Describing their experience, a SmartWave Technologies System Administrator noted that, “Check Point Endpoint Protection gives us advanced protection without impacting our users. We gained robust defenses that protect IP consistently—wherever it travels.”

Ten years later, Kaur Lillepold, head of network and telephone for SEB Baltics, offered high praise, stating that they “have used Check Point for a very long time, and it is heavily involved in our daily operations.” He goes on to confirm that they, “are very happy with what Check Point provides.”

Check Point In The CyberSecurity Market

It would be difficult to accurately measure the market share percentage held by Check Point, given the variety of products and solutions being offered as part of their portfolio. As a provider of security solutions, Check Point has an estimated 0.26% market share, compared to leading competitors,  Symantec with 61.57% and McAfee with 26.70%.

Check Point’s market share improve when you drill down into specific products and solutions, but their competitors also change depending on the category.

Suffice to say, with revenue expected to top $2.2-$2.375 billion in 2022, Check Point is fully capable of holding their own playing against the biggest security solution contenders.
