VSX (Virtual System Extension) is a security and VPN solution for large-scale environments based on the proven security of Check Point Security Gateway. VSX provides comprehensive protection for multiple networks or VLANs within complex infrastructures. It securely connects them to shared resources such as the Internet and/or a DMZ, and allows them to safely interact with each other. VSX is supported by IPS™ Services, which provide up-to-date preemptive security.
VSX incorporates the same patented Stateful Inspection and Software Blades technology used in the Check Point Security Gateway product line. Administrators manage VSX using a Security Management Server or a Multi-Domain Server, delivering a unified management architecture that supports enterprises and service providers.
A VSX Gateway contains a complete set of virtual devices that function as physical network components, such as Security Gateway, routers, switches, interfaces, and even network cables. Centrally managed, and incorporating key network resources internally, VSX lets businesses deploy comprehensive firewall and VPN functionality, while reducing hardware investment and improving efficiency.
