Check Point Software Technologies Ltd. would like to assure its
customers, security experts, and others that there is no, and never
has been, an "agreement" or relationship between Check Point Software
and the Mossad, or any other branch of the Israeli government or military,
to create a "back door" into Check Point products.

These are false and malicious rumors that have been circulating
since Check Point became successful, specifically targeted at
damaging the company, and they are always from "anonymous sources."
Check Point takes these rumors seriously, and if anyone has information
on the source/s of these rumors, we would be very interested in hearing
from you, so that we can take appropriate action. 

Check Point FireWall-1 is the most widely installed network security
solution in the world and no customer has ever reported a security
breach of this nature.  Check Point FireWall-1's customer list includes
accounts with the highest level of security consciousness such as U.S.
national and foreign governments, the world's leading financial institutions,
telcos and ISPs.  All Check Point FireWall-1 customers benefit from the
product's patented Stateful Inspection technology ensuring the highest
level of enterprise security available today.
