Check Point introduces new network security products


Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., provider of cyber security solutions has announced a new suite of network security products for large enterprises and data centers that deliver an industry-leading Tera-bps (bits per second) of Gen V Threat Prevention without compromising on network performance, up time, or scalability.

Powered by the Check Point Infinity architecture, the 16000 and 26000 Security Gateways incorporate Check Point’s ThreatCloud and SandBlast Zero-Day Protection. These modular gateways come in base, plus and turbo models delivering up to 24 Gbps of Gen V Threat Prevention security throughput, support connectivity standards up to 100 Gbe, and feature expansion options for up to 64 network interfaces.

Gen V (5th Generation) cyber-attacks have impacted two billion consumers and 46 percent of enterprises, yet most organizations are still deploying 2nd and 3rdgeneration security,” said Gil Shwed, CEO and Founder of Check Point Software. “Our new gateways – in tandem with the Maestro Orchestrator security solution – will allow our large enterprise customers to achieve unprecedented levels of Gen V security at industry leading inspection rates.”

A few weeks ago at CPX New York, CEO and Founder Gil Shwed announced the newest release of Check Point’s R80.30 software with the industry’s first threat extraction for the web and patent-pending TLS/SSL inspection capabilities.

R80.30 ushers in a new era of security with the industry’s first threat extraction for web, providing practical prevention against advanced threats. With R80.30, admins will no longer have to compromise on security for productivity. R80.30 Gen V Threat Prevention protects users from malicious web downloads in real-time. Threat Extraction removes exploitable content, reconstructs files to eliminate potential threats and promptly delivers the clean content to the user. In addition, a Threat Prevention dashboard provides full visibility across networks, mobile and endpoints

The recent release of R80.30 includes new patent-pending Transport Layer Security (TLS) technologies that provide state-of-the-art SSL Inspection. This technology enables enterprises to quickly inspect SSL-encrypted network traffic, evade cyber attack techniques like Server Name Indication (SNI) manipulation, and strike the right balance between security and privacy. Given that 90 percent of web traffic is encrypted, Check Point’s SSL inspection innovation impacts enterprises across the globe.
