(Nasdaq: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, recently announced its new Multi-Domain Management software blades – Global Policy and Security Domain – that deliver virtual security management to businesses of all sizes. The new software blades enable businesses to segment their security management into virtual domains while consolidating their hardware infrastructure. In addition, the new software blades allow for stronger and better security with the deployment of consistent global policies across all domains.

For example, businesses can centralizethe configuration and management oftheir firewall, VPN, IPS and othersecurity protections across domains while maintaining separation of duties across each security function with a granular role-based administration. In addition, through the Global Policy Software Blade, administrators can achieve better and stronger security by enforcing a common security baseline and sharing a common network topology across multiple domains.
