Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd, the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced that the latest IDC Tracker research data positions Check Point as the number one vendor in worldwide combined Firewall and UTM appliance revenue for Q2 2012. Check Point has achieved a major milestone by becoming the top vendor while bypassing one of the world’s largest network hardware companies.

Check Point has been the leader in the firewall market for 18 years and only recently entered the security appliance business in 2006. The company has aggressively grown its enterprise hardware business organically and through key acquisitions, such as the Nokia security appliance business in 2009. Today, Check Point security appliances deliver powerful turnkey systems for deploying and managing Check Point's award-winning Software Blades to address virtually any security need for businesses of all sizes.

Data in the latest IDC Worldwide Q2 2012 Security Appliance Tracker indicated:

• Check Point leads the global market with 20.9% Firewall and UTM appliance revenue share;
• Check Point is the overall leader in Firewall and UTM appliance revenue for Q2 2012;
• Check Point is the leader in Firewall and UTM factory revenue in US with 22.1% share and Western Europe with 29.8% share;
• Check Point is the leader in Firewall and UTM factory revenue in the $25K-$50k and $50k-$100K price bands.

“We are very pleased with the results of IDC’s latest tracker showing our movement to number one in the market. The Check Point team works hard to provide the very best solutions to our customers, and we continue to see adoption of our security appliances as the platform of choice for security consolidation,” said Amnon Bar-Lev, president of Check Point. "Our continued growth demonstrates our ability to execute and innovate in a challenging market.”

IDC defines firewalls as appliances that have as their primary function general-purpose filtering of networking traffic through packet filtering, stateful inspection, or proxy. UTM appliances combine at a minimum network firewalling, network intrusion detection and prevention, and gateway antivirus (AV) onto a single device, though other functions may also be included as well.

Check Point security appliances –include seven models, starting at the 2200 model up to the 61000 appliance model, the fastest firewall existing today. All are designed to optimize Check Point's award-winning Software Blade Architecture™ and support the company's vision for 3D security, combining policies, people and enforcement for unbeatable protection. Check Point's high-performing appliances are designed to support any combination of software blade protections, including: Firewall, VPN, Intrusion Prevention, Application Control, Mobile Access, Data Loss Prevention, Identity Awareness, URL Filtering, Anti-spam, Antivirus, Advanced Networking and Acceleration, as well as Check Point's unique Anti-Bot Software Blade. By consolidating security into a single, integrated solution, organizations of all sizes have the flexibility to customize their security infrastructure based on the precise level of protection and performance needed in any environment – today and as their businesses grow.
