Check Point has announced new appliances to extend its security virtualisation offering.

 

The new appliance, VSX-1, is designed to provide multi-layer, multi-domain virtualised security for businesses with the ability to consolidate up to 150 security gateways with firewall, IPsec and SSL virtual private network, intrusion prevention, VoIP security and URL filtering on a single device.

 

Dr. Dorit Dor, vice president of products at Check Point, said: “By deploying VSX-1 appliances and consolidating security gateways, customers not only increase device utilization and conserve power, space and cooling without compromising security, but also increase the scalability and efficiency of their security infrastructure.

 

“Through VSX-1 service providers can optimise their security infrastructure by running and managing from one device the security needs of many customers.”

 

Meanwhile, Check Point has also extended its UTM-1 Total Security appliance line to small businesses and branch offices. Again it combines a firewall, virtual private network, intrusion prevention, anti-virus, anti-spyware, URL filtering, web security and messaging security into one centrally-managed, turn-key solution.

 

Dr Dor said: “Our partners and customers have long requested to get the full Check Point software in a smaller package and at a lower price point to fit their small business and branch office locations. Now businesses don't have to compromise and can benefit from the full value of Check Point solutions.”
