Check Point Leader in Gartner Magic Quadrant
21st December 2011
Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd., the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced its position in the Leaders quadrant in Gartner's 2011 Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewalls. According to Gartner, the Leaders quadrant contains a mix of large and midsize vendors, with the common element of making products that are built for enterprise requirements. These requirements include a wide range of models, support for virtualization and virtual LANs, and a management and reporting capability that is designed for complex and high-volume environments, such as multitier administration and rules/policy minimization. NGFW capability is an important element as enterprises move away from having dedicated IPS appliances at their perimeter and remote locations.
Vendors in this quadrant lead the market in offering new safeguarding features, providing expert capability, rather than treating the firewall as a commodity, and having a good track record of avoiding vulnerabilities in their security products. Common characteristics include handling the highest throughput with minimal performance loss and options for hardware acceleration. With the proliferation of Web 2.0 and mobile computing technologies, the volume and sophistication of Internet threats has risen, making security more difficult for many businesses to manage. Check Point R75 offers organizations comprehensive security by integrating all of the critical software blade protections organizations need to safeguard their business in modern day IT environments, including: Firewall, VPN, Application Control, Intrusion Prevention, Identity Awareness, Data Loss Prevention, and Mobile Access. Check Point R75 reinforces the company's vision for 3D Security and delivers leading software blade protections that enable businesses to gain greater visibility and control over data, Web 2.0 applications, and mobile access -- bringing organizations multi-dimensional security in a single, integrated solution.
