Check Point is one of the largest cyber security vendors globally, protecting customers from cyberattacks by detecting and removing malware and other types of threats.
Sky and Space is in the process of launching a constellation of up to 200 nano-satellites in orbit to achieve full coverage of the equatorial belt by 2020.
The company has already completed full capability tests for phone calls, instant message, voice recording and image transfers through its 3 Diamonds commercial demonstration nano-satellites.
Sky and Space has delivered a world first - as this is the first time that a voice call has been facilitated by nano-satellites and represents a breakthrough for the telecoms and satellite industries.
Until recently, nano-satellites have been predominantly used for earth observation and imagery but with advancements in miniature space technology their capabilities have become increasingly sophisticated.
Under the terms of the memorandum of understanding with Check Point, the parties will work to integrate Check Point’s cybersecurity solutions into the Sky and Space communication platform.
With the intention to later expand into more regions, this partnership marks a step to bring cyber security to a new era – an era with global coverage from space.
