Check Point Launches Security Line for Virtual Applications


Check Point Software Technologies announced VPN-1 Virtual Edition (VE), which delivers security for virtual applications.

VPN-1 VE restores the separation and security of applications as if they were still located on separate servers. It also integrates into a customer's overall Check Point security infrastructure, making it possible to manage Check Point-powered security applications and hardware from a single interface.

VPN-1 VE secures virtual environments with a preconfigured solution that is tailored for VMware ESX or ESXi environments to help ease deployment. It eliminates the need for additional security appliances to protect virtual applications. And it provides for unified logging for the entire security infrastructure, thereby addressing auditing, compliance, and risk management needs.

Pricing for Check Point VPN-1 VE starts at $7,500.
