Check Point Launches Address Mapping Technology

Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. introduced mappingtechnology yesterday that automatically matches an enduser's identity to a dynamically assigned IP address.

Check Point says its User to Address Mapping technology willhelp IT managers track network use and enforce accesspolicies in Dynamic Host Control Protocol, where IP addresseschange often. A byproduct of Check Point's 1998 merger withMetaInfo, the technology is available as part of CheckPoint's Meta IP software for IP address management.

User to Address Mapping is also integrated with Check Point'sFirewall 1 and VPN 1 products. When IT managers use thistechnology in conjunction with their firewalls, they cancontrol access: assign granular network privileges, trackexcessive Internet usage, and trace unauthorized IP addressesthat cause conflicts that interrupt network service.

User to Address Mapping transparently maps four components --a user's logon name, logon time, IP address, and Media AccessControl address -- to a dynamically assigned IP address. AnEnterprise Edition of the Meta IP 4.1 product starts at$9,995 for a 1,000-node network. A version for smallernetworks starts at $445 for a 100-node license.
