Check Point Security Appliances are integrated hardware devices that are pre-installed with essential software blades to produce a comprehensive, turnkey security gateway solution.
A Checkpoint firewall is a device that allows multiple networks to communicate with one another according to a defined security policy. They are used when there is a need for networks of varying levels of trust to communicate with one another. For example, a firewall typically exists between a corporate network and a public network like the Internet. It can also be used inside a private network to limit access to different parts of the network. Wherever there are different levels of trust among the different parts of a network, a firewall can and should be used.
