Check Point extends UTM appliance product line to small businesses and branch offices

May 2009 Cyber Security

New Check Point UTM-1 130 delivers enterprise-class security with built-in centralised management in a convenient desk top form factor.

Check Point Software Technologies has announced the expansion of its UTM-1 Total Security appliance line with the addition of a new model, UTM-1 130, providing small businesses and branch offices an all-inclusive security gateway. The UTM-1 130 simplifies security by combining the industry’s leading firewall, virtual private network (VPN), intrusion prevention, anti-virus, anti-spyware, URL filtering, Web security and messaging security into one centrally-managed, turnkey solution.

When considering their security options, small businesses and branch offices face either deploying a solution outside their budget to achieve enterprise-class security or compromise their level of security by purchasing a less expensive solution. The UTM-1 130 appliance is ideal for small business and branch office environments of typically between five and 75 users that need a security appliance in desktop form factor.

“Our partners and customers have long requested to get the full Check Point software in a smaller package and at a lower price point to fit their small business and branch office locations,” said Dr Dorit Dor, vice president of products at Check Point. “Now businesses do not have to compromise and can benefit from the full value of Check Point solutions. The UTM-1 130 provides customers a proven, tightly integrated security solution that can be managed locally or remotely from a central location.”

As with other Check Point UTM-1 Total Security appliances, the UTM-1 130 delivers maximum security at high-performance levels, eliminating security as a network bottleneck and allowing customers more room to grow while maintaining optimal security. The UTM-1 130 minimises costs and simplifies operations with the same proven built-in centralised security management system used in Check Point enterprise-class solutions. In addition, each UTM-1 130 appliance includes complete security updates, hardware support and customer support for up to three years.

Check Point UTM-1 130 Total Security features and benefits include:

* All inclusive security including firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention, anti-virus, anti-spyware, URL filtering, Web security, and messaging security.

* High performance level of 400 Mbps for only $3500 in desktop form factor.

* Built in management allows for local administration, but the device can also be managed centrally with Check Points SmartCenter and Provider-1, simplifying deployment and streamlining security management of the office.

* Security updates enhance security levels and support for three years ensures longevity of the appliance.
