SofaWare Technologies, a Check Point Software Technologies Ltd company, and Toshiba America Information Systems Inc.'s Network Products Division (NPD), have formed a collaboration aimed at ensuring the safety and security of broadband Internet usage in homes and offices. In seeing this goal, Toshiba will integrate SofaWare's Safe@ Internet security software into its cable modem gateways.

The PCX5000 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway, the first Toshiba NPD solution to include SofaWare Safe@, recently received the DOCSIS, Wi-Fi and WHQL certifications, ensuring that it meets with industry specifications and guarantees the modem's interoperability with qualified cable system headends.

The PCX5000 is a complete home networking solution that includes a cable modem, wireless and wired router and Safe@ Internet security software based on Check Point Software's market-leading VPN-1/FireWall-1 technology. Further, the PCX5000 can be configured through an intuitive Web management interface, simple enough to be used by anyone.

Toshiba plans to make the PCX5000 Wireless Cable Modem Gateway available through the retail channel and MSOs late this month.
