Nokia added a new appliance to its network security range that has more processing muscle -- the first product to come out of its collaboration with Intel.

The IP2450 is intended for large enterprises and service providers doing high-end network monitoring. It features two quad-core Intel processors.

Running Check Point Software Technologies' SecureXL VPN (virtual private network) and firewall software, the appliance can handle as much as 9G bps (bits per second) of traffic using Nokia's IPSO 6.O OS. Adding two Nokia Accelerated Data Path (ADP) cards boosts throughput to 20G bps.

The IP2450 can also run Check Point's CoreXL software, as well as Check Point's VPN-1 UTM (Unified Threat Management) suite, which includes firewall, VPN (virtual private network), antivirus, URL (uniform resource locator) filtering and intrusion prevention capabilities or the Check Point VPN-1 Power applications.

The IP2450 is available now through Nokia's channel partners. Pricing can vary depending on the channel partner's relationship with Nokia, but a call to one vendor in London quoted £31,000 (AU$75,637) for the appliance, plus £7,500 for one year of 24-hour support.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
