Check Point Completes Nokia Security Acquisition

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. (CHKP) announced it has completed the acquisition of the Nokia security appliance business after a twelve-year strategic partnership with the company.

In addition to Check Point UTM-1 and Power-1 appliances, businesses can purchase immediately, through Check Point VARs, former Nokia IP hardware running Check Point security software.

In the near future, Check Point also plans to introduce a new line of all-inclusive IP appliances. The line of IP appliances will come pre-loaded with either Check Point R70, Check Point’s latest security gateway based on the innovative Software Blade Architecture, or Check Point NGX R65. In the mean time, Nokia IP appliances are now available from Check Point, eliminating the need for customers to obtain two separate licenses from two different vendors. Similarly, existing Nokia customer support contracts will be immediately supported by Check Point, including support for older platforms and OS versions.
