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

Security virtualization rapidly became the answer to our needs and only Fortinet could offer to virtualize all the essential security functions on a single platform that would scale to thousands of users. On top of the strong performance and flexibility of Fortinet's appliances, we were impressed with Fortinet's management and reporting tools, which will allow us to provide a unique Web interface to our customers so that they have easy control and visibility over their security service.
