Today the enterprise gateway is more than a firewall. It is a security device presented with an ever-increasing number of sophisticated threats. As an enterprise security gateway it must use multiple technologies to control network access, detect sophisticated attacks and provide additional security capabilities like data loss prevention and protection from web-based threats. The proliferation of mobile devices like smartphones and Tablets and new streaming, social networking and P2P applications requires a higher connection capacity and new application control technologies. Finally, the shift towards enterprise private and public cloud services, in all its variations, changes the company borders and requires enhanced capacity and additional security solutions.

Check Point's new appliances combine fast networking technologies with high performance multi-core capabilities-providing the highest level of security without compromising on network speeds to keep your data, network and employees secure. Optimized for the Software Blades Architecture, each appliance is capable of running any combination of Software Blades-providing the flexibility and the precise level of security for any business at every network location by consolidating multiple security technologies into a single integrated solution.

Each Check Point Appliance supports the Check Point 3D security vision of combining policies, people and enforcement for unbeatable protection. To address evolving securityneeds, Check Point offers Next Generation Security packages of Software Blades

focused on specific customer requirements. Threat Prevention, Data Protection, Web Security and Next Generation Firewall technologies are key foundations for a robust 3D Security blueprint.

Check Point 12400 Appliance

With high security Software Blades performance and great scalability, the 12400 Appliance is a datacenter-grade platform offering advanced redundancy and modularity. In addition to two onboard 1 Gigabit copper Ethernet ports, three available expansion slots can be used to configure a variety of network options such as 1 Gigabit Ethernet copper, 1 Gigabit Ethernet fiber, and 10 Gigabit Ethernet fiber connections.

The 12400 default configuration includes an eight 1 Gigabit Ethernet copper expansion card. Fully loaded, the 12400 supports up to twenty-six 1 Gigabit Ethernet ports or twelve10 Gigabit Ethernet ports.

Key Features:


Until today security appliance selection has been based upon selecting specific performance measurements for each security function, usually under optimal lab testing conditions and using a security policy that has one rule. Today customers can select security appliances by their SecurityPower ratings which are based on real-world customer traffic, multiple security functions and a typical security policy.

SecurityPower is a new benchmark that measures the capability and capacity of an appliance to perform multiple advanced security functions (Software Blades) such as IPS, DLP and Application Control in real world traffic conditions. This provides an effective metric to better predict the current and future behavior of appliances under security attacks and in day-to-day operations. Customer SecurityPower Unit (SPU) requirements, determined using the Check Point Appliance Selection Tool, can be matched to the SPU ratings of Check Point Appliances to select the right appliance for their specific requirements.

Business Continuity, Reliability and Extensibility

The Check Point 12400 appliance delivers business continuity and serviceability through features such as hot-swappable redundant power supplies, hot-swappable redundant hard disk drives (RAID) and an advanced LOM card for out-of-band management. Combined together, these features ensure a greater degree of business continuity and serviceability when these appliances are deployed in customer networks.

All-inclusive Security Solutions

The Check Point 12400 Appliance offers a complete and consolidated security solution based on the Check Point Software Blade architecture. The appliance is available in four Software Blade packages and extensible to include additional Software Blades for further security protection.

  • Next Generation Firewall (NGFW): identify and control applications by user and scan content to stop threats-with IPS and Application Control.
  • Next Generation Secure Web Gateway (SWG): enables secure use of Web 2.0 with real time multi-layered protection against web-borne malware-with Application Control, URL Filtering, Antivirus and SmartEvent.
  • Next Generation Data Protection (NGDP): preemptively protect sensitive information from unintentional loss, educate users on proper data handling policies and empower them to remediate incidents in real-time-with IPS, Application Control and DLP.
  • Next Generation Threat Prevention (NGTP): apply multiple layers of protection to prevent sophisticated cyber-threats- with IPS, Application Control, Antivirus, Anti-Bot, URL Filtering and Email Security.

Prevent Unknown Threats With Threatcloud Emulation

Check Point Appliances are a key component in the ThreatCloud Ecosystem providing excellent protection from undiscovered exploits, zero-day and targeted attacks. Appliances inspect and send suspicious files to the ThreatCloud Emulation Service which runs them in a virtual sandbox to discover malicious behavior. Discovered malware is prevented from entering the network. A signature is created and sent to the ThreatCloud which shares information on the newly identified threat to protect other Check Point customers.

Integrated Security Management

The appliance can either be managed locally with its available integrated security management or via central unified management. Using local management, the appliance can manage itself and one adjacent appliance for high availability purposes.

Remote Access Connectivity For Mobile Devices

Each appliance arrives with mobile access connectivity for 5 users, using the Mobile Access Blade. This license will provide secure remote access to corporate resources from a wide variety of devices including smartphones, tablets, PCs, Mac and Linux.

Remote Platform Management And Monitoring

A Lights-Out-Management (LOM) card provides out-of-band remote management to remotely diagnose, start, restart and manage the appliance from a remote location. Administrators can also use the LOM web interface to remotely install an OS image from an ISO file.

GAiA-The Unified Security OS

Check Point GAiA is the next generation Secure Operating System for all Check Point appliances, open servers and virtualized gateways. GAiA combines the best features from IPSO and SecurePlatform into a single unified OS providing greater efficiency and robust performance. By upgrading to GAiA, customers will benefit from improved appliance connection capacity and reduced operating costs. With GAiA, customers will gain the ability to leverage the full breadth and power of all Check Point Software Blades. GAiA secures IPv4 and IPv6 networks utilizing the Check Point Acceleration & Clustering technology and it protects the most complex network environments by supporting dynamic routing protocols like RIP, OSPF, BGP, PIM (sparse and dense mode) and IGMP. As a 64-Bit OS, GAiA increases the connection capacity of select appliances. ™

GAiA simplifies management with segregation of duties by enabling role-based administrative access. Furthermore, GAiA greatly increases operation efficiency by offering Automatic Software Updates. The intuitive and feature-rich Web interface allows for instant search of any commands or properties. GAiA offers full compatibility with IPSO and SecurePlatform command line interfaces, making it an easy transition for existing Check Point customers.
