Check Point R75 Now Available

Reading time ~1 minute

Anyone who's following the Check Point TwitterFacebook 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!
