Redefining Cyber Security: Check Point Unveils Quantum Force Gateway Series - The Ultimate AI-Powered Cloud Delivered Security Solution


VIENNA, Austria, Feb. 21, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (NASDAQ: CHKP), a leading AI-powered, cloud-delivered cyber security platform provider, introduces Check Point Quantum Force series: an innovative lineup of ten high-performance firewalls designed to meet and exceed the stringent security demands of enterprise data centers, network perimeters, campuses, and businesses of all dimensions. Powered by the advanced Check Point Infinity Platform, which integrates cloud-based security intelligence, a sophisticated automated threat response system, and over 50 AI engines, Quantum Force Security Gateways boast the capability to deliver up to 1 Tbps of AI-fueled threat prevention, achieving an unparalleled malware block rate of 99.8%. The Quantum Force series redefines the benchmarks for firewall performance, offering double the threat prevention efficacy, double the power efficiency, and compact 1RU/2RU form factors for space optimization, alongside unified management to cater to the most rigorous security scenarios.

"Thirty years ago, Check Point created the firewall. Today, we revolutionize it with Quantum Force.

Digital and cloud transformation is happening at an unprecedented rate. With the hybrid workforce now a permanent fixture in most companies, there is a growing need for secure and fast networks to seamlessly enable remote work.
