Security Management Portal (SMP) by Check Point is a cloud-based security solution for small businesses who outsource the management of their business’s IT security to professionals employed by various security firms.
SMP users receive a Check Point Unified Threat Management (UTM) appliance, which is installed in-office and then managed in the cloud by Check Point security experts. Protections provided through the UTM include firewall, antivirus, anti-spam and email security and intrusion prevention (IPS). In addition, URL filtering defends against online threats and enables businesses to control which sites employees visit, while application control allows firms to decide which programs can run on work computers.
SMP also includes virtual private network (VPN) functionality, which enables users to securely access company networks and resources while traveling or working remotely. Support is offered via phone, email, online live chat and a support request portal.
