Check Point 21700 High Availability Firewall
Check Point 21700 Appliance
Today's firewall is a security device presented with an ever-increasing number of
sophisticated threats. As a security gateway it must use multiple technologies to
control network access, detect sophisticated attacks and provide additional security capabilities like data loss prevention and protection from web-based threats. The proliferation of mobile devices like iPhones and Tablets and new streaming, social networking and P2P applications requires a higher connection capacity and new application control technologies. Finally, the shift towards enterprise private and public cloud services, in all its variations, changes the company borders and requires enhanced capacity and additional security solutions.
Check Point's new 21700 Appliance combines fast networking technologies with high performance multi-core capabilities-providing the highest level of security without compromising on network speeds to keep your data, network and employees secure. Optimized for the Software Blades Architecture, the appliance is capable of running any combination of Software Blades-providing the flexibility and the precise level of security for any business at every network location by consolidating multiple security technologies into a single integrated solution.
The 21700 Appliance supports the Check Point 3D security vision of combining
policies, people and enforcement for unbeatable protection. To address evolving
security needs, Check Point offers Next Generation Security packages of Software
Blades focused on specific customer requirements. Threat Prevention, Data
Protection, Web Security and Next Generation Firewall technologies are key
foundations for a robust 3D Security blueprint.
Leveraging its multi-core and acceleration technologies, with 3551 SecurityPower
Units, the Check Point 21700 appliance supports lightning fast firewall throughput
of up-to 110 Gbps1 with sub 5µs latency. The 21700 is designed from the ground up for unmatched flexibility for even the most demanding enterprise and data center network environments.
The 21700 appliance has 3 expansion slots supporting a wide range of network
options. The standard configuration includes one on-board 10/100/1000 RJ-45
Management port and a twelve 1 Gigabit Ethernet copper port card. In addition the 21700 Appliance includes an on-board 10GbE Sync port (SR transceiver included). A maximally configured 21700 provides up to 37 Gigabit Ethernet copper ports or 36 fiber ports or thirteen 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber ports.
Furthermore, the 21700 also has a slot for an optional Security Acceleration Module. In addition to hot-swappable redundant disk drives and power supply units, the 21700 appliance also supports Lights-Out-Management (LOM) for remote support and maintenance capabilities. The 21700 Appliance is a highly
serviceable chassis. Access to all components is easily available from the front and the back of the unit when mounted in the rack.
Until today security appliance selection has been based upon selecting specific performance measurements for each security function, usually under optimal lab testing conditions and using a security policy that has one rule. Today customers can select security appliances by their SecurityPower ratings which are based on real-world customer traffic, multiple security functions and a typical security policy.
