Good news, bad news, good news

Virtualization saves space, power and money. It may even help to save polar bears and ice caps.

with Check Point VPN-1 VE™

This is unique and unprecedented as far as we know.

Do tell us if you know different.

Seasoned IT managers will be familiar with Check Point's well-deserved reputation for securing pubic and private network infrastructure all over the world. VMCo's embedding of this industrial strength security into its powerful, fully-supported appliances moves virtualization of enterprise-wide convincingly back onto "no-brainer" territory. Finance directors and spatially challenged, environmentally conscious datacentre manages can sleep a little easier. Reaction amongst polar bears may be harder to gauge.
