By Digital News Asia July 31, 2013
- First in a new line designed to expand company's data centre network security offerings
- Comes with four pre-defined security packages that protect against modern cyber-attacks
CHECK Point Software Technologies Ltd has launched its 13500 unit, the first in a new line of 13000 appliances designed specifically to expand the company's data centre network security offerings.
Organisations often face the dilemma of choosing between deploying comprehensive security protections and maximising the performance of the network, the company said in a statement.
The 13500 Appliance provides data centres with Check Point's most advanced security protections, without compromises in network performance, it claimed.
The new appliance also uses a wide spectrum of software optimisations and accelerations that in turn maximise hardware utilisation, the company said.
Check Point's multi-layer security protections, with four pre-defined security packages including Next Generation Firewall, Threat Prevention, Data Protection and Secure-Web Gateway, are supported on the 13500 Appliance.
These security packages allow for protection consolidation per appliance, delivering better performance to protect organisations against Advanced Persistent Threats and other modern cyber-attacks, Check Point said.
“As cyber-attacks continue to increase and evolve in sophistication, ensuring data centre security has become a top priority for customers all over the world,” said Dorit Dor, vice president of products at Check Point Software Technologies.
“However data centre security should not be compromised by trade-offs in performance,” she added.
Starting at US$79,000, the 13500 Appliance is available immediately from Check Point’s worldwide partners. To locate one, click here.
