Check Point R75 Now Available
Anyone who’s following the Check Point Twitter, Facebook page, or has been peeking around in User Center has probably seen the release of R75–Check Point’s next major release. DLP, Mobile Access, Identity Awareness, and Application Control are all now available as Software Blades–modules that can be enabled as needed.
Over the past several months, as part of my normal duties at Check Point, I have talked with a number of the people involved in this release. I’ve learned about some of the technologies that went into this release, and I have to say, it’s quite amazing how it all comes together!
Take R75 out for a test drive. Even if you don’t immediately use the new features, there are some usability enhancements in the SmartConsole applications, an improved IPS engine, and, of course, AppWiki, which is a great resource to find out about applications–even if you’re not using our Application Control Software Blade!
