Quantum Security Gateways include SandBlast Network Zero-day Protection providing hyper-scalable and power-efficient protection out of the box against Gen V cyber threats, from branch offices to data centers
Check Point Software Technologies has announced the availability of its complete Quantum Security Gateways series, which deliver unprecedented protection, scalability, and ease of deployment and control for enterprises, from their branch offices to corporate data centers.
The coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic has forced enterprises to quickly expand support for remote connectivity and home working at an unprecedented scale. Recent research by Check Point showed that 71% of enterprise IT and security professionals globally reported an increase in security threats and attacks since the pandemic started, as criminals seek to exploit the remote working explosion, and 95% of respondents said they are facing added IT security challenges related to these changes. Organizations are focused on three key network and security requirements:
- Preventing even advanced, zero-day cyber-attacks before they impact the organization
- The ability to secure any type of network expansion or changes on demand
- Unified solutions that speed up operations and automate protection
Check Point’s range of new Quantum Security Gateways deliver an industry-leading combination of advanced security protections, with over 2x the performance and half the energy consumption of rival high-end appliances. All of the Quantum Security Gateway models are now bundled with Check Point’s award-winning SandBlast Zero Day Protection with more than 60 security services focused on threat prevention, out of the box. This includes a 100% block score for malware prevention for email and web, exploit resistance and post-infection catch rate, as seen in the NSS Labs’ recent Breach Prevention Systems (BPS) Group Test. They also feature lightning fast SSL-encrypted traffic inspection for maximum security. Key highlights of the Quantum Security Gateway range include:
- Hyperscale-ready with up to 1.5 Tera-bps of Threat Prevention Performance
- Latest CPU models
- Modularity and easy customization through multiple expansion slots
- 100% Enterprise Solid State Drives (SSD), second power supply unit, and lights-out management for optimum reliability and availability.
