Check Point Introduces the Fastest 2U Next Generation Security Gateway
New Check Point 21700 Appliance Delivers Market-Leading Security and
Best Performance in Its Class
SAN CARLOS, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/20/13 -- Check Point(R)
Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in
securing the Internet, today announced the launch of its new 21700
Appliance providing market leading security and the fastest
performance in a compact 2U chassis. The appliance offers maximum
security performance straight out of the box with 78 Gbps of firewall
throughput, 25 Gbps of IPS throughput and a 2,922 SecurityPower(TM)
unit (SPU) rating. It also leverages Check Point's award-winning
Software Blade Architecture, providing large enterprises and data
centers with layers of industry-leading security.
Security gateways must have the ability to integrate multiple
technologies, which can create greater strain and demand on network
resources -- requiring more bandwidth and processing power. The new
21700 Appliance increases performance and traffic volumes --
delivering the highest power in a 2U form factor.
"The new 21700 security gateway is optimized to deliver multi-layered
protection in low-latency, transaction-oriented environments, while
boosting firewall performance up to 110 Gbps of throughput," said
Gabi Reish, head of product management at Check Point. "It represents
a best-in-class security gateway, empowering customers to maintain
network performance and expand security functionality, all in one
efficient and compact package."
The 21700 Appliance is a part of the 21000 appliance family, which
supports the Security Acceleration Module, a hardware accelerator
including SecurityCore(TM) technology and featuring 108 cores. With
the Security Acceleration Module, the 21700 Appliance delivers sub 5
micro-second firewall latency, and boosts firewall throughput to 110
Gbps, while providing ultra-fast VPN throughput and 3,551 SPUs. It is
ideal for transaction-oriented environments.
"Having the ability to offer a wide-range of appliances and provide
security technologies that can unify disparate network security
solutions AND improve performance -- elevates our value proposition,"
said Sandy Laney, chairman and chief executive officer at Cadre. "The
21000 appliance family offered by Check Point is extremely flexible
and can easily handle large amounts of data with an extra, optional
power boost and a low latency environment provided by the Security
Acceleration Module, giving customers the ability to scale their
security platform to meet all their security needs."
