Check Point has announced the release of the Check Point 1400, 3000 and 5000 Series appliances. These new threat-prevention optimized appliances give organizations of any size, from small businesses to large-scale deployments, advanced threat prevention capabilities such as full inspection of encrypted data, without compromising performance.

In 2015, organizations globally saw a 38% increase in security incidents compared to 2014, and data theft incidents rose by 56%, with all sizes of business from SMBs to large enterprises experiencing similar numbers of incidents. This growing frequency of cyberattacks, particularly with unknown signatures, increases the risk of a successful attack and requires a shift in strategy – from detection to prevention.

To ensure maximum security and meet these new demands of the businesses they support, security professionals need solutions that will efficiently scale. As such, these new appliances allow customers to:

• Enable the most complete, advanced threat prevention against known and unknown threats within a powerful platform. All of the new appliances feature fully integrated firewall, IPS, anti-bot, antivirus, application controls, URL filtering and the award-winning sandboxing technology Check Point SandBlast Zero-Day Protection.

• Effectively meet the increasing requirements to deliver full inspection of SSL encrypted traffic. Innovative hardware design ensures full SSL inspection, with optimum performance, even with all threat prevention features activated.

• Easily accommodate requirements for network growth and connectivity. Flexible network connectivity options from 1GbE to 40GbE, acceleration cards and a complete portfolio of appliances enabling the best fit for any size of deployment, from SMB to enterprise campuses and carrier-class customers.

“Offering a full range of solutions that delivers the most advanced threat prevention and consistent security technologies for all of our locations elevates our value proposition,” said Trevor Rowley, Managing Director at Optix Software Ltd. “Check Point’s new series of appliances gives us the ability to deploy enterprise-grade protections that meet all of our security needs, with the ability to seamlessly scale as they grow.”

The new appliances are designed to protect business of all sizes, specifically:
• 1400 Series – The 1400 Series appliances are ideal for small businesses and branch offices. These appliances include a simple web user interface for setup and the ability to be controlled centrally in very large scale deployments.
• 3000 & 5000 Series – Both the 3000 and 5000 Series appliances are ideal for small to mid-size enterprise sites, providing the power to run the most comprehensive threat prevention capabilities – including full inspection of encrypted data – with a modular networking scheme.

“Growth in SSL encrypted network traffic is increasing the demand on security solutions to do full inspection of encrypted data, which can significantly degrade throughput,” said Gabi Reish, vice president of product management, Check Point. “With these new appliances, virtually any size organization can deploy the most advanced threat prevention to block attacks in a scalable, easy to manage manner – without compromising throughput.”
