Check Point Launches Security Appliances
Check Point Software Technologies (NASDAQ:CHKP) has introduced three new UTM-1 Total Security appliances, including a model priced less than $5,000 designed for smaller businesses.
The new product line comes with the Total Security package, which offers comprehensive security services and reduced support rates. Each appliance features integrated security functions, such as application and network-layer firewall, site-to-site and remote access VPN, gateway antivirus and anti-spyware, intrusion prevention with type-based SmartDefense security update, Web security with URL filtering, and messaging security with anti-spam.
"Businesses seeking to leverage the most out of constrained IT resources want out-of-the-box network solutions with all the key security features and services on a platform that can keep a network moving quickly and smoothly," Bob Egner, vice president of product management at Check Point, said in a statement. "With UTM-1 Total Security, customers get the most comprehensive, powerful network protection on the market — based on the same VPN-1 solution that protects the Fortune 500 — in a single, easy-to-manage, cost effective platform."
