Check Point was one of them presenting new 11 Series Power-1 appliances with IPS blade. Other vendors are Cisco, IBM, Palo Alto, Juniper and others.
Although the full report can only be purchased for symbolic $1800, some results from it are available on Check Point web site.
It appears that Check Point IPS has the second highest score for effectiveness among other appliances.
This is great result, well done, Check Point.
Hopefully it will help customers to start trusting IPS technology of Check Point again, after the company scared some of them off with SmartDefense.
Thanks for gessing Vendor A, guys!
I guess Palo Alto is Vendor E if you look at this link http://www.paloaltonetworks.com/literature/forms/nss-labs-report.phpReplyDelete
They are NOT vendor A but vendor E, as far as I can see. If I would bet, I lost.
Vendor A is SourcefireReplyDelete
Jukka, any proof link or other reference?ReplyDelete
I do have that PDF in my "hands"...ReplyDelete
Also i wonder is that Palo Alto link
Same test that NSS did in december ?
When i open Checkpoints test results, there is mentioned "DECEMBER 2010 METHODOLOGY VERSION: 6.1"
But when i open Palo Alto test results, there is mentioned "AUGUST 2010
METHODOLOGY VERSION: 6.0"
Most probably Palo Alto did not update the report yet.ReplyDelete
But you are right
My analysis after reading several news sources (no access to full NSS report)ReplyDelete
A = Sourcefire
B = Check Point
C = McAfee
D = ? (guessing Juniper or Stonesoft)
E = Palo Alto
F = ? (guessing Juniper or Stonesoft)
G = ? (guessing Cisco)
H = IBM
I..L = ?
M = Endace
Any Justification in regards to Sourcefire? If so, which exact model got the first place, as they have presented 3.
Sourcefire model was 3D 4500 and it was letter AReplyDelete
Letter D was JuniperReplyDelete
Letter F was Juniper
Does somebody know wich is Stonesoft... nice to know because all fuzz round AET
