Two super High End appliances from Check Point

For those who missed this historical event, Gil Shwed just announced two new Check Point appliances in the NASDAQ opening ceremony.

One is 21400 series, new two-U modular device with fully redundant HW and exchangeable cards.

The other one is full blown chassis based monster with up to 1 TBPS throughput -  61000 appliance.
It is looking quite familiar. If you ask me, its resemblance to Crossbeam X series hard to miss.

Now Check Point owns the full jazz starting from SOHO with SG 80 and going to the highest end imaginable with 65000.
The other interesting things announced were R75.20 with SSL inspection, well expected integration of URL filtering and Application Control and my favorite: new SecurityPower calculator to choose the best appliance for your need.

Well done, Gil! I am positively interested.
