Big security for small business

Check Point Software Technologies has launched its new 600 Appliances solution, delivering a security solution to protect small businesses against the latest cyber attacks.

Cyber security is a growing challenge for small businesses. Increasingly, cybercriminals are preying on small businesses as they lack the sophisticated security that larger businesses have. According to a new Verizon report, of the 621 confirmed data breaches studied, close to half occurred at companies with fewer than 1 000 employees, including 193 incidents at entities with fewer than 100 workers.

The 600 Appliances provide an affordable, all-in-one security solution with market leading performance of 1.5 Gbps of firewall throughput and 37 SecurityPower units.

¬°¬ßCyber attacks on small businesses in South Africa are on the rise. It’s no longer just the larger businesses that are being attacked, but companies with a hundred employees or less are also lucrative targets, and no business sector is immune,¬°¬® says Doros Hadjizenonos, sales manager at Check Point South Africa.

¡§With limited resources, small businesses are often not equipped to deal with the expert cybercriminal. The 600 Appliances solve this problem and offer small businesses an inexpensive, yet comprehensive security solution that provides secure access to critical resources anywhere anytime, while minimising the risk of a data breach.¡¨

Check Point¡¦s 600 Appliances come pre-loaded with enterprise-class capabilities, including firewall, virtual private networks (VPN), intrusion prevention system (IPS), anti-virus, anti-spam, application control, and URL filtering. Most notably, the 600 Appliances run the same firewall and threat prevention capabilities found on Check Point products used by all of the Fortune 100 companies.

The 600 appliances are easy to set up and manage even by non-IT professionals. Flexible Web-based management options are offered through a simple and intuitive user interface. And with security policies pre-defined, small businesses can get their security up and running in a matter of minutes.
