The IPSec VPN Software Blade simplifies the creation and management of complex VPNs. SmartDashboard enables administrators to define participating gateways—including third-party gateways—in large-scale VPNs. VPN gateways can be configured in minutes for both star and mesh topologies with an integrated certificate authority to manage keys.
VPN connectivity should always be matched with a high level of security. The IPSec VPN Software Blade enables remote users, sites and partners to connect securely. Security policies may be applied to all encrypted traffic or a subset of traffic.
In addition, the IPSec VPN Software Blade provides strong security for the VPN against Denial of Service (DoS) attacks such as those directed against the Internet Key Exchange (IKE) mechanism. The IPSec VPN Software Blade implements a unique solution for IKE DoS, requiring that unknown gateways solve a computationally-intensive problem before allowing them to connect.
The IPSec VPN Software Blade provides various modes to address a variety of connectivity and routing issues faced by remote users, including:
The IPSec VPN Software Blade is integrated into the Software Blade Architecture. It can be easily and rapidly activated on existing Check Point Security Gateways saving time and reducing costs by leveraging existing security infrastructure.
The IPSec VPN Software Blade supports the creation of VPNs via multiple methods, including:
