The Software Blades architecture provides a complete selection of Software Blades, each delivering a modular security gateway or security management function. Software Blades enable users to efficiently and quickly tailor Security Gateway and Management functionality to specific and changing needs. When running on multi-core platforms and appliances, Check Point CoreXL technology delivers near linear performance scalability for many of the Software Blades.
