Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)

Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)

Whether part of a firewall solution or a separate standalone appliance, Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) technology is becoming an increasingly ubiquitous part of network security defenses. The protection offered by deep IPS inspection into network traffic is key to stopping today’s sophisticated and targeted attacks.

Fortinet, well known for its next-generation firewall (NGFW) solution, has built IPS technology as part of FortiGate firewalls for more than ten years. Fortinet customers expect and depend on high performance from FortiGate firewalls and FortiGate IPS benefits from this legacy, delivering pound-for-pound, the best IPS performance available in the market today. FortiGate IPS, following a different evolution path than traditional standalone IPS, innovates in ways that other standalone IPS products do not.
