security strategy and bringing customers the tools that enable them to easily and quickly implement corporate and security policies with full control and enforcement.”

The acquisition will see Check Point add to its portfolio Dynasec's easy2comply software, which has built-in best practices that are customisable for multiple compliance standards. Check Point said the solution will offer a way for businesses to automate the manual task of handling a growing number of regulations and compliance standards and implement the technology in less than two weeks.
