Check Point Extends Security to Protect Virtualization Applications
New Check Point VPN-1 VE - A Secure Way to Protect Applications within Virtualization Environments

Check Point announced VPN-1 Virtual Edition (VE), which delivers the same best-of-class security for virtual applications that Fortune 500 companies depend on to secure their corporate networks and data centers. Check Point is a company that provides unified security management for both physical networks and virtual applications.

Virtualization of multiple servers into a single appliance creates an entirely new type of environment that requires new ways to protect segregated applications and information from one another without the use of physical security appliances. Check Point’s VPN-1 VE restores the separation and security of applications as if they were still located on separate servers. VPN-1 VE also integrates completely into a customer’s overall Check Point security infrastructure, making it possible to manage Check Point appliances and software for open servers, “Secured by Check Point” appliances and VPN-1 VE from a single interface -- reducing the cost and strain of management.

“Virtual systems are part of the overall network and need to be protected with the same level of security provided for physical appliances,” said Ofer Raz, director of platforms and infrastructure at Check Point. “VPN-1 VE demonstrates Check Point’s commitment to protecting corporations as new technologies enter the network. Check Point’s open architecture provides customers with unparalleled, centrally managed security across both physical networks and virtual environments.”

VPN-1 VE provides businesses and organizations numerous benefits, including:

  • Secures virtual environments with a preconfigured solution that is tailored for VMware ESX or ESXi environments to help ensure an easy, optimal deployment
  • Eliminates the need for additional security appliances to protect virtual applications, thereby lowering costs
  • Integrates with the same unified interface as other Check Point security gateways
  • Strengthens auditing, compliance and risk management with unified logging for the entire security infrastructure, including virtual environments
  • Enables quick deployment for provisioning or disaster recovery

“Check Point customers can deploy the VPN-1 VE with confidence, knowing that it is optimized for VMware environments,” said William Shelton, director of emerging products and solutions at VMware. “We welcome Check Point’s contribution to the more than 800 virtual appliances currently available from the VMware virtual appliance marketplace.”
