CALGARY, AB – April 11, 2013 – Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, has announced the launch of its new 1100 Appliances providing enterprise-class security in a compact desktop package perfect for branch and remote offices. The 1100 Appliances offer unparalleled performance with 1.5 Gbps of max firewall throughput, 220 Mbps of max VPN throughput and a 31 SecurityPower™ unit (SPU) rating.
Starting at $599, Leading Next Generation Firewall
Now Available for Branches and Remote Offices
The 1100 Appliances leverage Check Point’s award-winning Software Blade Architecture™ that enables organizations to tailor their security platform to meet current and future requirements. This is the first time that Check Point is bringing the entire breadth of its Software Blade Architecture to appliances at the entry-level price of $599, which enables customers to deploy any combination of multi-layered protections, including: Firewall, VPN, IPS, Application Control, Mobile Access, Data Loss Prevention, Anti-Bot, Identity Awareness, URL Filtering, Anti-spam and Antivirus.
Cybercrime can occur across an entire network, from headquarters, to the data centre, to remote offices. While the main offices and data centres are often carefully protected, it is at the branch offices where security gaps often exist. With the proliferation of security threats and sophisticated attacks, hackers will try to exploit a network through any weak links. The 1100 Appliances provide branch and remote offices the same proven security protections found in enterprise-scale network deployments.
“Branch offices can be considered enterprises’ weakest link. Security solutions for remote sites cannot be neglected, regardless of the site’s size or purpose,” said Paul Comessotti, Canadian Regional Director, Check Point Software Technologies. “The 1100 Appliances offer Check Point’s industry-leading security for branch offices and come complete with customizable management, optimal performance and appropriate hardware pricing and design.”
The Check Point 1100 Appliances come pre-loaded with Check Point’s industry-leading security technologies for small offices of one to 100 employees. The appliances offer flexible and intuitive local web-based management and/or profile-based centralized management through Check Point’s SmartCenter.
Key features of the Check Point 1100 Appliances include:
- Check Point’s powerful SmartCenter security management solutions ensure scalable deployments, consistent organization-wide security policies and easy management of hundreds of devices.
- Simple and intuitive management, allowing for quick setup and configuration even by non-IT professionals.
- Compact desktop form-factor, with ten 1-gigabit Ethernet ports.
- Flexible internet options to meet the varying needs of individual branch offices.
Check Point 1100 Appliances come in three models (1120, 1140 and 1180). Each appliance model can be equipped with a variety of internet access options including 3G, ADSL connectivity and Ethernet.
