Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. has launched the 21700 Appliance, which provides 78 Gbps of firewall throughput, 25 Gbps of IPS throughput and a 2,922 SecurityPower  unit (SPU) rating.

It also contains up to 37 ports with a variety of NIC options including copper and fiber, 1GbE and 10GbE interfaces.

Security gateways must have the ability to integrate multiple technologies, which can create greater strain and demand on network resources — requiring more bandwidth and processing power, CheckPoint said in a release.

“The new 21700 security gateway is optimized to deliver multi-layered protection in low-latency, transaction-oriented environments, while boosting firewall performance up to 110 Gbps of throughput,” said Paul Comessotti, Canadian Regional Director, Check Point Software Technologies.
