Check Point has announced the launch of its new Security Gateway Module (SGM) 260 for its high-end 61000 Security System. Developed to bring cutting-edge security with scalable performance to data centres, telecommunications and cloud service providers, the 61000 is the industry’s fastest security system. The SGM260 blade takes that performance to a new level, doubling firewall and IPS aggregated throughput to up to 400Gbps and 130Gbps respectively.

“Both protection and performance are equally critical to securing today’s high-performance network environments,” said Gabi Reish, vice president of product management at Check Point Software Technologies. “The SGM260 blade on our high-end 61000 security system delivers the power, extensibility and performance needed to protect the data centres of the future.”

The SGM260 blade has the highest port density of any security gateway, allowing for more segmentation and performance. This in turn gives organisations greater flexibility to deploy Check Point’s advanced security technologies based on their network needs. Check Point’s award-winning Software Blade Architecture enables the deployment of any combination of multi-layered protections, including: Firewall, VPN, IPS, Application Control, Identity Awareness, URL Filtering, Anti-spam, Antivirus, Anti-Bot, Data Loss Prevention, Mobile Access and Threat Emulation.

Key features of the SGM260 include:

- Up to 400 Gbps of firewall and up to 130 Gbps IPS throughput
- Connection capacity of over 200 million concurrent connections
- Enhanced large scale data centre and private cloud connectivity with up to 60x10GbE and up to 8x40GbE port density
- Smooth performance scaling process with “zero downtime” when adding SGM260 blades to existing 61000 chassis
