Security Gateways and VPN connections are business critical devices.
The failure of a Security Gateway or VPN connection can result in the loss of active connections and access to critical data.
The Security Gateway between the organization and the world must remain open under all circumstances.
ClusterXL is a Check Point software-based cluster solution for Security Gateway redundancy and Load Sharing.
A ClusterXL Security Cluster contains identical Check Point Security Gateways:
A High Availability Security Cluster ensures Security Gateway and VPN connection redundancy by providing transparent failover to a backup Security Gateway in the event of failure.
A Load Sharing Security Cluster provides reliability and also increases performance, as all members are active.
