Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd, the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced the launch of two new security gateways that extend the company’s best-in-class data center network security portfolio. The new 13800 Appliance extends the 13000 line while the 21800 augments the 21000 Appliance family.
