Check Point: GO has to go

Some of you may have already seen Check Point announcement about GO solution, a.k.a. ABRA to reach end of sale on 31.12.2013.

I feel a bit blue about it. It is not only that GO was a unique virtualisation solution that never had anything close from the competitors. And not only about some customers of mine that bought these Check Point USB keys in bulks.

It is more about no alternative solution to replace it. Yet again, as sometime in the past with Interspect (I am genuinely surprised there are still some links to it on Check Point Web site), Check Point had a unique product idea but never managed to nurse it to maturity and wide recognition.

Sic transit Check Point GO, I guess...
