This document provides test results for the Check Point 15600 Next Generation Threat Prevention (NGTP) Appliance R80.20 OS build 2 (IPS signature: package 635184905).

During the NSS Labs 2018 Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) Group Test, the Check Point 15600 Next Generation Threat Prevention (NGTP) Appliance R80.20 failed to detect five evasions and did not pass all of the stability and reliability tests.

After working closely with NSS, Check Point updated its software and released Check Point 15600 Next Generation Threat Prevention (NGTP) Appliance R80.20 OS build 2 (IPS signature: package 635184905). The updated device was subjected to testing under the same NGFW Test Methodology v8.0 and appropriately handled 190 out of the 190 evasions it was tested against. Furthermore, the device passed all stability and reliability tests, improving its exploit block rate by 0.45% and improving performance by 435 Mbps.

Note: NSS-Tested Throughput was previously misstated. This was corrected as of 08/17/18.

As with all NSS Labs group tests, there was no fee for participation. All testing was conducted independently and was not paid for by any vendor.
