"Now, Check Point's industry

small businesses," said Laura Yecies, vice president at Check Point.

The Check Point Safe@Office 500 and 500W, powered by advanced technology developed

allow outsourcing security management to a trusted 3rd party.

"The new Safe@Office 500 series solves the security dilemma for small businesses," said
Liran Eshel, chief executive officer of SofaWare Technologies.

"Today's sophisticated
hackers don't discriminate based upon the size of the target, yet true enterprise
-
level
security has been elusive for these customers. Our new product line was designed to
meet the specific needs and limited budgets of small offices

without compromising the
level of protection and without requiring complex set up and management."

Safe@Office 500 is based on the new Check Point Embedded NGX 6.0, the latest security
