Check Point RSA Conference Sessions Zero in on Targeted Malware Attacks and Critical Infrastructure Security

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 22 February 2013 Release date- 21022013 - San Carlos, CA - Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced their speaking sessions at RSA Conference 2013.

Check Point representatives Tomer Teller and Bob Hinden will be presenting this year, focusing on advanced malware detection and smart grid security, respectively.

WHAT: 'Detecting the 1%: Advanced Targeted Malware Detection' The meteoric rise of specialized, targeted malware can catch even the most experienced security experts off guard. These super-stealthy cyber-attacks can defeat the best anti-virus/anti-intrusion systems in the world. This session provides an overview of existing defense mechanisms, including how they can be defeated, and suggests new techniques that can be used to detect and mitigate against advanced threats.

WHO: Tomer Teller, Security Evangelist at Check Point WHEN: Tuesday, February 26th, 3:50-4:50 PM WHERE: Moscone Center, Room 124 747 Howard Street, San Francisco, CA WHAT: 'The Security Threat to Smart Grid is Worse than We Think' The need to secure smart grid is obvious. After all, who wants hackers to have the ability to easily turn off all power Recent malware like Stuxnet and Flame that target critical infrastructures are good examples of the looming threat. The challenge is to secure smart grid in a way that can keep up with quickly evolving threats.

WHO: Bob Hinden, Co-Inventor of IPv6 and Check Point Fellow WHEN: Thursday, February 28th, 1:40-2:00 PM WHERE: Moscone Center, Room 135 747 Howard Street, San Francisco, CA 'We've seen the potentially disastrous impact of attacks on the power infrastructure in the past year,' said Bob Hinden, co-inventor of IPv6 and Check Point fellow. 'In fact the Department of Homeland Security Critical Infrastructure CERT shows that over 40% of reported infrastructure attacks were against Energy related infrastructure. The imperative to secure our smart grids from cyber attacks is clearer now than ever before.'

Delivering First Class Communications With WebRTC

This webcast captures a recent discussion about WebRTC between Jim Donovan, Director of Product Management at Oracle and Larry Hettick, Editorial Director and Senior Research Fellow at Webtorials. The topics cover WebRTC reliability, interoperability, and security--looking at how Oracle addresses these issues.

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

ConnectCare & Unified Contact Manager

SPAN's ConnectCare is a WebRTC-based telemedicine app, which allows consumers to easily and instantly avail clinical healthcare from the providers, regardless of their location. This app is extremely useful to healthcare providers, patients and their caregivers alike.

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
