Fujitsu Strengthens its Global Solutions Portfolio and Reduces Customer Security Risks

November 07, 2013

  • Fujitsu and Check Point Software Technologies to jointly market Check Point Integrated Appliance Solutions (IAS) R-Series security appliance selection powered by PRIMERGY
  • Extended partnership broadens availability of consolidated security appliances via international sales capability of Fujitsu and its worldwide network of channel partners


Brussels, November 7, 2013 – Fujitsu today announces at Fujitsu Forum 2013 that it is significantly minimizing customer implementation risks and shortening Information and Communications Technology (ICT) project times by further strengthening its global solutions portfolio and allying with software partners that are leaders in their respective segments. In the latest in a series of such alliances, Fujitsu is expanding its successful partnership with Check Point Software Technologies Ltd, the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, to jointly bring to market the Check Point Integrated Appliance Solutions (IAS) R-Series security appliance powered by FUJITSU Server PRIMERGY Systems.


Check Point IAS offer flexibility and choice in security appliances. They provide integrated solutions and direct support that are predesigned customized to organizations’ exact specifications, enabling the provisioning of security services based on exact corporate needs.


Available since July 2012 from Check Point in a limited number of countries including the US and the UK, Fujitsu and its worldwide network of channel partners will now extensively broaden international availability for the Check Point IAS R-Series.


As the leader in securing the Internet, Check Point recommends system consolidation for strengthened security, simultaneously providing firewall protection, application control, IPS, DLP, anti-virus, URL filtering, and other security-related applications including the revolutionary ThreatCloud Emulation. Meanwhile, market demand continues to grow for security solutions that have already been sized, tested, integrated and installed on an optimized platform to minimize both operational risk and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) while maximizing Return on Investment (ROI).


Check Point IAS R-Series on world class PRIMERGY S8 Series meets these needs, while also providing a Unified Security Architecture with a single point of contact for support, delivered by Check Point. The company is a Gold Partner of Fujitsu Forum 2013, taking place in Munich on November 6-7, 2013.
