Check Point Introduces Record Breaking Security Gateways
SINGAPORE – Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), a leading provider of cyber security solutions globally, today announced two new high-end appliances optimised 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.
Powered by the Check Point Infinity architecture, the 16000 and 26000 Security Gateways incorporate Check Point’s ThreatCloud and award-winning SandBlast™ Zero-Day Protection. These modular gateways come in base, plus and turbo models, delivering up to 30 Gbps of Gen V Threat Prevention security throughput.
“As more traffic from Datacenter and Headquarters shift to multiple cloud environments and services, which expose the organisation to Gen V (5th generation) multi-vector cyber attacks, these new appliances will allow organisations 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
Over 1 TBps of Threat Prevention with Maestro Unique Hyper-Scale Technology
Check Point Maestro Hyperscale Orchestrator, the industry’s leading hyperscale network security solution, enables a single Check Point gateway to expand capacity and performance to 52 gateways in minutes.
