Check Point Software Unveils the World’s Fastest Firewall to Support the World’s Most Demanding Data Centres

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., a global leader in cyber security solutions, has expanded its Quantum portfolio with Quantum Lightspeed Firewalls, ushering in the most significant network security revolution in the previous decade.

Quantum Lightspeed sets the standard for firewall performance to enable Hyper-fast data centre security for every enterprise:

  • 5 times better firewall throughput – Up to 3 Tbps per system / 800 Gbps per single gateway
  • 10 times faster – Ultra-low latency at 3 microseconds
  • 20 times better price performance than competing solutions

The modern data centre is rapidly transitioning to a hybrid architecture, with both on-premises and cloud operations, with the emergence of distributed SaaS applications and the need to better serve remote workers. Enterprises of all sizes are challenged to provide hyper-fast data centre security at the speed of the network, with network traffic expanding 2X every 3 years.

Check Point Quantum Lightspeed uses NVIDIA’s innovative ASIC technology to deliver breakthrough firewall performance that enables enterprises to support elephant flows and securely transfer terabytes of data in minutes rather than hours. Financial institutions may now securely execute millions of high-frequency trades with microsecond latency, and any company can provide quick access to remote users and support high-growth companies.

“As more enterprises rely on their hybrid data centres to conduct business transactions, they need to implement a solution with network security speed,” said Dr. Dorit Dor, Chief Product Officer at Check Point. “Our goal was to design a solution that would work in the most demanding data centres which require high security throughput, low latency and can expand on demand to support rapid growth. Check Point Quantum Lightspeed hyper-fast firewalls deliver line-rate firewall performance at the speed of the network, setting a new standard in cybersecurity performance.”

“AI, 5G and the proliferation of smart devices are just some of the trends propelling enormous growth in data centre traffic and creating new cybersecurity challenges for enterprise,” said Michael Kagan CTO at NVIDIA. “NVIDIA turbocharges zero-trust security in the data centre and enables innovators such as Check Point to develop next-generation solutions like the Check Point Quantum Lightspeed security gateway, powered by the extreme performance of the NVIDIA ConnectX SmartNIC.”

“Enterprises that have distributed hybrid data centres and applications need data centre security that performs at the speed of their business, needing to securely accelerate data transfers between applications, other data centres, and backups to the hybrid cloud,” said Frank Dickson, IDC Vice President of Security and Trust. “Check Point Quantum Lightspeed hyper-fast firewalls deliver data centre security performance at the speed of the network, enabling enterprises to transfer hundreds of terabytes of data in minutes instead of hours, provide low latency for high frequency financial transactions, while also scaling security on demand to support high growth businesses like online commerce.”
