An Unmatched, Integrated Security Platform
The X-Series platform coupled with the Check Point Security Gateway provides unsurpassed performance
for today’s best-of-breed security software applications. Whether deployed as a Check Point only solution or
utilized with other security applications provided by different Partners, the X-Series platform delivers unmatched
consolidation, adaptability, availability and operational efficiency.
CHECK POINT SECURITY GATEWAY
The Check Point Software Blade architecture supports a complete and
increasing selection of Software Blades, each delivering a modular
security gateway or security management function. As Software Blades
are modular and flexible, they enable organizations to efficiently and
quickly tailor security application functionality to specific and changing
security needs. New software blades are easily added and licensed as
needed without the addition of new hardware.
• Combine best-of-breed software security applications with industryleading consolidation, adaptability, availability and operational
• Implement a Check Point only solution or integrate Check Point
applications with other Blue Coat partner applications
• Support multiple instances of Check Point applications via VSX to
create hundreds of individual security systems on a single blade
Check Point Security Gateway on the X-Series Platform
Combining the Check Point software and blade architecture with the
Blue Coat integrated application platform provides an unmatched,
extensible solution that is trusted by large enterprises and service
providers around the world. The software blade or virtualized software
blade approach allows customers to choose from multiple Check Point
applications, increasing flexibility of security services. The integration of
the X-Series Platform with the Check Point Software Blade Architecture
results in a unique and powerful solution that helps organizations:
• Simplify datacenter complexity through the consolidation of
numerous, disparate appliances onto a single X-Series system.
• Deliver an extensible solution that readily adapts to the ever-changing
security demands on business.
• Achieve unsurpassed reliability and stability of critical communications
that meet tomorrow’s growing business uptime demands.
• Improve operational efficiency while reducing the management and
maintenance demands and costs within datacenter environments.
• Protect business critical assets while maintaining the highest network
In support of simplifying the customer experience, Blue Coat has
expanded its relationship with Check Point to directly sell the X-Series
product line when deploying Check Point software. Customers now
have a single, trusted partner for sales, application integration and
support. The Check Point X-Series Platform is available to organizations
worldwide starting in 2014.
Blue Coat and Check Point reduce complexity by consolidating firewall
appliances with associated networking equipment into one adaptable
platform. Up to 100 network and firewall devices can be consolidated
within one X-Series platform, reducing time, operating costs, energy
consumption, and complexity. Coping with more than 100 million
concurrent firewall sessions, 600,000+ new stateful connections per
second, and a real-world firewall throughput of 140Gbps, the X-Series
delivers the performance needed by the most demanding environments.
CHECK POINT SECURITY GATEWAY
ON THE X-SERIES PLATFORM
Many organizations do not have a clear view of what changes will occur
in the future regarding performance or security requirements. The only
thing that is certain is there will be change. The X-Series platform enables
Check Point application acceleration, virtualization and optimization to
better meet the growing demands of today’s businesses, without having
to re-architect the physical network. Whether deployed as a Check Pointonly security application platform or as a multiple-application platform
comprised of Check Point and other complementary Blue Coat Partner
technologies, the end result is a powerful, reliable, high-performance
solution that readily adapts to the organization’s security needs. This
flexibility assures that the X-Series platform will continue supporting their
business needs for many years to come.
The uptime demands on the network have never been higher and
gone are the days when scheduled downtime was acceptable. Many
many organizations strive for zero-downtime network environments.
The X-Series solution provides adaptive self-healing through patented
technology, which uses dynamic back-up modules or prioritization to
assure key security applications remain functioning at full capacity
if a module becomes unavailable. The X-Series combines superior
networking, exceptional processing, and an open application
architecture, to eliminate network and firewall outages.
IT organizations are tasked to do more with less. The X-Series solution
minimizes the number of devices required to secure today’s fastest,
most demanding networks by reducing the number of Layer 2 switches,
load balancers, patch panels, cabling and power. The X-Series
management capabilities streamline configuration and provide visibility
into the entire solution; from individual chassis, to specific modules, to
traffic flows and applications. This readily provides organizations with
the appropriate information needed to effectively and quickly make
decisions about maintaining their security infrastructure and protecting
their business. Overall, the X-Series platform enables IT organizations to
secure and run their businesses more proficiently with lower CapEx and
