Software Blades


A Software Blade is a security application or module such as a firewall, Virtual Private Network (VPN), Intrusion Prevention System (IPS), or Application Control that is independent, modular and centrally managed. They allow organizations to customize a security configuration that targets the right mix of protection and investment. 

Software Blades can be quickly enabled and configured on any gateway or management system with a simple click of a mouse — no hardware, firmware or driver upgrades required. And as needs evolve, additional Software Blades can be easily activated to extend security to an existing configuration on the same security hardware.
