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
The FortiGuard Premier Signature Service provides enhanced threat analysis support. You can submit requests for custom IPS signatures on a 24x7 basis for prioritized support with guaranteed response times. Learn More
We think highly of the FortiGate appliances ability to provide various security functions within one appliance, rather than forcing us to implement specific security software one by one. In addition, we liked its clear fee structure for initial licensing based on an annual per store cost. The deployment of FortiGate appliances enabled us to share a huge amount of data in a secure manner. We plan to drive further development, including a management system to understand all aspects of our outlets, such as photo shooting status, the delivery of commercial messages to our customers to highlight our outlets and the delivery of streaming images to our employees as part of training. Furthermore, we will consider developing a dedicated store system tailored for digital photography, rather than use a common POS system for retail outlets modified for photo studios.
