The Check Point 4800 Appliance offers a complete and consolidated security solution, with leading performance in a 1U form factor. In addition to eight onboard 1 Gigabit copper Ethernet ports, the 4800 also comes with an available expansion slot which provides the option to add four or eight 1 Gigabit copper Ethernet ports, two or four 1 Gigabit fiber Ethernet ports or two 10 Gigabit fiber Ethernet ports. With 623 SecurityPower Units, the 4800 appliance offers superior performance for its price range with a firewall throughput of 11 Gbps and IPS throughput of 6 Gbps.
Until today security appliance selection has been based upon selecting specific performance measurements for each security function, usually under optimal lab testing conditions and using a security policy that has one rule. Today customers can select security appliances by their SecurityPower ratings which are based on real-world customer traffic, multiple security functions and a typical security policy.
SecurityPower is a new benchmark that measures the capability and capacity of an appliance to perform multiple advanced security functions (Software Blades) such as IPS, DLP and Application Control in real world traffic conditions. This provides an effective metric to better predict the current and future behavior of appliances under security attacks and in day-to-day operations. Customer SecurityPower Unit (SPU) requirements, determined using the Check Point Appliance Selection Tool, can be matched to the SPU ratings of Check Point Appliances to select the right appliance for their specific requirements.
ALL-INCLUSIVE SECURITY SOLUTION
The Check Point 4800 Appliance offers a complete and consolidated security solution in a compact 1U chassis based on the Check Point Software Blade Architecture. Available with 4 software packages of 7, 8, 9 and 10 Blades, the platform provides up-to-date and extensible security protection.
INTEGRATED SECURITY MANAGEMENT
The appliance can either be managed locally with its available integrated security management or via central unified management. Using local management, the appliance can manage itself and one adjacent appliance for high availability purposes.
REMOTE ACCESS CONNECTIVITY FOR MOBILE DEVICES
Each appliance arrives with mobile access connectivity for 5 users, using the Mobile Access Blade. This license enables secure remote access to corporate resources from a wide variety of devices including smartphones, tablets, PCs, Mac and Linux.
REMOTE PLATFORM MANAGEMENT AND MONITORING
A Lights-Out-Management (LOM) interface provides out-of-band remote management to remotely diagnose, start, restart and manage the appliance from a remote location. Administrators can also use the LOM web interface to remotely install an OS image from an ISO file.
