" The Bivio 1000 platforms offer deep packet inspection and scalable computational power, both of which are required for successful installations of Check Point’s Application Intelligence," said Elan Amir, chief technology officer for Bivio Networks. "Bivio’s architecture translates Application Intelligence software into uncompromising performance with application level inspection required to block today’s sophisticated security threats. As a result, Bivio provides a future-proof solution for Check Point software."
Check Point’s Application Intelligence™ technology addresses today's most critical Internet security threats - the new breed of sophisticated, damaging application-driven attacks. This new technology is the company’s latest innovation of its market-leading product suite to provide customers with the industry's only comprehensive, integrated security solution for defeating and preventing both network-level and application-level attacks.
Next Generation with Application Intelligence greatly expands and integrates application attack protection, configuration and management capabilities from multiple Check Point technologies to gain a deeper understanding of application behavior and block attacks. This enables multiple layers of security in one integrated and easy-to-manage gateway.
The Bivio 1000 system delivers uncompromising performance and unmatched flexibility for security applications. For example, Tolly Group test results illustrate the Bivio 1000 delivers ASIC-like performance to Check Point FireWall-1 software under heavy session loads. Bivio is the industry’s leading Check Point security platform, delivering the exceptional small packet performance, session handling and 82% of line rate throughput at 64 bytes. In addition, the system delivers future value by enabling new security or IP services to be added via remote software upgrades.
