Availability and resilience

Availability and resilience
Guaranteed availability "Availability
There are two aspects of system availability:

1. Network uptime intent
- Check Point strives to provide service uptime that is equal or greater than 99.999% calculated per calendar month.
- System availability is calculated as ratio of total expected uptime per month minus reported downtime, with the exceptions for the below excused outages.
Note that uptime is not guaranteed or subject to credits.

2. Latency
- To insure latency that is less than 100ms.
- Measured between Capsule Cloud serving gateway and the end user.
Note that content download from the original content server is not included in the latency measurement.
Approach to resilience Cloud based infrastructure has physical resiliency, scaling and geographical resiliency built in.
