Check Point launched its new 21700 Appliance with 78 Gbps of firewall throughput, 25 Gbps of IPS throughput and a 2,922 SecurityPower unit (SPU) rating.

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. The 21700 Appliance increases performance and traffic volumes - delivering the highest power in a 2U form factor.

The appliance is a part of the 21000 appliance family, which supports the Security Acceleration Module, a hardware accelerator including SecurityCore technology and featuring 108 cores.

With the Security Acceleration Module, the 21700 Appliance delivers sub 5 micro-second firewall latency, and boosts firewall throughput to 110 Gbps, while providing ultra-fast VPN throughput and 3,551 SPUs. It is ideal for transaction-oriented environments.

Key features:
  • Maximum security and performance with 78 Gbps to 110 Gbps of firewall throughput.
  • High port density – includes up to 37 ports with a variety of NIC options including copper & fiber, 1GbE and 10GbE interfaces.
