Check Point 15400 Appliances offer a complete and consolidated security solution available in two complete packages: 

  • NGTP: prevent sophisticated cyber-threats with IPS, Application Control, Antivirus, Anti-Bot, URL Filtering and Email Security. 
  • NGTX: NGTP with SandBlast Zero-Day Protection, which includes Threat Emulation and Threat Extraction. 


The 15400 Appliance protects organizations from both known and unknown threats with Antivirus, Anti-Bot, SandBlast Threat Emulation (sandboxing), and SandBlast Threat Extraction technologies. 

As part of the Check Point SandBlast Zero-Day Protection solution, the cloud-based Threat Emulation engine detects malware at the exploit phase, even before hackers can apply evasion techniques attempting to bypass the sandbox. Files are quickly quarantined and inspected, running in a virtual sandbox to discover malicious behavior before it enters your network. This innovative solution combines cloud-based CPU-level inspection and OS-level sandboxing to prevent infection from the most dangerous exploits, and zero-day and targeted attacks. 

Furthermore, SandBlast Threat Extraction removes exploitable content, including active content and embedded objects, reconstructs files to eliminate potential threats, and promptly delivers sanitized content to users to maintain business flow.

The Check Point 15400 appliance delivers business continuity and serviceability through features such as hot swappable redundant power supplies, optional hot-swappable redundant hard disk drives (RAID), redundant fans and an advanced LOM card for out-of-band management. Combined together, these features ensure a greater degree of business continuity and serviceability when these appliances are deployed in the customer’s networks. 


A Lights-Out-Management (LOM) card provides out-of-band remote management to remotely diagnose, start, restart and manage the appliance from a remote location. Administrators can also use the LOM web interface to remotely install an OS image from an ISO file. 


High speed connections are essential in modern enterprise and data center environments, especially those with high-density virtualized servers. If you’re ready to move from 10 to 40 GbE, so is the 15400 Appliance. The Check Point 15400 lets you connect your 10 GbE server uplinks to your 40 GbE core network with up to 4x 40 GbE ports. 


Check Point Virtual Systems enable organizations to consolidate infrastructure by creating multiple virtualized security gateways on a single hardware device, offering significant cost savings with seamless security and infrastructure consolidation.
