Hi,

About to purchase IP565 or IP695.   The spec on these devices R/70/R71 is there a big difference between the 2 platforms ?

If they come with R70 is it worth upgrading R71 ?

Basically, the 695 is the newer model with more beans inside.

The 565 is the original 560 (which has been around for a while now) optimised for blade architecture check point.

Review the specs and see which one is the best fit for your requirements.

Hi,

Not seeing much of difference between the IP565 and 695 apart from the 695 having more portsd and the  Support optional ADP service modules.

From the spec the device is shipped with R70/R71 would I better going with R71 is there much of a difference ?

CP advise sticking with the latest version but it also depends on what security certification you need on the software, ie EAL4 etc.  The newer versions will still be going through the process to get this certification so the older versions tend to be more popular.

If the security certification is not an issue then I would suggest getting R71

Sadly not yet.

http://www.checkpoint.com/products/certifications/ has more info.

The latest version for EAL4 is R65 HFA 30.

Note, getting EAL 4 certification is a long process that can take up to 2 years so it needs to be taken into account when scoping new solutions
