In the news: 

Check Point announced that Internet Initiative Japan (IIJ), the
leading ISP in Japan, will incorporate Check Point Provider-1 and
FireWall-1(TM) into its managed security service offering.
 
Check Point released the next step in software to allow different
parts of a company's private virtual network to share the same
security information. Check Point's Secure Virtual Network Phase II
will allow companies whose different software systems perform
different functions -- such as customer management and inventory
information -- to work from the same list of users. The new software
will allow each program on a system to see what identified user is
permitted to do and the information the user is allowed to see.

Check Point's board of directors approved a two-for-one stock split.
The record date for the stock split is expected to be on July 14,
2000, payment date is expected to be on July 25, 2000 and post-split
trading is expected to commence on July 26, 2000.
