City of Montreal Re-Elects Check Point to Secure Voter Registration for November 2005 Election
Monday September 12, 8:30 am ET
Check Point's Perimeter Security Solutions Enable Secure Connectivity and Privacy

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 12, 2005--Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq:CHKP - News), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced that the City of Montreal, the largest city in the Canadian province of Quebec, will use Check Point's intelligent perimeter security solutions to secure remote voter registration locations for its next major government election in November 2005.

"The City of Montreal has relied on Check Point to secure its IT infrastructure for many years, but recently learned just how adaptable their security technology can be when we faced a special election in 2004," said Normand Jette, telecommunications specialist for the City of Montreal. "We needed to register voters quickly, effectively and securely. Security was paramount. Check Point's easy to use, reliable security was the perfect fit for setting up secure remote voter registration sites not only for that special election circumstance, but for future elections as well."

For its upcoming mayoral election, the City of Montreal will employ Check Point's market-leading perimeter security solutions across 30 registration centers located within shopping malls and other public venues in the city. To provide secure connectivity and reliable security, the City of Montreal will use VPN-1® Pro at the gateway and VPN-1 Edge(TM) for their remote voter registration sites. By leveraging these technologies for the 2005 election, the City of Montreal will benefit from the flexibility the Internet offers without sacrificing the security of the city's network.

"Citizens who perform their civic duty by registering to vote expect that their personal information will be kept private once entered into government databanks," said Carol Stone, vice president of worldwide marketing for Check Point Software Technologies. "Through our unified security architecture, The City of Montreal quickly realized that they could easily adapt their existing Check Point infrastructure to capitalize on this progressive way of registering their voters. With Check Point solutions in place, voter information will remain secured, and the City of Montreal will experience smooth Internet communications without any disruptions."

The City of Montreal is a long-standing Check Point customer and has widely deployed Check Point's intelligent perimeter and endpoint security solutions throughout its network to protect its government operations which support a network of 25,000 users.
