Calgary based Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. this week announced the new Security Gateway Virtual Edition  (VE) with VMsafe integration that the firm says secures the cloud with an advanced firewall and protects dynamic virtual environments from both internal and external security threats.

 

Gateway VE is based on Check Point’s Software Blade Architecture, enabling businesses to leverage the same security features available on physical networks — including Firewall, VPN and intrusion prevention — to meet the special security, networking and management needs of virtual environments.  

 

“Protecting the network from external threats and inspecting traffic in between virtual machines are the two primary challenges associated with securing virtual environments,”  said Paul Comessotti, Check Point’s Canadian country manager.
