AN Edge is a smaller box with embedded software made by Sofaware / Checkpoint. It can be used as a standalone or controlled by a smartcenter (with a license) and is ideal for small offices. It provides VPN termination and basic URL filtering / AV and anti-spam.

A VPN-1 Power is a fully fledged Checkpoint install and comprises of a SmartCenter server and enforcement module which may or may not be hosted on the same box. It runs on a variety of different hardware and operating systems and is ideal for enterprises, not least because of the cost of the licences

A UTM is Checkpoint's all-in-one appliance - a smartcenter and enforcement module in one box with licenses for all the necessary AV / antispam etc.
