China Telecom Achieves Security and Management Goals With Check Point Solutions
Distributor Serves Key Role in China Telecom Security Implementation


REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Feb. 1, 2006--Check Point® Software Technologies Ltd. (Nasdaq:CHKP - News), the worldwide leader in securing the Internet, today announced that China Telecom, one of the largest telecommunications carriers in China, has successfully leveraged Check Point's market-leading security solutions to fit the needs of its growing, diverse customer base. By using Check Point solutions, China Telecom achieved maximized, reliable security protection and simplified, centralized management.

China Telecom, a Global 500 company, offers a complete set of communication services to its diverse customer base. To maintain its positive reputation in the telecommunications industry, China Telecom required a security solution that would stand up to the rigorous requirements for the stability, reliability and security of its Data Communications Network (DCN). With such heavy network traffic, China Telecom needed a security solution that would prevent unauthorized access between systems and enable their DCN to remain up-and-running 24 x 7. In addition, the company needed a solution that would allow IT administrators to manage remote operations in Beijing, Shanghai and Wuhan from one central location.

For consulting and security expertise, China Telecom turned to Century Technology Company Limited, a local solution provider/distributor company in Beijing that focuses on providing security solutions to a number of local and multinational enterprises, banks, telcos and operators, and state-owned organizations. "As a leading player in the telecom industry, China Telecom can't afford to have any network downtime. They need to deliver uninterrupted communication services to more than 280 million customers," said Mr. Andrew Mui, Managing Director of Century Technology. "We recommended that China Telecom purchase solutions from Check Point because it was the only security vendor that could meet their stringent security and management requirements. China Telecom has operations in multiple locations, and a solution that has the ability to streamline security management was required for the company to achieve maximum operational efficiency."

By using Check Point solutions, China Telecom has resolved its security issues and realized the following benefits:

Reduced Costs -- China Telecom is able to centrally manage a dispersed network from one central location, reducing security management costs and freeing its IT staff to perform other critical functions.
Maximized Security Protection -- China Telecom enjoys proactive security protection that prevents both known and unknown attacks, allowing the company to focus on running their telecommunications business instead of worrying about Internet attacks.
Enhanced Network Reliability -- China Telecom experiences faster network speeds and no service interruptions, ensuring that business runs smoothly at all times.
"Check Point has been resolving customer security issues for over a decade and has consistently been successful at alleviating the most pressing pain points by delivering reliable security protection and simplified security management," said Cedric Chan, vice president, North Asia sales for Check Point Software Technologies. "With 100% of the Telecom companies in the Global 500 index relying on Check Point solutions, we are helping China Telecom meet their current business needs and scale upwards to deliver new, exciting solutions to their customers."
