Redwood City, CA — August 26, 2008
Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq: CHKP), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced it has began shipping a new version of Check Point Endpoint Security™, the first single agent for endpoint security to combinethe highest-rated firewall, network access control (NAC), program control, remote access, antivirus, anti-spyware, full disk encryption and media encryption with port protection.
The new release, Check Point Endpoint Security R70, features a newly enhanced and streamlined interface as well as additional tools for enterprise deployment. By creating a single endpoint security agent with a single client interface, deploying and managing endpoint security is dramatically simplified.
