Rättelse om Checkpoint Software Technologies

November 21st, 2006 by Joachim Strömbergson Leave a reply »

Jag har fått ett påpekande om att Checkpoint Software Technologies, som jag bloggade om i går, inte är från USA, vilket jag skrev, utan är ett företag från Israel.

Wikipedia ger naturligtvis personen rätt och Checkpoint Software Technologies är vad gäller sin hemvist ett intressant företag (utdrag från Wikipedia):

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. NASDAQ: CHKP is a software company that is best known for its firewall and VPN products. The company was founded in 1993 in Ramat-Gan, Israel, and has approximately 1400 employees. Check Point development center centres are located in Israel and in Belarus. They also have offices in Redwood City, California and in the Dallas, Texas area. Due to their heavy presence in the United States, the company often bills itself as being of a binational nature.

Check Point acquired SofaWare Technologies in 1999. SofaWare was founded in 1999 in Ramat-Gan, Israel. SofaWare’s embedded software powers Internet security appliances, DSL and Wi-Fi routers as well as broadband modems from companies such as Nokia, NEC and Toshiba, as well as Check Point’s Safe@Office and VPN-1 Edge security appliance.

Check Point acquired Zone Labs in 2004. In October, 2005, Check Point announced it would acquire Sourcefire, the developers of Snort for $225 million. Both the Department of Defense and the FBI objected to the acquisition due to national security concerns. The acquisition was pending during an investigation by the Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), but was announced to have collapsed over security concerns related to the “Snort” software which guards some classified U.S. military and intelligence computers. [1] The acquisition has been since withdrawn [2]


Och nu köper dom alltså Svenska Protect Data. Jag gissar att DoD och FBI inte kommer att bråka om det affären, men borde Svenska myndigheter reagera?

Tack till personen som skickade påpekandet. Jag uppskattar återmatning (även) när jag gör fel och lovar att bli bättre med att kontrollera fakta. (Är mindre nöjd med kvaliteten på de senaste blogginläggen och skall försöka skärpa mig.)
