IT

Säkerhetsföretaget Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. har lanserat Check Point Virtual Systems som gör det möjligt att konsolidera flera säkerhetsgateways på en enda appliance eller öppen server. Den nya lösningen förenklar säkerheten, minskar kostnaderna och ökar prestanda för privata molnmiljöer.

Med Check Point Virtual Systems kan organisationer skydda flera olika nätverkssegment genom att välja en kombination av olika mjukvarublad, som exempelvis Brandvägg, VPN, Intrusion Prevention (IPS), Application Control, URL Filtering, Anti-Bot, Antivirus och Identity Awareness. Det är det bredaste utbudet av virtualiserade säkerhetslösningar som erbjuds idag.

– De flesta större organisationer använder flera olika typer av säkerhetshårdvara som kräver separat drift och underhåll, vilket kan gör att det blir dyrt, ineffektivt och svårt att hantera säkerheten i nätverket. Att använda en virtualiserad säkerhetslösning är ett effektivt sätt för att minimera kostnaderna och få en mindre komplex nätverksmiljö, säger Lars Berggren, country manager, Check Point Sverige.

Med Check Point Virtual Systems kan man få en enklare nätverksstruktur genom att konsolidera upp till 250 virtuella system på en enda gateway och använda skräddarsydda mjukvarublad och policies som är anpassade efter organisationens specifika affärsbehov. Virtual Systems kan användas med alla nya Check Point enterprise- och data center-appliances.

CHECK POINT TAPS THE POWER OF VIRTUALIZATION TO SIMPLIFY SECURITY FOR PRIVATE CLOUDS

New Virtual Systems Enable Software Blades for Customized Protections

REDWOOD CITY, CA – Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today introduced Check Point Virtual Systems that allow businesses to consolidate security gateways onto a single appliance or open server -- simplifying security, reducing costs and boosting performance for private cloud environments. With Check Point Virtual Systems, customers can secure multiple network segments by selecting any combination of Check Point software blade protections -- such as Firewall, VPN, Intrusion Prevention (IPS), Application Control, URL Filtering, Anti-Bot, Antivirus and Identity Awareness -- providing customers with the widest range of virtualized security protections available.

“From enterprises to large service providers, administrators often have multiple security appliances in place, each requiring separate maintenance and management, which can make security expensive, difficult to manage and inefficient. An effective way to minimize complexity and cost is through security virtualization,” said Dorit Dor, vice president of products at Check Point Software Technologies. “Check Point has been providing customers with virtual firewalls on dedicated systems for years. Now, Check Point is taking virtualization to the next level -- enabling customers to provision virtual systems on every gateway and with the breadth of software blade protections.”

With Check Point Virtual Systems, customers can build secure private clouds on any gateway or open server and reduce complexity by consolidating up to 250 Virtual Systems on a single gateway -- each with customized software blade protections and policies tailored to specific business needs. For enterprises who manage multiple groups or business units, or MSPs who service multiple customers from a single system, Check Point allows customers to benefit from security consolidation through virtualization, while maintaining a separation of IT duties with dedicated Virtual Systems for Web Security, Threat Prevention, Firewall and Remote Access. Customers can also cluster up to eight gateways using Check Point’s patented Virtual System Load Sharing (VSLS) technology, for unmatched scalability. As customers’ business needs grow, Check Point enables companies to leverage the power of virtualized security to reduce costs and improve operational efficiency.

“For many companies, virtualized security has become a strategic technology investment. Consolidating multiple security functions onto a single gateway can result in significant cost savings,” said Chris Christiansen, Program VP for Security Products and Services at IDC. “Check Point’s security expertise, combined with its Software Blade Architecture, offers customers a solution to ease network strain and complexity when securing private cloud environments.”

With Check Point Virtual Systems, customers can boost performance for virtualized security based on the company’s new 64-bit GAiA™ operating system, enabling organizations to benefit from over eight times more concurrent connections than previous versions (VSX). In addition, the solution utilizes multi-core processors with CoreXL technology, allowing customers to achieve higher performance.

The Virtual Systems are supported on all the new Check Point enterprise and data center appliances. For more information, visit http://www.checkpoint.com/products/virtual-systems/index.html.

“With Check Point Virtual Systems, we’re pleased to provide customers a way to consolidate multiple gateways on one device, while offering enhanced security performance and scalability based on GAiA OS and patented VSLS technology. For the first time, organizations have the ability to truly leverage the power of virtualized security and deploy all of the protections they need using virtual systems just as they do with their physical gateways,” concluded Dor.

Pricing and Availability
Pricing starts at $3,000 for three virtual systems. Customers also benefit from fixed software blade licensing that allows a software blade license to be used across any number of Virtual Systems. Customers using Check Point 4800 appliances and above will also benefit from a Virtual System that is bundled with each appliance. 

Check Point Virtual Systems are available immediately through the Check Point worldwide network of value-added resellers. To find a Check Point partner, visit: http://partners.us.checkpoint.com/partnerlocator/.
