Palo Alto Intrusion Prevention System (IPS): An Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is a network security technology originally built for detecting vulnerability exploits against a target application or computer. Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) extended IDS solutions by adding the ability to block threats in addition to detecting them and has become the dominant deployment option for IDS/IPS technologies.
An IDS needs only to detect threats and as such is placed out-of-band on the network infrastructure. Meaning that it is not in the true real-time communication path between the sender and receiver of information. Rather, IDS solutions will often take advantage of a TAP or SPAN port. To analyze a copy of the inline traffic stream (and thus ensuring that IDS does not impact inline network performance).
Advanced attacks on your network use a combination of application vectors and exploits. Palo Alto Networks’ next-generation firewalls with IPS capabilities arm you with a proven approach to stopping these attacks.
Vulnerability exploits, buffer overflows, port scans, and exploit kits are detected and stopped using signatures, heuristics, and statistical anomaly detection. In addition, Palo Alto Networks delivers predictable IPS performance. To you through hardware acceleration, a uniform signature format, and single-pass software architecture.
Our mobile security service secures the mobile workforce with next-generation security, providing protection against targeted cyber-attacks. And evasive application traffic, phishing, malicious websites, command and control traffic, and known and unknown threats. Furthermore, We maintain visibility in application traffic, enforces security policies from any location, and provide protection anywhere with flexible deployment options.
