VPN Auto-Connect

VPN auto-connect re-establishes lost connections by automatically switching connection modes. It eliminates the need for users to re-authenticate when roaming between different network types (LAN, WiFi, GPRS, etc.), using intermittent networks or resuming work from sleep mode.

Multi-Factor Authentication Support

The Endpoint Remote Access VPN Software Blade offers comprehensive authentication, including:

  • Username and passwords (including cached passwords)
  • SecurID
  • Challenge / Response
  • CAPI software and hardware tokens

Secure Hotspot Registration

With secure hotspot registration, administrators can selectively grant access to hotspot registration sites. Hotspot registration pages are loaded automatically for the user.

Integrated into Check Point Software Blade Architecture

The Endpoint Remote Access VPN Software Blade is integrated into the Software Blade Architecture. Endpoint Security Software Blades from Check Point bring unprecedented flexibility, control and efficiency to the management and deployment of endpoint security. Choose from six Software Blades to deploy only the protection you need, with the freedom to increase security at any time from a single central management console.


Check Point Endpoint Remote Access VPN Software Blades support full IPsec VPN connectivity for strong authentication, data integrity and confidentiality. NAT-T standard support enables traversing between static and dynamic Network Address Translation (NAT) devices.

Compliance Scanning

With compliance scanning, endpoints are automatically scanned for malware and suspicious activity to ensure compliance with corporate security policies. Failing endpoints can be directed to remediation.

As an example, administrators can ensure that endpoints are free of malware and have the latest service packs installed before granting access to corporate resources.
