Check Point's VPN Software Blade is an integrated software solution that provides secure connectivity to corporate networks, remote and mobile users, branch offices and business partners. The blade integrates access control, authentication and encryption to guarantee the security of network connections over the public Internet.
Simplified site-to-site VPN
The IPsec Software Blade provides a unified method to create and manage complex VPNs. The SmartDashboard enables administrators to define participating gateways - including third-party gateways - in large-scale VPNs. VPN gateways can be configured for both star and mesh topologies in minutes with an integrated certificate authority to manage keys.
Multiple VPN creation methods
Route-based VPNs - administrators define what traffic should be encrypted by VPN rules, enabling the creation of complex large-scale site-to-site VPNs in dynamic environments. Route-based VPNs also support the extension of dynamic routing and multicast communities across VPNs. Domain-based VPNs - administrators define which resources behind the gateway should have encrypted VPN traffic.
Enhanced IPsec VPN securityProduct Highlights
A key element in Check Point's philosophy is that VPN connectivity must be matched with a high level of security. The IPsec Software Blade enables you to connect remote users, sites, and partners without worrying that your VPN will become a network backdoor. At your discretion, the IPsec blade can apply the entire security policy to encrypted traffic, a subset of traffic, or allow VPN traffic to enter uninspected.
