The 13500 Appliance delivers blazing-fast security performance with 23.6 Gbps of real-life firewall throughput, 5.7 Gbps of real-life IPS throughput and 3,200 SecurityPower(TM) unit (SPU) rating.
Organizations often face the dilemma of choosing between deploying comprehensive security protections and maximizing the performance of the network. The 13500 Appliance provides data centers with Check Point's most advanced security protections, without compromises in network performance.
In addition to implementing most modern hardware architecture, the 13500 Appliance leverages a wide spectrum of software optimizations and accelerations that in turn maximize hardware utilization. Check Point's multi-layer security protections, with four pre-defined security packages including Next Generation Firewall, Threat Prevention, Data Protection and Secure-Web Gateway are supported on the 13500 Appliance.
These security packages allow for protection consolidation per appliance, delivering better performance to protect organizations against Advanced Persistent Threats and other modern cyber-attacks.
