Monday, 14 October 2002, 11:48 AM EST

Tests of three market-leading firewall/virtual private networking devices by the engineer calibre testing outfit The Tolly Group puts Check Point Technologies Ltd's VPN-1 Pro ahead of rival systems from Cisco Systems Inc and NetScreen Technologies Inc.

The tests rated the performance of the $16,000 Check Point product as five times better in a supposedly 'real/world' mix of Layer 7 application traffic tests than the rival $65,000 and $35,000 product lines. UDP firewall benchmark tests and UDP VPN performance tests were also carried out by Tolly.

On the firewall side the VPN-1 Pro showed a 15% edge on the other products in 64-byte tests. In VPN tests using 3DES with firewall enabled, the product managed five times the throughput of the others, and in VPN tests using the Advanced Encryption Standard with firewall enabled VPN-1 Pro also set the pace. Tolly ranked the price-performance of the system as at least three times better than the others.
