Quick Takes: New VPN takes pass on firewall

Check Point releases new firewall-less VPN product

Check Point Software Technologies announced this week VPN-1 Net, a new standalone virtual private network product aimed at branch offices and remote locations. Additionally, Ramat Gan, an Israel-based company is renaming its VPN-1 Gateway integrated firewall/VPN product VPN-1 Pro.

VPN-1 Net has all the networking capabilities of VPN-1 Pro but without a firewall. The product works with firewalls from Check Point and other makers. VPN-1 Net is well-suited for companies that want to install VPNs in smaller offices to replace wide area networks, said Greg Smith, CheckPoint's director of product marketing.

Unlike other VPN products that price based on number of users, pricing for VPN-1 Net is based on the number of VPN tunnels. Pricing starts at $1,000 for five tunnels. The software will run on a PC or an appliance.
