The VSX security operations platform is a virtualized security gateway that enables the creation of hundreds of security systems on a single hardware platform, delivering deep cost savings and infrastructure consolidation. Based on the proven security of VPN-1 Power, VSX provides best in class firewall, VPN, URL filtering and intrusion prevention technology to multiple networks, securely connecting them to each other and shared resources such as the Internet and DMZs. All security systems, virtual and real, are centrally managed through Check Point SmartCenter or Provider-1 management consoles. Powerful turnkey VSX-1 appliances further reduce deployment cost while delivering carrier-class reliability and scalability.
VSX enables any organization to optimize space and costs by operating a virtual network of hundreds of routers, switches, and VPN-1 gateways. For MSPs, VSX becomes the ideal platform for new subscription revenue opportunities by delivering new security services easily and efficiently. These include value-add virtualized content filtering, VPN, network segmentation and firewall services, instantly provisioned using VSX's Virtual Systems Wizard at the lowest possible cost.
Scalable virtual environment
With VSX, deployed as VSX software or VSX-1 turnkey appliances, administrators can create virtualized implementations of conventional physical topologies and designs such as central and remote DMZs. The VSX platform can create and manage up to 250 fully independent security systems on a single or clustered hardware platform. This delivers scalability while dramatically reducing hardware investment, space requirements, and maintenance costs.
Flexible virtual connectivity
Virtual routers and switches can be used to forward traffic between networks located behind virtual systems, much in the same manner as their physical counterparts. VSX supports a wide range of routing scenarios, enabling flexible network connectivity.
High performance securityProduct Highlights
High bandwidth networks require high-performance gateways in order to support thousands of users and applications. VSX employs Check Point-patented SecureXL security acceleration, enabling maximum performance from open servers and appliances. To provide security at wire speed, VSX can be deployed on multiple carrier-class platforms using Check Point's high performance technology, ensuring secure, resilient, multi-gigabit throughput.
