Information Week: Check Point Ports VPN-1, FireWall-1 To Linux

“Recognizing the impact the Linux operating system has had on IT
environments, Check Point Software Technologies Inc. said today it
will port its VPN-1 and FireWall-1 product families to support
Linux in the first quarter of 2000.”

Check Point’s goal is to help network administrators create
a secure virtual network architecture strategy, one that extends
the high level of security found in Internet transactions to those
conducted over a local area network
, says Mike Lee, product
marketing manager for Check Point. “To do this, Check Point’s
security products need to run on a number of different platforms,
including Linux.”
