Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. has launched the 13500, the first in a new line of 13000 security appliances designed specifically to expand the company’s data center network security offerings.
The company says that the 13500 Appliance delivers fast security performance with 23.6 Gbps of real-life firewall throughput, 5.7 Gbps of real-life IPS throughput and 3,200 SecurityPower unit (SPU) rating.
Organizations often face the dilemma of choosing between deploying comprehensive security protections and maximizing the performance of the network. The 13500 Appliance provides data centers with Check Point’s most advanced security protections, without compromises in network performance.
The 13500 Appliance leverages a wide spectrum of software optimizations and accelerations that in turn maximize hardware utilization. Check Point’s multi-layer security protections, with four pre-defined security packages including Next Generation Firewall, Threat Prevention, Data Protection and Secure-Web Gateway are supported on the 13500 Appliance.
These security packages allow for protection consolidation per appliance, delivering better performance to protect organizations against Advanced Persistent Threats and other modern cyber-attacks.
“As cyber-attacks continue to increase and evolve in sophistication, ensuring data center security has become a top priority for customers all over the world. However data center security should not be compromised by tradeoffs in performance,” said Dorit Dor, vice president of products at Check Point Software Technologies. “Our new 13000 Appliance family solves this challenge for our customers.”
