Security Gateway Software Blades

Why Software Blade Architecture?
The Check Point Software Blade Architecture delivers total, flexible and manageable security to your customers of any size. Check Point Software Blades deliver lower cost of ownership and cost-efficient protection that meets any network security or endpoint security need, today and in the future.

What is a Software Blade?
A Software Blade is a logical security building block that is independent, modular and centrally managed. Software Blades can be quickly enabled and configured into a solution based on specific business needs. And as needs evolve, additional blades can be quickly activated to extend security to an existing configuration within the same hardware foundation.

Key Benefits of the Check Point Software Blade Architecture
  Flexibility – Provides the right level of protection for your customers at the right level of investment
  Manageability – Enables fast deployment of security services. Increases productivity through centralized blade management.
  Total Security – Provides the right level of security, at all enforcement points, and at all layers of your customers’ network
  Lower TCO - Protects investment through consolidation and use of existing hardware infrastructure
  Guaranteed Performance – Enables provisioning of resources that guarantee service levels
How are Check Point Software Blades deployed?
Software Blades can be deployed on Check Point 2012 Models,UTM-1 and Power-1 security appliances, IP appliances, open servers, within virtualized environments, and on endpoints. New blades can be added simply by enabling their functionality in software; no additional hardware, firmware or drivers are necessary. This enables organizations to deploy security dynamically, as needed, with lower total cost of deployment.
