Check Point Software Technologies recently released the  Check Point 61000 security system, which the company says offers scalable performance for data centres, telecommunication and cloud service providers, with a multi-bladed hardware platform that is capable of  performance of more than 1Tbps in a single firewall.

According to the company, the new system supports 70 million concurrent connections and 600,000 sessions per second.

Check Point also introduced the R75.20 based on the Software Blade Architecture, a new data centre appliance, the Check Point 21400, and a new metric for security performance – SecurityPower.

The latter allows IT departments to estimate their security needs and compare it to the SecurityPower Units (SPU) rating of each security offering, thus improving the accuracy of performance measurements for appliances under security attack and during day-to-day operations, the company said.

“When it comes to protecting the most demanding network environments, security and performance are two critical factors that cannot be compromised,” said Paul Comessotti, Check Point’s Canadian regional director.
