Check Point Software Technologies launched two new security gateways that extend the company's data center network security portfolio.

The new 13800 Appliance extends the 13000 line while the 21800 augments the 21000 Appliance family, the company said.

Data centers and enterprises demand high network performance and have growing needs for more bandwidth. They also require dynamic, multi-layer security to protect against new and evolving threats and attacks.

The 13800 offers protections and advanced performance, with up to 3,800 SecurityPower units (SPU) and 6.5 Gbps of real-life IPS throughput. The 21800 Appliance delivers up to 4,300 SPU and 7 Gbps of real-life IPS throughput, supplies the low latency required by the most demanding network environments, and provides high reliability and serviceability to minimize maintenance costs.

As part of Check Point's data center security gateway offerings, the 13800 and 21800 Appliances deliver Check Point's multi-layer security protection, with four pre-defined security packages including Next Generation Firewall, Threat Prevention, Data Protection and Secure Web Gateway, consolidating more security protection per appliance.
