In the industry developments and happenings in the markets include: 

Check Point Software Technologies, Ltd. /zigman2/quotes/200866016/composite CHKP -0.35% , a leading provider of cyber security solutions globally and Cybersecurity Insiders, the comprehensive source for everything related to cybersecurity, have recently released  the results of their global 2020 Cloud Security Report, highlighting the challenges faced by enterprise security teams in protecting data and workloads in their public cloud deployments.

The report shows that public cloud security continues to be a major challenge: 75% of respondents stated they were 'very concerned' or 'extremely concerned' about it. The challenge is made more complex as 68% said their organizations used two or more different public cloud providers, which means that security teams often have to use multiple native security tools and management consoles to try and enforce security and compliance across the different environments.

"The Report shows that organizations' cloud migrations and deployments are racing ahead of their security teams' abilities to defend them against attacks and breaches.  Their existing security solutions only provide limited protections against cloud threats, and teams often lack the expertise needed to improve security and compliance processes," said TJ Gonen, Head of Cloud Product Line, Check Point Software.  "To close these security gaps, enterprises need to get holistic visibility across all of their public cloud environments, and deploy unified, automated cloud-native protections, compliance enforcement and event analysis. This way, they can keep pace with the needs of the business while ensuring continuous security and compliance."

FireEye, Inc. /zigman2/quotes/204730283/composite FEYE +0.48% , the intelligence-led security company, recently announced financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.  "The steps we have taken to accelerate our transformation to a security-as-a-service company resulted in record second quarter revenue and our highest ever non-GAAP profitability," said Kevin Mandia, FireEye chief executive officer. "Growing adoption of our validation platform, cloud-based security products and intelligence solutions, combined with improved net retention in our appliance-based security controls business, drove annualized recurring revenue to record levels."

"Cyber security remains a top spending priority for organizations worldwide, and the uncertainty of the current environment is creating opportunities for solutions that allow customers to purchase exactly what they need, when they need it," added Mandia. "We know more about cyber threats and threat actors than any other company in our industry, and we continue to invest in solutions that make our knowledge and expertise available on demand and immediately actionable for our customers."

Fortinet   /zigman2/quotes/205733290/composite FTNT 0.00% recently said : ""Fortinet continues to push the boundaries of hardware-accelerated performance to enable the convergence of security and networking – what we call Security-driven Networking. The FortiGate 4400F Network Firewall delivers unprecedented scale and performance that is up to 13 times better than comparable products. As the only network firewall capable of securing hyperscale data centers and 5G networks, FortiGate 4400F leads the industry in what is possible for data center security."

Today's most digitally innovative organizations face escalating and often unpredictable capacity needs that are quickly outpacing their security solution's performance capabilities. As a result, security has become the choke point for traffic entering and exiting most hyperscale data centers, adversely affecting user experience, and bringing productivity to a crawl, causing many network admins to feel pressured by business demands to forego security safeguards. Allowing all traffic to flow freely into and out of an organization's network without security opens organizations up to the risk of cyberattacks, which can severely damage their brand reputation and cause potential loss in revenue due to extended downtime. While many organizations have successfully deployed hyperscale network architectures, achieving hyperscale security has been a significant challenge. To-date, some vendors claim to implement hyperscale security through multiple firewalls orchestrated together to achieve a hyperscale architecture, which has proven to be cumbersome and expensive."

Palo Alto Networks /zigman2/quotes/207599953/composite PANW -0.47% , the global cybersecurity leader, recently announced it has been named a Leader of The Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Firewalls, Q3 2020 and received the highest score in the strategy category.  Palo Alto Networks was among the 11 vendors that Forrester evaluated for its Forrester Wave™: Enterprise Firewalls, Q3 2020 report.

Palo Alto Networks received the highest possible score in 17 evaluated criteria, including usability, threat intelligence, automated malware analysis, ICS/OT/IoT, IDS/IPS, and a dozen more.  "Palo Alto Networks created the first Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) more than a decade ago and have continued to keep our customers ahead of fast-evolving threats in the years since. More recently, we disrupted the market again with our announcement of the world's first Machine Learning-Powered NGFW. With increasing attack surfaces that include hybrid clouds, remote workers, IoT devices and more, it's all the more important that we provide customers with complete visibility while protecting them from the threats of today and tomorrow," said Anand Oswal, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Firewall as a Platform, Palo Alto Networks. "Today we're particularly honored to be recognized by Forrester, which from our perspective is not only for our market and technology leadership, but also for having the strategic vision to protect our customers in the future."
