At the company’s annual customer event, the Check Point Customer Experience (CPX), Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP) today announced the release of the Check Point 1400, 3000 and 5000 Series appliances. These new threat prevention optimized appliances give organizations of any size, from small businesses to large-scale deployments, the power to run advanced threat prevention capabilities such full inspection of encrypted data, without compromising performance.
In 2015, organizations globally saw a 38 percent increase in security incidents compared to 2014, and data theft incidents rose by 56 percent, with all sizes of business from SMBs to large enterprises experiencing similar numbers of incidents1. This growing frequency and sophistication of cyberattacks, particularly those with unknown signatures, increases the risk of a successful attack and requires a shift in strategy – from detection to prevention. Together with increasing data rates and volumes, this puts pressure on the security infrastructure to keep pace.
To ensure maximum security and meet these new demands of the businesses they support, security professionals need solutions that will efficiently scale. As such, these new appliances allow customers to:
- Enable the most complete, advanced threat prevention against known and unknown threats within a powerful platform. All of the new appliances feature fully integrated firewall, intrusion prevention system (IPS), anti-bot, antivirus, application controls, URL filtering and the award-winning sandboxing technology Check Point SandBlast Zero-Day Protection.
- Effectively meet the increasing requirements to deliver full inspection of Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encrypted traffic. Innovative hardware design ensures full SSL inspection, with optimum performance, even with all threat prevention features activated.
- Easily accommodate requirements for network growth and connectivity. Flexible network connectivity options from 1GbE to 40GbE, acceleration cards and a complete portfolio of appliances enabling the best fit for any size of deployment, from SMB to enterprise campuses and carrier-class customers.
