Time to Turbo Charge your Enterprise with new Hyperscale Gateways
by Michael A. Greenberg, Product Marketing Manager, Security Platforms, published June 6th 2019
In 2018, over 2 billion people and 46% of all companies were impacted by cyber-attacks.
In 2019, we see this trend expanding with Gen V attacks growing in sophistication, utilizing multiple attack surfaces and vectors. To make matters even more challenging is dealing with the 30 percent increase in traffic loads on our networks coupled with the fact that over 90 percent of internet traffic is encrypted with HTTPS. Unfortunately, current security solutions are blind to all of this traffic and unable to properly inspect SSL encrypted traffic.
Check Point introduces two new security gateways: 16000 and 26000 Security Gateways. Enterprises around the world can now protect themselves with up to 1 Tera-bps of Threat Prevention performance.
These new appliances bring with them three main benefits to achieve hyperscale network security:
- Highest Security Effectiveness –integrated with R80.30 and ThreatCloud setting a new standard of prevention against advanced 5th generation cyber attacks.
- State-of-the-Art SSL Inspection – Threat prevention that delivers lightning fast SSL-encrypted traffic inspection without compromising up time or scalability
- 1 Tera bps of Gen V Performance – Hyperscale ready, high performance threat prevention hardware for the fastest Gen V security gateway in the industry
Powered by the Check Point Infinity architecture, the 16000 and 26000 Security Gateways offer the industry’s best network threat prevention including Check Point’s ThreatCloud and award-winning SandBlast™ Zero-Day Protection. These modular gateways deliver up to 24 Gbps of Threat Prevention security throughput, support connectivity standards up to 100 Gbe, and feature expansion options for up to 64 network interfaces.
The Check Point 16000 and 26000 are a new generation of high performance Security Gateways for the enterprise market segment. With the new appliances, enterprise customers can enable advanced threat prevention and inspect for threats within TLS encrypted traffic.
Achieving 1 Terabit-per-second: Enter the Maestro Hyperscale Orchestrator
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 organizations 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 enterprises everywhere to achieve hyperscale network security with tera-bit levels of threat prevention performance.
