Netwerkbeheerders hoeven geen concessies meer te doen om strikte veiligheidseisen te combineren met de hoogste prestatieniveaus van netwerken

’s-Hertogenbosch, 19 november 2007 – Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), wereldwijd leidend in internetbeveiliging, kondigt de beschikbaarheid aan van de nieuwe VPN-1 Power Multi-core. Check Point introduceert hiermee het eerste VPN-1-platform dat gebruik maakt van de CoreXL versnellingstechnologie die in mei van dit jaar gelanceerd werd. VPN-1 Power Multi-core zet een nieuwe standaard voor de optimale wisselwerking tussen netwerkbeveiliging en –prestaties, waardoor organisaties de hoogste graad in geïntegreerde applicatiebeveiliging kunnen halen zonder beperkingen voor het netwerkverkeer of negatieve invloed op het internetgebruik.

De nieuwe VPN-1 Power Multi-core maakt gebruik van open multi-core architecturen, waaronder de Quad-Core Xeon Processor 5300-serie van Intel, om zodoende een ongekende processorsnelheid van maximaal 5,3 Mbps te realiseren voor intrusion prevention met een beveiligingsprofiel dat ontworpen werd om de meeste grote bedrijfsnetwerken al aan de rand te beschermen.

De belangrijkste prestatiestatistieken zijn onder meer:


12 Gbps firewall inspection voorziet de meest veeleisende bedrijfsomgevingen van snelheden die tot nog toe voorbehouden waren aan datacentra
1,8 Gbps intrusion prevention inspection met een strikt beschermingsbestand (70% van de afweermechanismen ingeschakeld) biedt maximale veiligheid zonder concessies aan prestaties
Inspectie van ruim 2 miljoen datapakketten per seconde verbetert de gebruikerservaring bij nieuwe applicaties zoals VoIP en multimediatoepassingen
Ruim 60.000 nieuwe verbindingen per seconde voor websites met een groot aantal transacties zoals banken en rekencentra.Voor meer informatie over de nieuwe VPN-1 Power Multi-core verwijzen we u naar het onderstaande, Engelstalige persbericht.

NEW CHECK POINT VPN-1 MULTI-CORE DELIVERS MULTI-GIGABIT SPEED BASED UPON ACCELERATION TECHNOLOGY BREAKTHROUGHS

Era of sacrifice and compromise is over for network administrators seeking strict security with the highest levels of network performance

REDWOOD CITY, CALIF., – November 15, 2007 – Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced the immediate availability of the new VPN-1® Power ™ Multi-core. Leveraging Check Point’s patent-pending CoreXL acceleration technology announced last May, VPN-1 Power Multi-core redefines the balance of security and performance; ensuring organizations receive the highest levels of integrated application security without impeding network traffic and degrading an end user’s Internet experience.

The new VPN-1 Power Multi-core leverages open multi-core architectures, for example the Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® Processor 5300 Series and others, in order to deliver unprecedented processing speeds of up to 5.3 Mbps integrated intrusion prevention throughput with a security profile designed to protect the perimeter of most large enterprise networks.

“Thanks to Check Point’s innovations, custom ASICs are quickly becoming obsolete,” said Paulo Vieira, network administrator at Porto University. “Before we deployed VPN-1 Multi-core on our network, we were constantly faced with the need to make no-win compromises between security and network performance. But with Check Point, there is no compromise, and we are free to focus our efforts on leveraging our network for business growth.”

“As dynamic application-layer threats proliferate, VPN-1 Power Multi-core gives administrators predictably high levels of performance previously unattainable. CIOs need to be able to deploy advanced business applications and not worry about how to balance security risks and application performance,” said Bob Egner, vice president of product management at Check Point. “With VPN-1 Power Multi-core, there is no trade off. Applications will be able to have the service level the CIO wants and have the level of protection a CSO needs.”

Key performance statistics include:

12 Gbps firewall inspection provides data center level speed for the most demanding enterprise environments
1.8 Gbps intrusion prevention inspection with strict protection file (70% of protections turned on) offers maximum security without compromising performance
Over 2 million packets per second inspected to improve end user experience for new applications such as VoIP and multimedia applications
Over 60,000 new connections/second for sites with a high number of transactions such as banks or data centers

Check Point VPN-1 Power Multi-core is available immediately. Pricing upgrades to existing gateways are available starting at $2,500US, with new gateways starting at $15,000US.
