The Check Point 1550 Next Generation firewall is perfect for small and medium businesses that need a simple-to-use firewall. Especially one that’s straightforward to understand and operate.
Check Point’s focus is on preventing rather than detecting security threats. In other words, it blocks known and unknown cyber-attacks. This ensures business continuity. The Checkpoint 1550’s Advanced Threat Prevention comes with zero-day protection and next-generation firewall technologies. It includes application control, advanced URL filtering, IPS, antivirus, and anti-bot. In addition, there’s email security, policy management, monitoring and event management.
A Check Point’s strength is in it’s vast ability to be customized to your needs. They are not as plug-and-play as some others. But the fact is, that was never the intention with these firewalls. Check Points are devices you build around and customize into your environment.
And that customizability is the beauty of Checkpoint. You are rewarded with a great deal of granular visibility, control, and specialized security. In other words, you end up with exactly the firewall setup you need. And Checkpoint’s tech support can walk you through the process, to get you exactly where you want to be.
