Features

Check Point Accelerated Data (ADP) modules are hardware options that can be inserted into IP Appliances to improve traffic performance and extend appliance utilization. With ADP, CPU workloads can be shared between the main processor and the ADP module processor to increase performance without having to completely replace existing hardware.

Advanced routing and networking supports a broad range of traffic types, including PIM, RIP, OSFP, and BGP, and enables remote troubleshooting, capacity planning, and configuration management.

Check Point Network Voyager offers web-based configuration, monitoring and management, allowing network administrators to manage IP Appliances remotely through a feature rich GUI. From the Network Voyager interface, administrators can easily manage hardware, OS and application deployment, networking, routing, troubleshoot systems or optimize a configuration, manage high availability, set role-based administration and monitor network traffic and IP appliance health.

Network Voyager is offered with IPSO only.

Check Point IP Appliances support a large portfolio of interface options including copper and fiber Ethernet with a range of port density and performance options of up to 10 Gbps. They also come with storage options: HDD, flash or hybrid.

Optionally available IP appliance clustering enables maintenance updates through workload redistribution. Administrators can perform transparent “rolling upgrades,” in which nodes are gracefully removed from the cluster, upgraded, and reinserted, all without any disruption to end-user operations.Other features include:

  • Hot swappable hard drives, fans, and power supplies available in some models
  • Easy access design (slide out trays, slide in cards)
  • Retrofit ADP modules to extend the appliance’s performance
  • DC power supplies available in some models

The Check Point Software Blade architecture is the first and only security architecture that delivers complete, flexible and manageable security to companies of any size. With unprecedented flexibility and expandability, Software Blades deliver lower cost of ownership and cost-efficient protection that meet any need, today and in the future.

Full integration into the modular Software Blade Architecture allows for rapid and easy activation on any Check Point security gateway.
All IP appliances include Firewall, IPSec VPN, IPS, Application Control, Identity Awareness, Acceleration & Clustering and Advanced Networking Software Blades.

The IP Appliance comes with a pre-configured set of Software Blades. It can be quickly and easily extended to meet new and evolving security requirements with additional Check Point Software Blades such as the Web Security Software Blade.
