Expose your local service to public: Ngrok, FRP, localtunnel
For many IT workers remotely involved with networking, it is quite common to need to expose your Intranet application to the outside world in a secured manner. Unfortunately, we work most of the time from private IP networks, be that at the workplace, at home or at the coffee shop. The router(s) or firewall (s) that stands between our workstation…
Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Network Firewall (2018,2017,2016,2015,2014,2013,2011,2010)
Based on Gartner’s definition, the enterprise network firewall ” is composed primarily of purpose-built appliances for securing enterprise corporate networks. Products must be able to support single-enterprise firewall deployments and large and/or complex deployments, including branch offices, multitiered demilitarized zones (DMZs) and, increasingly, the option to include virtual versions for the data center. Customers should also have the option to…
Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM Products (2018,2017,2016,2015,2014,2013,2012,2011…)
Gartner defines SIEM as a technology that aggregates data produced by security devices, network infrastructure and systems, and applications. Products in the security information and event management (SIEM) market analyze security event data and network flow data in real time for internal and external threat management. They collect, store, analyze and report on log data for incident response, forensics and…
According to wikipedia Iperf “is a commonly used network testing tool that can create TCP and UDP data streams and measure the throughput of a network that is carrying them. Iperf is a modern tool for network performance measurement written in C++.” This tool has to configure server side and client side to complete a test. It can test from…

Patented SecureXL is a technology interface that accelerates multiple, intensive security operations, including operations that are carried out by Check Point’s Stateful Inspection firewall. Using SecureXL, the firewall offloads operations to a performance-optimized software or hardware device, dramatically increasing throughput.
CoreXL: Multicore acceleration As the first security technology to fully leverage general-purpose multi-core processors, CoreXL introduces advanced core-level load balancing that increases throughput for the deep inspection required to achieve intrusion prevention and high throughput on the firewall. With CoreXL, high performance and high security can be achieved simultaneously.
Efficient Use Multiple CPU Cores—CoreXL
CoreXL is the first security technology to fully leverage general-purpose multi-core processors. It introduces advanced load balancing to boost throughput for the deep inspection required to achieve integrated IPS on the firewall. The increased processing capability in multiple cores allows networks to have high performance as well as a high level of security.
When CoreXL technology is activated, it immediately assigns one or more cores that are performing SecureXL acceleration to also act as directors for traffic. The other cores are designated to run instances of IPS and Firewall on each core.
For example, if an appliance contains two quad-core processors, two cores will perform SecureXL acceleration and direct traffic to the other six cores that run IPS and Firewall instances. The cores acting as directors have two main functions. First, it makes the initial security decisions whether this traffic can be accelerated by SecureXL. Second, it assigns traffic to a core to handle additional security inspection if needed.
ClusterXL: Smart Load Balancing
ClusterXL provides high availability and load sharing that keeps businesses running without interruption. ClusterXL distributes traffic between clusters of redundant gateways, combining the computing capacity of multiple machines to increase total throughput. In the event of a gateway or network failure, connections are seamlessly redirected to a designated backup, maintaining business continuity.
SPLAT Pro – Dynamic Routing support, Multicast support, Radius Authentication for SPLAT Admins. Cluster XL Load Sharing – Allows Active | Active clustering out of the box. By default SPLAT only allows Active | Passive clustering. Active | Active (load sharing) mode needs a license. CoreXL – SPLAT does not take advantage of multiple cores unless you add the CoreXL license, which is dependent upon the number of CPU’s / cores you are running. SecureXL – Packet acceleration
