I am on my journey back from the Barcelona Sales Kick-Off of Check Point. We were presented the new appliances and while sitting at the airport I realize that they are already on the website. These are the new appliances: 3100, 5100 and 5900. The 5900 is really exciting with up to 32 GB RAM and dual hot-swap HDD or SSD. This system seem to fit perfectly between 5800 and 15400.

VSX R77.30 is quite a good implementation with some annoying flaws – but really worth using it. The now announced features for VSX in R80.10 and beyond will make it even a by far more mature OS. I am really looking forward to the first implementations. Stay tuned.
