By | February 28, 2006

Wick Hill announces the availability of the latest Check Point VPN-1 Edge integrated security appliance for branch offices. The unified threat management appliance now includes the world´s most advanced intrusion prevention and anti-virus to complement its firewall and VPN technologies.

This ensures that branch offices now have the same protection from worms and viruses as larger offices, making it simpler and more cost-effective for customers to connect and secure thousands of remote sites with the confidence that these sites will not become the weakest link in network security.

VPN-1 Edge is now also integrated with SmartDefense(tm) Services. By purchasing a SmartDefense Services subscription for VPN-1 Edge appliances, customers can receive new protections against the latest threats and apply them to all offices remotely from a single console. This dramatically reduces the cost of maintaining a secure distributed environment, resulting in tighter security throughout the network.

Ian Kilpatrick, chairman Wick Hill Group, commented: “This is the ideal solution for all our Check Point partners wanting to deliver Check Point´s firewall and intrusion prevention technology for their customers´ remote offices at a great price.”
