Branch Office Gateway Appliance With 1.5 Gigabit Performance

Check Point : 12 August, 2010  (New Product)
Check Point has released the Series 80 Appliance based on software blade architecture with high performance at low cost for remote branch office network security
Check Point has announced a new security gateway, the Series 80 Appliance, designed for remote and branch offices and delivering 1.5 gigabit performance for under $2,500. The new Series 80 Appliance is based on the Check Point Software Blade Architecture and provides the same security and flexibility enjoyed by larger offices and enterprises.

Check Point Series 80 Appliance includes several software blades including firewall, IPS, VPN, anti-virus and anti-malware, URL filtering, anti-spam and email security software. The new appliance delivers the best price/performance in its class with less than $1.6/Mbps for firewall and $5.6/Mbps for IPS.

In addition, it offers the highest port density with 10 GbE ports to manage the entire branch network in one appliance and come in a small desktop form factor ideal for remote branch offices. The Series 80 Appliance is based on Check Point security technologies that today secure 100 percent of the Fortune 100.

"Enterprises are demanding more protection, faster performance and increased simplicity to protect their entire network from data centres to the smallest branch offices," said Dorit Dor, vice president of products at Check Point Software Technologies. "Today we are bringing to market an ideal solution for these smaller offices. Our new Series 80 Appliance is stronger in security, faster in performance but smaller in size and price and provides companies greater security at the ends of their network, the branch offices."

The Check Point Series 80 Appliance can be activated in one single click by corporate IT and then deployed locally within minutes without additional corporate support. Security administrators can define policies for branch offices from a single, centrally located Check Point Security Management console. These policies, along with other security profiles, can be automatically applied to remote office gateways to simplify deployment, reduce IT overhead and maintain strong security consistency.

"Check Point's Series 80 Appliance has helped us create a holistic approach to security. We can set security expectations at a high level and ensure consistent protection across all of our customers' remote office environments," says Craig Deveau, senior product manager, managed security services at Allstream. "In addition, with the Series 80 high port-density, we can minimize the overhead of switches and routers at the branches and maintain consistent security standards without a dedicated IT employee."

"Customers want flexibility and simplicity. The Series 80 Appliance addresses both needs while enhancing overall security," concluded Dor.
