Check Point Software Leads Virtual Private Networking Market

More than 17,000 VPN gateway installations and industry's most
comprehensive and integrated product offering move Check Point
Software to forefront of VPN Market.

SINGAPORE - April 19, 1999 -- Check Point Software Technologies Ltd.
(NASDAQ: CHKP) today announced that it has surpassed its 17,000 VPN-1
Gateway installation milestone, and has distributed millions of VPN
clients, extending its breakaway leadership in the growing VPN
market. Recent reports and client studies from leading market
research firms further support Check Point's VPN leadership with its
VPN-1 family of products.

"Client-to-site remote access for mobile and remote users as well as
total integration with overall network security and centralized
management are the key drivers behind the rapid growth in today's VPN
market," said Asheem Chandna, vice president of marketing and
business development for Check Point Software Technologies, Inc. "We
are seeing an accelerated deployment of our market-leading VPN-1
SecuRemote client, with over 1.5 million licensed clients distributed
in the last two quarters alone."

Check Point Software's present and future leadership in the VPN
market is further supported by data included in recent reports from
Gartner Group, Frost & Sullivan, International Data Corporation and
Infonetics Research, Inc. A 1998 IDC VPN report, for example, shows
Check Point Software with more than 65 percent of the VPN market in a
study of the Western European market.

Recent Check Point Software company data substantiates the trend
noted in the 1998 Infonetics Research VPN study that shows a growing
number of enterprises prefer the firewall for their VPN
implementation. Two years ago, approximately one out of 12 Check
Point FireWall-1 sales included a VPN; one year ago, the number was
one out of four; six months ago, the number was one out of three; and
now approximately one out of two FireWall-1 sales includes a VPN.
With the VPN-1 product family, Check Point Software is the only
vendor today to deliver a broad range of flexible software and
hardware VPN solutions that can be implemented across multiple
platforms, fully integrated into an enterprise's overall security
policy, and controlled from a central management console.

VPN technology is a key driver in implementing secure intranet,
Internet, and extranet connectivity and must be integrated into the
enterprise's overall security policy, according to research by the
Meta Group, a technology advisory service. The Meta Group research
also shows that an integrated VPN solution helps ensure the security,
scalability and reliability that customers require.

Check Point Software's growth in the VPN market is a continuation of
the company's legacy of overall enterprise security market leadership.

1) The most recent firewall market research report prepared by
International Data Corporation (IDC), stated that Check Point
"maintained its position as clear market leader... capturing a 34
percent market share [worldwide] among software firewall vendors."

2) Currently, Check Point Software has more than 73,000
installations, representing its complete product line, and more than
30,000 customers.

3) Check Point Software has established relationships with more than
1,000 channel partners worldwide, including distributors, integrators
and value added resellers, that effectively deliver its VPN and
enterprise security solutions to all size customers.

4) The world's leading managed service providers have already signed
on to use Check Point Software's enterprise security solutions to
deliver managed security services to their customers, including AT&T,
British Telecom, France Telecom, GTE Internetworking, MCI WorldCom
and NTT.

5) Check Point Software's Open Platform for Secure Enterprise
Connectivity (OPSEC) Alliance has grown to almost 200 partners in
just over two years. The OPSEC Alliance, provides the industry's
first enterprise-wide security framework to allow customers to easily
