The company’s focus on enhancing mobile capabilities is helping it tap greater opportunities. Acquisitions have helped it in broadening its portfolio and enter newer market, which has eventually driven its revenues. The recent buyouts of Dome9 and ForceNock will help expand the company’s security capabilities. Check Point continues to win new customer accounts, which is boosting its revenues.
