Check Point introduced Check Point Maestro, the industry’s first truly hyperscale network security solution. Check Point Maestro enables businesses of any size to enjoy the power of flexible cloud-level security platforms, and to seamlessly expand their existing security gateways to hyperscale capacity.
“Today’s threat landscape is evolving at a rapid rate. That means businesses must turn to agile cybersecurity platforms that can scale very quickly, Check Point’s solutions continue to evolve with today’s threat landscape in order to meet the needs of enterprises, with capabilities that will combat zero-day attacks while limiting disruption to day-to-day business practices.” Said Jon Oltsik, Senior Principal Analyst, Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG).
Organizations can easily scale up their existing Check Point security gateways on demand, in the same way as spinning up new servers and compute resources in public clouds. Maestro enables a single gateway to expand to the capacity and performance of 52 gateways in minutes, giving companies elastic flexibility and enabling massive Terabit/second firewall throughput.
“Check Point Maestro extends the Gen V security capabilities of our Infinity architecture into hyperscale environments. It ensures organizations can secure their dynamic, evolving environments without limits, now and in the future, The principle behind Maestro is very simple: it enables organizations to start with their existing security implementations, no matter how small, and scale their protection almost infinitely according to their changing business needs” said Itai Greenberg, VP of Product Management, Check Point.
