To handle the increasing security complexity of their environment, IT administrators can now simplify management by segmenting security into virtual domains based on location, business unit or security function. The Multi-Domain Management software blades, based on proven Provider-1 technology, help administrators consolidate their security management while simultaneously preserving the independence of each domain. For example, businesses can centralize the configuration and management of their firewall, VPN, IPS and other security protections across domains while maintaining separation of duties across each security function with a granular role-based administration. In addition, through the Global Policy Software Blade, administrators can achieve better and stronger security by enforcing a common security baseline and sharing a common network topology across multiple domains.
“Check Point has led innovation in the security management market for close to two decades, helping organizations achieve greater operational efficiency and better overall security,” said Oded Gonda, vice president of network security at Check Point Software Technologies. “Today, we introduce a unique and flexible solution that further simplifies security while leveraging customers’ existing infrastructure, at an unbeatable price point for any businesses.”
Customers can easily deploy the Multi-Domain Management Software Blades into their current security management, simplifying IT administration and leveraging their existing infrastructure. With a single click of the mouse, organizations can expand their security management at any time, deploying new security domains for as little as $1,500 per Domain Software Blade. Check Point’s Multi-Domain Software Blades are also available as dedicated SMART-1 appliances for easy plug-and-play.
“The Multi-Domain Management blade has been critical to our success by giving us the ability to separate our environments by management function,” said Brian Clark, network engineer at Commonwealth Financial Network. “With this separation we are able to delegate responsibilities on a per function and user basis as our security administration policies change.”
“Our Software Blade architecture makes it easy for companies to consolidate their security management. With today’s newest software blades, it is now easy to segment this security management into virtual domain providing the benefits of consolidation while maintaining the flexibility needed for each domain,” concluded Gonda.
