Magic Quadrant Placement For Check Point Enterprise Firewalls

Check Point : 08 April, 2010  (Company News)
Gartner recognizes Check Point Software Technologies for its success in the development and sales of Enterprise Network Firewalls
Check Point Software Technologies has announced its position in the Leaders quadrant in Gartner's recent Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls.

According to the report, "In 2009, Gartner saw market pressures accelerate the demand for next-generation firewall platforms that provide the capability to detect and block sophisticated attacks, as well as enforce granular security policy at the application (versus port and protocol) level."

Since pioneering the enterprise firewall in 1993 based on its patented stateful-inspection technology, Check Point has continued to innovate. As recently as 2009, Check Point introduced the Software Blade architecture that gives businesses the ability to create their own security gateway from a library of security applications or "software blades," such as firewall, virtual private network (VPN), IPS, anti-virus, and many others.

In 2010, Check Point will add security controls for over 50,000 Web 2.0 widgets and more than 4,500 Internet applications to provide businesses unparalleled granular control over application usage and enable security administrators to prevent threats associated with the use of certain Internet applications. Check Point will offer this new level of security controls as a Software Blade that will be available for all gateways.

"We're continuing our leadership in 2010 by driving innovation into the enterprise firewall market," said Juliette Sultan, head of global marketing at Check Point. "Our software blade architecture already enables corporations to move security from detection to prevention. In 2010, they will benefit from the most granular policies combining user, application and content."

Check Point R70 Software Blades enables businesses of all sizes to tailor their network security infrastructure to meet their exact functional and performance needs with centralized management, simple deployment and full extensibility. This flexible solution allows customers to customize their security while unifying management of network, IPS and endpoint security.
