Check Point Software Technologies today announced VPN-1 Virtual Edition (VE) and claims it is the first company to provide unified security management for both physical networks and virtual applications.
Virtualization of multiple servers into a single appliance creates an entirely new type of environment that requires new ways to protect segregated applications and information from one another without the use of physical security appliances. Check Point’s VPN-1 VE restores the separation and security of applications as if they were still located on separate servers. VPN-1 VE also integrates completely into a customer’s overall Check Point security infrastructure, making it possible to manage Check Point appliances and software for open servers, “Secured by Check Point” appliances and VPN-1 VE from a single interface — reducing the cost and strain of management.
Check Point lists the following benefits for VPN-1 VE:
Check Point VPN-1 VE is available immediately and can be purchased through the Check Point worldwide network of VARs as well as from VMware directly. Pricing can be consulted here.
