The Check Point Software Blade Architecture is the first and only security architecture that delivers total, flexible and manageable security to companies of any size. It enables organizations to easily and efficiently tailor their network security infrastructure to meet critical and targeted business security needs - all while maintaining network performance service level agreements (SLAs). What's more, as threats and needs emerge, Check Point's Software Blade Architecture quickly and flexibly extends security services on-demand - without the addition of hardware or management complexity. This solution is centrally managed through a single console that reduces complexity and operational overhead.
Check Point Software Blades deliver lower total cost-of-ownership (TCO), faster return-on-investment (ROI), and cost-efficient protection to meet any network security need -today and in the future.
A Software Blade is a security building block that is independent, modular and centrally managed - allowing organizations to customize a security configuration that targets the right mix of protection and investment. Software Blades can be quickly enabled and configured on any gateway or management system with a simple click of a mouse - no hardware, firmware, or driver upgrades required. And as needs evolve, additional software blades can be easily activated to extend security to an existing configuration on the same security hardware.
There's no need to cobble together different solutions from various vendors because the Check Point Software Blade Architecture is a comprehensive solution comprised of best-of-breed technologies for both security gateway and management functionality. It provides the right level of security at all enforcement points and network layers, which effectively reduces the risk of exposure to security threats.
When organizational needs change, Check Point offers the ultimate flexibility, as all Software Blades can be easily activated or transferred from one hardware platform to another. Because Software Blades are completely portable, organizations can easily.
It's simple to activate security functions via the central Software Blade management system. This capability reduces the number of administrative tasks associated with updating, monitoring, event analysis, and reporting.
