Check Point Blends VPN With Endpoint Security

Check Point Software Tuesday shipped Check Point Integrity SecureClient, the first result of the Redwood City, Calif.-based firm's purchase of Zone Labs late last year.

Running on Windows 2000, XP, and Server 2003, the client combines Check Point's SecureClient virtual private network (VPN) access with Zone Labs' Integrity 5.0, an endpoint security solution.

The blended client lets administrators deny connections to systems which don't comply with company policies, such as an up-to-date set of anti-virus signatures or an enabled firewall. Other features include central management, advanced IPSec VPN, Check Point's Stateful Inspection traffic detector technology, and advanced application privilege controls.

Check Point purchased Zone Labs late last year for $205 million, a move that expanded the former's reach into new endpoint territory, where Zone Labs' firewalls are entrenched.

Integrity SecureClient's price varies on the number of seats purchased, said Check Point, but in a 1,000-seat buy the cost comes to approximately $56 per user.
