  • Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (CHKP) Announces Launch Of 21600 Appliance With New Datacenter Security Offering 0 comments
    Oct 19, 2012 6:39 PM | about stocks: CHKP

    Check Point Software Technologies, the Internet security leader worldwide, announced today the release of its innovative 21600 Appliance. The new product delivers incredibly fast throughput of up to 110 Gbps, a 30 percent increase in SecurityPower™ units (SPUs), and ultra-low latency for transaction oriented environments. Designed to optimize the entire suite of Software Blade protections, the 21600 Appliance provides industry-leading security and performance to large enterprises and data centers.

    Modern security gateways are required to go beyond the firewall and integrate directly with a handful of technologies to meet a growing and constantly advancing range of security demands. Many businesses face an astonishing challenge to keep up with advent of mobile computing, cloud technologies, and social media, while simultaneously protecting themselves against a bombardment of sophisticated Internet threats and destructive malware. The combination of these elements has produced a significant strain on network resources, which now require increased throughput power, bandwidth, and processing speed.

    Check Point's award-winning Software Blade Architecture™ is the primary driver behind the 21600 Appliance's impressive performance. It also allows organizations to scale their security platform in accordance with perpetually evolving requirements. Customers can consolidate any combination of protections, including: Firewall, VPN, IPS, Application Control, Mobile Access, Data Loss Prevention, Anti-Bot, Identity Awareness, URL Filtering, Anti-spam, Antivirus, Advanced Networking, and Acceleration & Clustering, on a single, multi-function gateway.

    "With the plethora of risks constantly threatening the corporate environment, security is becoming top of mind for businesses today. Our customers demand to have security appliances that perform multiple advanced security functions, while offering unbeatable throughput," said Gabi Reish, head of product management at Check Point Software Technologies. "Our appliance line delivers the best in class 2U security gateway in the market which enables customers to maintain network performance and expand security functionality, while requiring minimum physical footprint."

    With Check Point's multi-core and security acceleration technologies, the 21600 provides improved firewall throughput between 75 to 110 Gbps. The 21600 asserts a SPU rating of 3,300 - helping businesses maximize security with optimal performance. The Check Point 21600 Appliance also supports the Security Acceleration Module, which delivers sub 5 micro second latency and boosts firewall throughput to 110 Gbps, making it an ideal solution for low-latency and high-performance transaction-oriented environments.
