Wider threat coverage with Check Point R70

Check Point : 25 February, 2009  (New Product)
R70 security gateway from Check Point delivers complete intrusion prevention and is based on software blade architecture
Check Point Software Technologies has announced Check Point R70, a major new version of its security gateway and management solutions. Check Point R70 is based on the newly announced Software Blade architecture that revolutionizes security by providing new levels of flexibility, simplicity and extensibility. Check Point R70 enables business 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.

As part of R70, Check Point is also transforming the intrusion prevention (IPS) space by introducing a new IPS software blade. The new IPS software blade delivers the industry's most comprehensive protection, new dynamic IPS management capabilities and multi-gigabit performance unmatched by today's IPS systems. The flexibility of R70 allows customers to deploy Check Point's new IPS technologies on any R70 gateway.

"Check Point R70 brings to customers a new approach to deploying network security, one that is flexible and extensible," said Dr. Dorit Dor, vice president of products at Check Point. "With this new release, customers can benefit from the flexibility of the new software blade architecture. In addition, R70's ground breaking intrusion prevention blade allows customers to deploy preemptive and accurate protections to security gateways with deep granularity, unparalleled threat control and the highest levels of performance."

Based on Check Point's new Software Blade architecture, Check Point R70 provides businesses with flexible security. The Software Blade architecture empowers businesses with the ability to select the exact security applications or "software blades" they need, such as firewall, virtual private network (VPN), IPS, anti-virus, etc. from a library of over 20 software blades. New software blades can be added without deploying new hardware, reducing deployment times and operational costs. Furthermore, the new architecture will allow customers to guarantee performance by allocating resources to specific software blades.

Check Point R70's new IPS software blade uses a multi-tier intrusion prevention engine to provide unrivaled threat control and up to 10 Gbps total system performance of firewall with integrated IPS. The IPS software blade offers complete threat coverage for client, server and OS vulnerabilities, malware and worm infections, etc. The increased performance of Check Point R70 means businesses have a unique alternative to preemptively protect themselves against all threats by deploying the IPS software blade on every gateway.

Check Point R70 offers customers two new security management blades for IPS event analysis and provisioning of gateways. The IPS event analysis blade provides the ability to focus on critical events and functions, allowing customers to graphically view high volumes of event data in real-time and quickly drill down from a business view of events to a forensic level of details. The new provisioning software blade provides centralized administration and activation of Check Point security devices via a single management console. The unique unified management architecture of Check Point R70 allows administrators to manage, set policy and apply protections across the entire security infrastructure from a single interface.

"With the largest deployment of managed Check Point devices in the world, VeriSign Managed Security Services believes the Check Point R70 release allows our customers to be better informed on the impact each new protection will have on the overall system utilization," said Marco Garcia, security engineer at VeriSign. "This, together with new functionalities in Check Point's IPS technology represents significant improvement over previous releases, allowing VeriSign to react more quickly and efficiently to true security events."

Check Point R70 features and benefits include:

* Extensible Software Blade architecture allows for quick additions of security functionality to existing security solution, reducing deployment costs while increasing security effectiveness
* New IPS software blade provides complete threat coverage for client, server and OS vulnerabilities, malware/worm infections, and more and enables up to 10Gbps total system performance of Firewall with integrated IPS on today's existing hardware configurations
* New IPS event analysis software blade includes Timeline View, Multi-dimensional sorting and confidence indexing to allow customers to focus on critical data in real-time and to quickly drill down from business view to forensics level
* Provisioning management software blade provides centralized administration and provisioning of Check Point security devices via a single management console for fast deployment
"Check Point R70 represents the next wave in Internet security, providing businesses with a modular security gateway and management solution with unparallel threat control and performance," concluded Dor.
