What and Why of SecurityPower

security power iconWhen it comes to security, one cannot go by a one-size-fits-all product.  There are many products in numerous markets, all claiming to be the best and most suited to your needs. However, security, like everything else in the IT industry, has to be customized and adapted to suit specific needs.  This is where Check Point's SecurityPower comes in handy. It enables the customer to measure the actual power of security products and lets you choose the product that best suits your needs.  It will measure the security application by its various security functions, its ability to handle network traffic in real world and in real-time and its security policies. This is the metric used by SecurityPower and will enable companies to choose wisely and plan effectively to get maximum security.

Previously there was only one criteria used in choosing the right security tool, and that was the firewall throughput, which is measuring the amount of gigabits of data that can pass through it in one second.  The lab conditions under which the tool was to be tested only used broad policies like allowing all traffic and synthetically blending traffic. This did not allow for specific situations as seen in businesses where the different environments will bring with it different security risks.  Although the lab test results were brilliant, they failed to show the tool’s ability to effectively protect the business in the required way.  However, you can use Check Point's SecurityPower to measure accurately as it uses actual existing conditions.  

Check Point’s model  ‘61000’ can scale up to 1 Tbps of throughput easily and therefore is the perfect tool for large-scale enterprises, data centers, and cloud providers where a large amount of data is handled on a daily basis.  It is also the fastest security gateway seen in the market and also has a high network capacity.  The 21400 model is also a good one with the capacity to scale around 100 Gbps.  Using this technology, a business will even be able to measure what it needs in the future and plan accordingly so that they can save on future investments.
