Check Point Introduces Big Security For Small Businesses

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., the worldwide provider of internet security has launched its new 600 Appliances, delivering powerful Fortune 100 security to protect small businesses against the latest cyber attacks, including viruses, spam, malicious Websites, among others. The 600 Appliances provide an affordable, all-in-one security solution with good performance of 1.5 Gbps of firewall throughput and 37 SecurityPower units.

Cyber security is a growing challenge for small businesses. According to a new Verizon report, of the 621 confirmed data breaches studied, close to half occurred at companies with fewer than 1,000 employees, including 193 incidents at entities with fewer than 100 workers. Increasingly, cybercriminals are preying on small businesses as they lack the sophisticated security that larger businesses have.

Check Point’s 600 Appliances provide comprehensive security to ensure small business employees and data are protected at all times. The 600 Appliances come pre-loaded with enterprise-class capabilities, including firewall, VPN, intrusion prevention (IPS), anti-virus, anti-spam, application control, and URL filtering. Most notably, the 600 Appliances run the same next-generation firewall and threat prevention capabilities found on Check Point products used by all of the Fortune 100.

The 600 appliances are easy to set up and manage even by non-IT professionals. Flexible Web-based management options are offered through a simple and intuitive user interface. And with security policies pre-defined, small businesses can get their security up and running in a matter of minutes.

“Cyber attacks on small businesses are on the rise. It's no longer just the larger businesses that are being attacked, but companies with a hundred employees or less are also lucrative targets, and no business sector is immune,” said DoritDor, Vice President of Products at Check Point.

“With limited resources, small businesses are often not equipped to deal with the expert cybercriminal. The 600 Appliances solve this problem and offer small businesses an inexpensive, yet comprehensive security solution that provides secure access to critical resources anywhere anytime, while minimising the risk of a data breach.”

“Set to be a potential primary driver of the Indian economy, the SME segment in India is currently a large platform that is being exploited by cybercriminals with ease. What this segment is in dire need of is security solutions that are hassel-free and easy to manage, while providing the organisation with the most comprehensive security cover. Check Point’s new 600 appliances does just this and is also competitively priced. It is sure to add tremendous value to the SMEs and enhance business efficiency, said Bhaskar Bakthavatsalu, Regional Director – India & SAARC, Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.
