Check Point bolstered by rising product sales

Simon Quicke

Security vendor Check Point has been able to report strong product sales across all regions as it served up its second quarter numbers.

The security market managed to avoid the dips the recession caused in other parts of the channel and has been quick to take advantage of the recovery in the global economy.

One of those vendors used as a benchmark for the state of the market has been Check point and with revenu increwasing 17% to $261.1m year-on-year for the quarter ended 30 June. Non-GAAP operating income also increased by 24% to $144.7m.

The vendor took the wraps off a data loss prevention solution entering that market and also introduced a new version of its ZoneAlarm free firewall consumer product.

Gil Shwed, chairman and CEO of Check Point, said that growth had come from all products and across all geographies.

"We continued to execute and deliver top and bottom line growth while further expanding our product portfolio," he said.
