Hi,

 

We’ve announced in CPX Asia 2 new Security Gateways appliances: 6500 & 6800. The Check Point 6500 and 6800 are a new generation of high performance Security Gateways for the enterprise market segment. With the new 6000 series, enterprise customers can enable advanced threat prevention and inspect for threats within TLS encrypted traffic.

 

The 6500 and 6800 will be available in the Check Point Product Catalog from February 1st.

 

Datasheets are available for download now.

With the introduction of the 6500 & 6800 we are taking the opportunity to simplify and accelerate our business processes.

These new products and all of their accessories are priced with significant discounts incorporated in their list prices. This shortens sales cycles and eliminates dependencies in discounting processes.

In addition we revisited how we offer our Security Gateways. Instead of dozens of tedious appliance SKUs, each model will be available in 2 simple configurations: base and PLUS. Both are equipped with our existing and well-known Next Generation Threat Prevention subscription for the first year. The PLUS option adds a richer hardware configuration; redundant components when supported by the gateway, SSDs and extra memory for additional connection capacity. The base option comes with Hard Disk Drive(s) and supports local management while the PLUS with SSD disk(s) does not.

 

With the ~50% price reduction in accessories there are also stricter discounting policies which are also incorporated into the Check Point Product Catalog.

 

I would like to take this opportunity and thank the many groups that were involved in the introduction of these 2 new appliances – R&D, QA, Finance, NPI, Product Infrastructure, Planning, Business Analysis, Legal – great Teamwork!

 

Feel free to contact me in any question or query regarding the 6500 & 6800.

Wishing you a successful and fruitful 2019.
