Check point Launches Mae­stro: the In­dus­try’s First hyper-scale Net­work Se­cu­rity So­lu­tion

Voice&Data - - NEWS BYTES -

Check Point Soft­ware Tech­nolo­gies Ltd. has in­tro­duced Check Point Mae­stro, the in­dus­try’s first truly hy­per­scale net­work se­cu­rity so­lu­tion. Check Point Mae­stro is a rev­o­lu­tion­ary new ar­chi­tec­ture that en­ables busi­nesses of any size to en­joy the power of flex­i­ble cloud-level se­cu­rity plat­forms, and to seam­lessly ex­pand their ex­ist­ing se­cu­rity gate­ways to hy­per­scale ca­pac­ity.

“To­day’s threat land­scape is evolv­ing at a rapid rate. That means busi­nesses must turn to ag­ile cy­ber­se­cu­rity plat­forms that can scale very quickly.” Said Jon Olt­sik, Se­nior Prin­ci­pal An­a­lyst from the En­ter­prise Strat­egy Group (ESG). “Check Point’s so­lu­tions con­tinue to evolve with to­day’s threat land­scape in or­der to meet the needs of en­ter­prises, with ca­pa­bil­i­ties that will com­bat zero-day at­tacks while lim­it­ing dis­rup­tion to day-to-day busi­ness prac­tices.”

With Check Point Mae­stro, or­ga­ni­za­tions can eas­ily scale up their ex­ist­ing Check Point se­cu­rity gate­ways on de­mand, in the same way as spin­ning up new servers and com­pute re­sources in pub­lic clouds. Mae­stro en­ables a sin­gle gate­way to ex­pand to the ca­pac­ity and per­for­mance of 52 gate­ways in min­utes, giv­ing com­pa­nies elas­tic flex­i­bil­ity and en­abling mas­sive Ter­abit/sec­ond fire­wall through­put. This al­most lim­it­less scal­a­bil­ity en­ables or­ga­ni­za­tions to sup­port 5G net­works’ high data rates and ul­tra-low la­tency, and se­cure the largest, most re­source­hun­gry en­vi­ron­ments, set­ting new stan­dards in hy­per­scale net­work se­cu­rity.

“Check Point Mae­stro ex­tends the Gen V se­cu­rity ca­pa­bil­i­ties of our In­fin­ity ar­chi­tec­ture into hy­per­scale en­vi­ron­ments. It en­sures or­ga­ni­za­tions can se­cure their dy­namic, evolv­ing en­vi­ron­ments with­out lim­its, now and in the fu­ture,” said Itai Green­berg, VP of Prod­uct Man­age­ment at Check Point. “The prin­ci­ple be­hind Mae­stro is very sim­ple: it en­ables or­ga­ni­za­tions to star t with their ex­ist­ing se­cu­rity im­ple­men­ta­tions, no mat­ter how small, and scale their pro­tec­tion al­most in­fin­itely ac­cord­ing to their chang­ing busi­ness needs.”

Check point Mae­stro de­liv­ers ad­vanced new ca­pa­bil­i­ties: • hy­per­scale se­cu­rity: cus­tomers can scale up their ex­ist­ing gate­ways of any size on-de­mand, to sup­port over 50x their orig­i­nal through­put, within min­utes. It gives seam­less ex­pan­sion to hy­per­scale se­cu­rity, while pro­tect­ing or­ga­ni­za­tions’ ex­ist­ing in­vest­ments.

• Cloud-level re­siliency: Mae­stro is the only uni­fied se­cu­rity sys­tem that can of­fer cloud-level re­silience and re­li­a­bil­ity to all or­ga­ni­za­tions’ deployment­s, with Check Point’s Hyper­Sync giv­ing ad­vanced telco-grade clus­ter­ing and full re­dun­dancy.

• Op­er­a­tional supremacy: It is man­aged in­tu­itively by Mae­stro Se­cu­rity Orches­tra­tor, which con­trols all of an or­ga­ni­za­tion’s gate­ways as one uni­fied se­cu­rity sys­tem, min­i­miz­ing man­age­ment over­head. New 6500 and 6800 se­cu­rity gate­ways give mega-scal­a­bil­ity The new 6500 and 6800 se­cu­rity ap­pli­ances set new stan­dards of pro­tec­tion against the most ad­vanced fifth-gen­er­a­tion threats tar­get­ing mid-size and larger en­ter­prise net­works, while of­fer­ing un­prece­dented scal­a­bil­ity. Com­bin­ing Check Point’s award­win­ning Threat Preven­tion suite with SandBlast Zero-Day pro­tec­tion, with pur­pose-built hard­ware, the 6500 and 6800 gate­ways de­liver the power to in­spect SSL-en­crypted net­work traf­fic with­out com­pro­mis­ing on per­for­mance or up­time.

The gate­ways of­fer un­ri­valled per­for­mance. The 6500 gives 20Gbps raw fire­wall band­width, and 3.4Gbps of threat preven­tion out­put. The 6800 gives 42Gbps raw fire­wall band­width and 9Gbps threat preven­tion out­put. They sup­port con­nec­tiv­ity up to 40GbE and fea­ture SSD and Dual SSD stor­age op­tions in a 1U chas­sis.

“The new 6000 se­ries gate­ways rein­vent the mid-range se­cu­rity ap­pli­ance, giv­ing best-in-class pro­tec­tion against the most ad­vanced threats, and al­most in­fi­nite scal­a­bil­ity,” said Itai Green­berg. “They con­sol­i­date threat preven­tion, em­u­la­tion, and ex­trac­tion into a sin­gle high-per­for­mance plat­form that will meet cus­tomers’ needs both now and into the fu­ture.”

Check Point Mae­stro and the new 6000 se­ries Se­cu­rity Gate­ways were un­veiled at CPX 360 in Bangkok, Check Point’s an­nual cy­ber-se­cu­rity sum­mit and expo for cus­tomers and part­ners. CPX 360 is ded­i­cated to ad­dress­ing to­day’s most press­ing cy­ber se­cu­rity chal­lenges and help­ing cus­tomers of all sizes de­velop strate­gies to stay one step ahead of new and emerg­ing cy­ber threats and so­phis­ti­cated hack­ers.

Mae­stro and the new 6000 se­ries Se­cu­rity Gate­ways will be avail­able from 1st of Fe­bru­ary 2019.
