FEUP Breaks Security-Performance Bottleneck With Check Point Technology
The Faculty of Engineering of the University of Porto, (FEUP) is a Portuguese engineering teaching institution, integrated into the University of Porto, where undergraduate and postgraduate courses are taught in various engineering disciplines. FEUP needed to increase its Internet access bandwidth, currently rated at 1Gbps, while maintaining or even increasing security and needed a solution that supports quick, secure data transfer, a key prerequisite for researchers who have international projects. A new technology from Check Point called CoreXL helped alleviate the problem. This technology is integrated with VPN-1 Power and is employed on Intel multi-core processors for speeding up network security scanning.
