Here's a nice article talking about how Check Point looks beyond the perimeter. I'm very familiar with Checkpoint's Firewall-1 offering, and what I see happening is that Firewalls (especially statefull firewalls) have headed toward commodity items (at least they are going in that direction) and Checkpoint's pricing isn't going there fast enough. They are trying to stave things off by adding certain Intrusion Prevention Features and better management, and this talks about adding integrating additional web security to it's product. Should be interesting to see how things scale out in a couple of years.
