Check Point Software Technologies Ltd announced two high-end appliances optimized for data center and telco environments. These high-end appliances will enable cloud transformation.
Check Point announced three new security gateway appliance models: 16000 base, 16000 plus and the record-breaking 26000 turbo. These are the extensions of Check Point’s new gateway appliance series 16000 and 26000. These were introduced in June, presenting a complete line of high-end appliances with up to 64 networking interface, 16 100 GbE (Giga-bit-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.
Gil Shwed, CEO and founder, Check Point, said: “As more traffic from datacenter and headquarters shift to multiple cloud environments and services, which expose the organization to Gen V (5th generation) multi-vector cyber attacks, these new appliances will allow organizations to safely and efficiently adopt cloud technologies as part of their digital transformation.”
New 16000 base and plus, and the 26000 Turbo 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. The maestro software, which enables the hyperscale for the 16000 and 26000 appliances, is planned to be available in October 2019.
