Check Point 4600 Appliance

Today the enterprise gateway is more than a firewall. It is a security device presented with an ever-increasing number of sophisticated threats. As an enterprise 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 smartphones 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 appliances combine 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, each 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.

Each Check Point Appliance supports the Check Point 3D security vision of combining policies, people and enforcement for unbeatable protection and is optimized for enabling any combination of the following Software Blades: (1) Firewall, (2) VPN, (3) IPS, (4) Application Control, (5) Mobile Access, (6) DLP, (7) URL Filtering, (8) Antivirus, (9) Anti-spam, (10) Anti-Bot, (11) Identity Awareness and (12) Advanced Networking & Clustering.

Key Features:

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.

SecurityPower is a new benchmark that measures the capability and capacity of an appliance to perform multiple advanced security functions (Software Blades) such as IPS, DLP and Application Control in real world traffic conditions. This provides an effective metric to better predict the current and future behavior of appliances under security attacks and in day-to-day operations. Customer SecurityPower Unit (SPU) requirements, determined using the Check Point Appliance Selection Tool, can be matched to the SPU ratings of Check Point Appliances to select the right appliance for their specific requirements.

All-inclusive Security Solution
The Check Point 4600 Appliance offers a complete and consolidated security solution in a 1U form factor based on the Check Point Software Blade architecture. Available in three software packages of 7, 8 and 10 Blades, the platform provides up-to-date and extensible security protection.

  • Next Generation Firewall (NGFW): identify and control applications by user and scan content to stop threats—with IPS and Application Control.
  • Secure Web Gateway (SWG): enables secure use of Web 2.0 with real time multi-layered protection against web-borne malware—with Application Control, URL Filtering, Antivirus and SmartEvent.
  • Next Generation Data Protection (NGDP): preemptively protect sensitive information from unintentional loss, educate users on proper data handling policies and empower them to remediate incidents in real-time—with IPS, Application Control and DLP..
  • Next Generation Threat Prevention (NGTP): apply multiple layers of protection to prevent sophisticated cyber-threats— with IPS, Application Control, Antivirus, Anti-Bot, URL Filtering and Email Security.

Integrated Security Management
The appliance can either be managed locally with its available integrated security management or via central unified management. Using local management, the appliance can manage itself and one adjacent appliance for high availability purposes.

Remote Access Connectivity for Mobile Devices
Each appliance arrives with mobile access connectivity for 5 users, using the Mobile Access Blade. This license provides secure remote access to corporate resources from a wide variety of devices including smartphones, tablets, PCs, Mac and Linux.

GAiA - The Unified Security OS

Check Point GAiA™ is the next generation Secure Operating System for all Check Point appliances, open servers and virtualized gateways. GAiA combines the best features from IPSO and SecurePlatform into a single unified OS providing greater efficiency and robust performance. By upgrading to GAiA, customers will benefit from improved appliance connection capacity and reduced operating costs. With GAiA, customers will gain the ability to leverage the full breadth and power of all Check Point Software Blades. GAiA secures IPv4 and IPv6 networks utilizing the Check Point Acceleration & Clustering technology and it protects the most complex network environments by supporting dynamic routing protocols like RIP, OSPF, BGP, PIM (sparse and dense mode) and IGMP. As a 64-Bit OS, GAiA increases the connection capacity of select appliances.

GAiA simplifies management with segregation of duties by enabling role-based administrative access. Furthermore, GAiA greatly increases operation efficiency by offering Automatic Software Updates. The intuitive and feature-rich Web interface allows for instant search of any commands or properties. GAiA offers full compatibility with IPSO and SecurePlatform command line interfaces, making it an easy transition for existing Check Point customers.
