What are Wall Street analysts saying about Check Point Software Technologies stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Check Point Software Technologies stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Growth in security subscriptions, aided by strong demand for its advanced solutions, primarily CloudGuard, Sandblast Zero-day threat prevention and Infinity solutions, drove Check Point's first-quarter results. Increased demand for network security gateways to support higher capacities aided the adoption of the company’s remote access VPN solutions. Several Infinity deals in various industries, including government, telecommunication and industrial were positives. However, lack of components in the supply chain due to coronavirus-led disruptions, and the closure of some logistic centers were hindrances. Some customers are likely to be credit constrained in the second quarter. Check Point is evaluating suitable payment terms to ensure continued service. This is expected to partially affect the cash flow in the near term." (6/29/2020)
