Check Point Smart-1 appliances deliver cyber security management for the era of big data. Five Smart-1 Appliances enable organizations to consolidate security policy, log, and event management. Organizations can leverage Smart-1 Appliances to manage from 5 to 5000 gateways, segment the network into 200 independent domains, and detect threats in real-time. Smart-1 Appliances offer the scalability to meet your needs today and in the future.
Consolidated and Comprehensive Security Management
Smart-1 appliances consolidate security, log, and event management into a single dedicated management appliance and a unified management console for one-stop security management and monitoring. From SmartConsole, an administrator can define and monitor security policies across multiple security functions including Firewall, IPS, Anti-Virus, Anti-Bot, Threat Emulation, URL Filtering, and Application control.
Smart-1 Appliances provide central security management and the ability to view logs, track events, view reports and monitor security and network activity, see trends, and centrally distribute signatures and software updates.
Organizations seeking to optimize their security management can leverage the Compliance Software Blade on their Smart-1 Appliances. Security best practices provided by the Compliance Software Blade deliver continuous feedback to organizations to help them ensure that gateways and Software Blades are configured and managed correctly. The Compliance Software Blade simulates the security impact of configuration or policy changes before installation, and provides real-time notifications to administrators alerting them to potential risks. The Compliance Software Blade provides a valuable tool for organizations seeking to consolidate their security management and stay on top of your security posture.
Multi-Domain Security Management
Smart-1 Appliances allow IT administrators to segment security management into as many as 200 independent domains. Easily create domains based on geography, business unit or security function to strengthen security and simplify management by segregating administration and policies.
Smart-1 Appliances with Multi-Domain Log Management host log files in segregated domains and improve performance by isolating log traffic from management traffic.
Up to 24TB of internal RAID Storage
Smart-1 Appliances provide up to 24 TB of built-in storage as well as high-performance fiber channel connectivity to Storage Area Networks (SANs) for external storage.
Starting with a single 1TB or 2TB disk drive, and expanding up to 12x2TB disk drives, the Smart-1 appliance is a flexible platform providing storage capabilitites suited for small to large environments, able to host billions of log records.
Scalable and Reliable Platform
Smart-1 Appliances support Lights-Out Management (Out-of-Band Management) allowing off-network monitoring and control of the appliance, including device maintenance and administration. Several add-on options are available including a fiber channel SAN module, and redundant and hot swappable power supplies and hard drives, for a high degree of availability.
Integrated into Flexible Software Blade Architecture
The Check Point Software Blade architecture is the first and only security architecture that delivers complete, flexible and manageable security to companies of any size. With unprecedented flexibility and expandability, Software Blades deliver lower cost of ownership and cost-efficient protection that meet any need, today and in the future.
