CALGARY, AB June 25, 2010 Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced new UTM-1 Edge N and Safe@Office N appliances delivering gigabit firewall performance starting at just $750. In an easy to deploy desktop solution designed to meet the needs of small and medium businesses and branch offices, the unified threat management appliances deliver enterprise-class security, including firewall, Intrusion Prevention (IPS), anti-virus, anti-spam, web filtering and remote access connectivity.
The new UTM-1 Edge N and Safe@Office N appliances are based on the same Check Point technologies that secure 100 percent of the Fortune 100. These appliances include tightly integrated security and networking features, such as Gigabit Ethernet supporting high-performance networking capabilities and seamless 3G and wireless connectivity supporting the latest IEEE 802.11n Wi-Fi standards.
“Small and mid-sized organizations increasingly face the same challenges with security, networking and compliance as larger enterprises, but have far fewer resources to manage such requirements. This is especially challenging when businesses need to establish secure and reliable communication with remote offices, such as retail outlets, branch offices or with broadband teleworkers,” said Paul Comessotti, Check Point’s Canadian Country Manager. “UTM-1 Edge and Safe@Office solutions enable customers to benefit from better security and leading performance in an appliance that is simple to manage and can be deployed in less than ten minutes.”
“The new hardware has a lot of power packed in. With five times greater performance capabilities, it’s provided us with better security and faster connectivity that we need to keep business running smoothly,” said Christopher Phillips, president of Internet Managed Security Services. “It’s extremely valuable knowing it can handle multiple servers, demanding datacenter applications and heavy loads of traffic with ease.”
Check Point UTM-1 Edge and Safe@Office appliances are all-inclusive, turnkey solutions. UTM-1 Edge enables customers to centrally manage thousands of remote sites from a single enterprise console, ensuring branch offices remain just as secure as corporate sites. With Safe@Office, customers benefit from integrated security and connectivity features out-of-the-box and can be easily managed by a MSSP, providing truly simple deployment for organizations with minimal IT resources. Each appliance comes with built-in management, security updates and support, providing the perfect blend of simplicity and security for small and medium businesses and branch offices.
