Check Point beefs up network protection
Check Point Software Technologies takes its first step this week toward fulfilling its pledge to evolve beyond being firewall provider by introducing a family of security appliances designed to protect internal networks.
Dubbed InterSpect, the new appliances provide protection against viruses, worms, and other threats employees may pick up when using their computers outside of the company's secure network.
