Check Point Harmony Email & Collaboration

Complete security for email and collaboration suites

With Harmony Email & Collaboration (HEC), organizations can implement a consistent and comprehensive way to secure digital correspondence and collaborative work. The solution prevents malicious messages from reaching users and works either installed in the recipient's locations or as a cloud service. Check Point Harmony Email & Collaboration is the ideal solution for securing Microsoft365 cloud suite apps, Google Workspace, Teams, and Slack.

Solution overview

Because 90% of cyberattacks start at the email level, it’s critical that malicious emails don’t reach employees. Check Point Harmony Email & Collaboration works as a last line of defense before the Inbox, protecting your organization against major attack vectors. The solution is differentiated by the following characteristics:

  • Uses Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms to prevent phishing attacks and Business Email Compromise
  • Provides advanced protection against all malicious files and links and zero-day threats
  • Provides protection against lateral movement and insider threats by inspecting internal communication in real-time
  • Works with leading email and collaboration suites like Microsoft365, Google Workspace, Teams, or Slack
  • It prevents abusive email account takeovers and blocks suspicious logins using an event analysis algorithm that identifies signs of malicious behavior.

Main functionalities

Check Point Harmony Email & Collaboration works based on the following mechanisms:

Check Point SandBlast

A sandbox technology that blocks malicious files before they reach email without affecting user productivity. The Proactive Threat Extraction feature cleans files and removes potential threats, providing a secure version of files in less than two seconds.

Advanced Data Leak Prevention (DLP)

When an employee shares data via email or other applications in the collaboration suite, Harmony reviews the subject, content, and attachments, and in the case of sharing sensitive data such as credit card details, personal information, or business information, communication is blocked to prevent data leaks.

Patented AI/ML technology

HEC intercepts attackers with the help of machine learning algorithms, which analyze user behavior, identified by analyzing data taken from devices, operating systems and cloud services.

Check Point Infinity and ThreatCloud

HEC is part of Check Point Infinity, a hardened security architecture powered by the most powerful threat intelligence database, ThreatCloud. Thus, it offers consistent security on all levels: network, equipment, cloud services, mobile devices and IoT.

API-based integration

The solution offers API-level protection and enables real-time scanning of internal and external communications to prevent lateral movement within the organization and data leaks.

File-Sharing Security

It secures the main file-sharing services – Google Drive, ShareFile, OneDrive, Sharepoint, Box, Dropbox – against malware and ransomware and prevents accidental data loss and theft.

What is the role of Check Point HEC?

Check Point Harmony Email & Collaboration inspects the metadata, attachments, links, and language of the communication, as well as all historical communications, to determine previous trusting relationships between sender and recipient.

Thus, the solution maximizes the probability of identifying malicious files, fraudulent messages, as well as imitating a user.

Main benefits of the solution

Check Point Harmony Email & Collaboration is an easy-to-deploy and easy-to-use solution that offers one-click protection. The solution brings the following benefits:

Optimized security

It reduces phishing at the Inbox level by 99.2%, blocks ransomware and malware attacks, provides both prevention and post-attack protection. Detects threats that pass through Microsoft Exchange Online Protection, Advanced Threat Protection solutions, and Secure Email Gateways such as Proofpoint and Mimecast.

Preventing the abusive takeover of email accounts

With HEC you have the possibility to add additional elements to the authentication process, which automatically block suspicious accesses, such as from inappropriate locations, or from IPs with low reputation.

Installation and configuration in just a few minutes

HEC deployment is very fast and, upon installation, the solution performs a retroactive scan to detect existing threats in the organization, ensuring maximum protection from the start.

It works with both on-premises and cloud suites

The Check Point Harmony Email & Collaboration solution can be used with the main email solutions and collaboration platforms on the market.

Previne pierderea sau compromiterea datelor

HEC helps ensure that sensitive information does not end up in the wrong hands. It allows you to configure custom policies to keep data safe and maintain compliance.

Cost reduction

The solution includes in a single license all the security functionalities, both for email and collaboration applications. Thus, it reduces acquisition and administration expenses, offering an advantageous TCO (Total Cost of Ownership).

Simplified monitoring and management

Monitor and manage all security features with a single, highly intuitive dashboard. Receive insights and reports that can be quickly implemented.
