Check Point scoffs security dashboard firm

Will add bells and whistles in a GRC/SIEM stylie

Intelligent flash storage arrays

Check Point has acquired governance, risk management and compliance (GRC) firm Dynasec. Financial terms of the deal, announced Monday, were undisclosed.

The acquisition allows Check Point to extend its 3D Security line of firewalls and VPNs to add features that enable companies to "view security as a business process, focusing on policy, people and enforcement", according to the Israeli security firm.

Functions of GRC technology include security policy distribution and response, IT risk evaluation and compliance dashboards, as well as security problem remediation. The market, fiercely competitive but not fully formed, has some overlap with the adjacent Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) market that has been a hotbed of acquisitions of late.

McAfee and IBM have both bought into the SIEM market with the acquisition of start-ups NitroSecurity and Q1 Labs, earlier this month, for example. ®
