The FortiGuard Intrusion Prevention Service (IPS) provides Fortinet customers with the latest defenses against stealthy network-level threats. It uses a customizable database of more than 5,100 known threats to enable FortiGate and FortiWiFi appliances to stop attacks that evade conventional firewall defenses. It also provides behavior-based heuristics, enabling the system to recognize threats for which no signature has yet been developed. The combination of known and unknown threat prevention enables FortiGate systems to stop the most damaging attacks at the network border regardless of whether the network is wired or wireless, or whether it is at corporate headquarters or a branch office. IPS signature updates are provided via the global FortiGuard Network. Learn More

Only a few vendors can provide security appliances with such high firewall performance. We were very happy with the high level of security, service reliability and cost-effectiveness provided by Fortinet's solutions, so it was a natural progression to look at Fortinet's recently introduced enterprise security appliance. The tests conducted on the FortiGate-3810A proved that Fortinet's new system addressed our high network bandwidth and security performance requirements.
