Check Point has announced two new high-end appliances optimized for data center and Telco environments.
High-end appliances will enable cloud transformation
Check Point announces three new security gateway appliance models: 16000 Base, 16000 Plus and the record breaking 26000 Turbo are extensions of Check Point’s new gateway appliance series 16000 and 26000 which were introduced in June, presenting a complete line of high-end appliances with up to 64 networking interface, 16 100 GbE (Giga-bit-Ethernet) or 40 GbE.
“As more traffic from Datacenter and Headquarters shift to multiple cloud environments and services, which expose the organization to Gen V (5th generation) multi-vector cyber attacks, these new appliances will allow organizations to safely and efficiently adopt cloud technologies as part of their digital transformation,” said Gil Shwed, CEO and Founder of Check Point Software Technologies.
The details of the new security gateway appliance models are as follows:
26000 Turbo – Top performance 3U Check Point appliance with 30 Gbps Gen V threat prevention, 316 Gbps firewall throughput and a fully redundant power supply and storage configuration
16000 Plus – 2U Check Point appliance with 12 Gbps Gen V threat prevention, 159 Gbps firewall throughput and a fully redundant power supply and storage configuration
16000 Base – Same form factors and performance as the 16000 Plus. This appliance provides the flexibility to tailor the network, storage and power supply configurations
