Appliance Selection Tool never made it out of Beta?

Remember Appliance Selection tool, guys?

It was announced Beta in September, and then disappeared. The link is dead now. The idea was to let you size appliances according to your traffic requirements. It was quite interesting when it was announced. When coming out as Beta, it looked good, at least beta good. And it was promised to be officially released in Q4 2011.

There are some traces of it on Check Point site. For example, it is mentioned in Security Power description. But nothing is out yet.

Too bad, my sales would love it. I would love it.

Would you?


  1. It's all very odd. I'm not sure what use a unit is if there is no way to relate it to my security needs.

  2. Well, that is not exactly true. Having some numbers that would help you to compare appliances, even by the same vendor, is better than nothing.
