Check Point Introduces Big Security for Small Businesses 
New 600 Appliances Provide Fortune 100 Security to Protect Small
Businesses Against the Latest Cyber Attacks 
SAN CARLOS, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 --   Check Point(R)
Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), the worldwide leader in
securing the Internet, today launched its new 600 Appliances,
delivering powerful Fortune 100 security to protect small businesses
against the latest cyber attacks, including viruses, spam, malicious
Websites, among others. The 600 Appliances provide an affordable,
all-in-one security solution with market leading performance of 1.5
Gbps of firewall throughput and 37 SecurityPower(TM) units.  
Cyber security is a growing challenge for small businesses. According
to a new Verizon report(1), of the 621 confirmed data breaches
studied, close to half occurred at companies with fewer than 1,000
employees, including 193 incidents at entities with fewer than 100
workers. Increasingly, cybercriminals are preying on small businesses
as they lack the sophisticated security that larger businesses have.  
Check Point's 600 Appliances provide comprehensive security to ensure
small business employees and data are protected at all times. The 600
Appliances come pre-loaded with enterprise-class capabilities,
including firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention (IPS), anti-virus,
anti-spam, application control, and URL filtering. Most notably, the
600 Appliances run the same industry-leading next-generation firewall
and threat prevention capabilities found on Check Point products used
by all of the Fortune 100.  
The 600 appliances are easy to set up and manage even by non-IT
professionals. Flexible Web-based management options are offered
through a simple and intuitive user interface. And with security
policies pre-defined, small businesses can get their security up and
running in a matter of minutes. 
"We tested Check Point's new 600 appliances, and the set up was fast,
simple, and extremely straight-forward," said Nasser Hassan, chief
technology officer of security technology provider, Zegtech. "We are
very impressed by this new line. The 600 appliances are
easy-to-manage and provide complete security perfect for small
"Cyber attacks on small businesses are on the rise. It's no longer
just the larger businesses that are being attacked, but companies
with a hundred employees or less are also lucrative targets, and no
business sector is immune," said Dorit Dor, vice president of
products at Check Point.  
"With limited resources, small businesses are often not equipped to
deal with the expert cybercriminal. The 600 Appliances solve this
problem and offer small businesses an inexpensive, yet comprehensive
security solution that provide secure access to critical resources
anywhere anytime, while minimizing the risk of a data breach."
