Check Point has launched a new version of its network security suite called Check Point R75, which is based on Software Blade Architecture.
According to the company, its new security offering implements elements of the Check Point 3D Security vision.
With 3D Security, corporations can now implement a blueprint for security that goes beyond technology to ensure the integrity of all information security.
Check Point R75 introduces four new software blades for Identity Awareness, Application Control, Data Loss Prevention, and Mobile Access.
The new R75 security suite enables businesses to gain visibility and control over data, Web 2.0 applications, and mobile access, while bringing organisations multi-dimensional security in a single, integrated offering, the company said.
New in Check Point R75 is Identity Awareness, a software blade that enables organizations to manage security policies by users and groups.
With Identity Awareness, organizations get better application and access control through the creation of accurate identity-based policies.
Also new is the Application Control Software Blade, which provides a combination of strong security technology, user awareness and broad application control.
Other new or updated Software Blades in Check Point R75 enable customers to easily implement 3D Security and customize their own Check Point R75 security gateway with critical protections.
Check Point Software Technologies vice president of products Dorit Dor said Check Point R75 enables customers to extend the firewall into a multi-functional and multi-dimensional gateway that consolidates protections into a single, unified solution – enabling usesr to enforce the security controls they need to respond to evolving needs and threats.
