Check Point announces three new security gateway appliance models: 16000 Base, 16000 Plus and the record breaking 26000 Turbo are extensions of Check Point’s new 16000 and 26000 gateway range which were introduced in June, presenting a complete line of high-end appliances with up to 64 networking interfaces, 16x 100 GbE (Gigabit Ethernet) or 40 GbE. Powered by the Check Point Infinity architecture, the 16000 and 26000 Security Gateways incorporate Check Point’s ThreatCloud and award-winning SandBlast Zero-Day Protection. These modular gateways come in base, plus and turbo models, delivering up to 30 Gbps of Gen V Threat Prevention security throughput. Redundant power supply These new appliances will allow organisations to safely and efficiently adopt cloud technologies" “As more traffic from data centres and head offices shifts to multiple cloud environments and services, which expose the organisation to Gen V (5th generation) multi-vector cyber attacks, these new appliances will allow organisations to safely and efficiently adopt cloud technologies as part of their digital transformation,” said Gil Shwed, CEO and Founder of Check Point. The details of the new security gateway appliance models are: 26000 Turbo – Top performance 3U Check Point appliance with 30 Gbps Gen V threat prevention, 316 Gbps firewall throughput and a fully redundant power supply and storage configuration 16000 Plus – 2U Check Point appliance with 12 Gbps Gen V threat prevention, 159 Gbps firewall throughput and a fully redundant power supply and storage configuration 16000 Base – Same form factors and performance as the 16000 Plus. This appliance provides the flexibility to tailor the network, storage and power supply configurations Network security solution Check Point Maestro Hyperscale Orchestrator, the hyperscale network security solution, enables a single Check Point gateway to expand capacity and performance up to 52 gateways in minutes. Shwed added, “The new Infinity enabled appliances with HyperScale technology will enable our customers to get the highest levels of security with the highest levels of performance.” The new 16000 Base and Plus, and the 26000 Turbo appliances can be ordered immediately and are scheduled to be shipped by September 2019. The 16000 Turbo, 26000 Base and Plus Appliances are already available in the market as of June 2019 from Check Point's global network of partners. The Maestro Software, which enables the Hyperscale for the 16000 and 26000 appliances, is planned to be available in October 2019.
Check Point has announced a new suite of network security products for large enterprises and data centres, which deliver an industry-leading Tera-bps (bits per second) of Gen V Threat Prevention without compromising on network performance, up time, or scalability. Powered by the Check Point Infinity architecture, the 16000 and 26000 Security Gateways incorporate Check Point’s ThreatCloud and award-winning SandBlast Zero-Day Protection. These modular gateways come in base, plus and turbo models delivering up to 24 Gbps of Gen V Threat Prevention security throughput, support connectivity standards up to 100 Gbe, and feature expansion options for up to 64 network interfaces. “Gen V (5th Generation) cyber-attacks have impacted two billion consumers and 46% of enterprises globally, yet most organisations are still deploying 2nd and 3rd generation security,” said Gil Shwed, CEO and Founder of Check Point Software. “Our new gateways – in tandem with the Maestro Orchestrator security solution – will allow our large enterprise customers to achieve unprecedented levels of Gen V security at industry leading inspection rates.” Prevention against advanced threats R80.30 Gen V Threat Prevention protects users from malicious web downloads in real-timeThe newest release of Check Point’s R80.30 software features the industry’s first threat extraction for the web and patent-pending TLS/SSL inspection capabilities, providing practical prevention against advanced threats. With R80.30, admins will no longer have to compromise on security for productivity. R80.30 Gen V Threat Prevention protects users from malicious web downloads in real-time. Threat Extraction removes exploitable content, reconstructs files to eliminate potential threats and promptly delivers the clean content to the user. In addition, a Threat Prevention dashboard provides full visibility across networks, mobile and endpoints. The recent release of R80.30 includes new patent-pending Transport Layer Security (TLS) technologies that provide state-of-the-art SSL Inspection. This technology enables enterprises to quickly inspect SSL-encrypted network traffic, evade cyber-attack techniques like Server Name Indication (SNI) manipulation, and strike the right balance between security and privacy. Up to 90% of all web traffic is encrypted, meaning that SSL inspection capability is essential for detecting threats that would be otherwise hidden. Advanced security management software R80 is the industry's most advanced threat prevention and security management software for the data centre, cloud, mobileWith over 160 technology integrations and 100 new features, R80 is the industry’s most advanced threat prevention and security management software for the data centre, cloud, mobile and endpoint. R80.30’s innovations enable the new 16000 and 26000 gateways to achieve industry leading Threat Prevention performance while streamlining the management process through a single console. Check Point Maestro Hyperscale Orchestrator, the industry’s first hyperscale network security solution, enables a single Check Point gateway to expand to the capacity and performance of 52 gateways in minutes. This nearly limitless scalability enables cloud-level resilience and reliability along with Terabit/second firewall throughput, allowing organisations to support 5G network high data rates and ultra-low latency while securing the most demanding network computing workloads. This combination of the R80.30 software, 16000/26000 Security Gateways, and the Maestro Orchestrator enables Check Point customers to achieve hyperscale network security with tera-bit levels of threat prevention performance.
