Check Point Software Technologies (Nasdaq: CHKP) and Internet Security Systems (Nasdaq: ISSX), are working together to secure the world’s largest short-term network, the InteropNet Event Network (eNet), at Networld+Interop this week for the eighth consecutive time.

NetWorld+Interop and COMDEX Atlanta 2002 runs through Friday at the Georgia World Congress Center.

Check Point and ISS say they are securing all NetWorld+Interop and COMDEX exhibitions, conference rooms and meeting rooms. The eNet is a full-capacity network that has the security capabilities of a large-scale, corporate network. Check Point is integrating its VPN-1/FireWall-1 Next Generation solution with ISS’ RealSecure solution to secure the eNet for over 30,000 attendees.

In addition, Check Point NG has incorporated “One-Click” technologies that simplify VPN deployment and management. Both Check Point and ISS are providing security expertise on-site at the show, and ISS experts are remotely monitoring the security of the eNet around-the-clock utilizing its managed security services from the ISS X-Force Global Threat Operations Center in Atlanta, the company says.
