Check Point has announced the launch of its compliance software blade that tracks the modifications that IT teams make to networks and policies and alerts to any potential compliance issues arising from those changes.

Generating automated reports for compliance with top regulations, including ISO 27001, PCI DSS and HIPAA, it said that this helps resolve non-compliance issues with pre-defined profiles for over 250 security best practices.

According to the company, it provides a 360° view of compliance, making it easy for businesses to control, document and report on the organisation's security compliance posture. Also, as it is integrated into the software blade architecture, every policy adjustment is checked for compliance including changes made to all Check Point network security software blades, including firewall, intrusion prevention, anti-bot, data loss prevention and application control.

Mati Ram, head of governance, risk and compliance at Check Point, said: “The compliance software blade makes it very simple for customers to establish security policies that adhere to a wide range of global regulations, and reinforces the importance of making security part of the business process."
