Sophos Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)

Sophos Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) is an advanced firewall feature that protects your network. The downside is that IPS is a resource-intensive process, as it needs to match every packet with thousands of attack signatures.


To safeguard your corporate digital resources, we offer an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS). That protects the organization’s computers from a host of problems like spyware, virus or any other security-breach.  The IPS enables network access control that prevents any unauthorized intrusion into company’s network.


An Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) is a network security/threat prevention technology that examines network traffic flows. To detect and prevent vulnerability exploits. As an inline security component, the IPS must work efficiently to avoid degrading network performance. It must also work fast because exploits can happen in near real-time. The IPS must also detect and respond accurately, so as to eliminate threats and false positives.


Sophos uses Snort for its IPS functionality. Snort is a Cisco company, which gives it some serious commercial enterprise backing. The Snort IPS engine is one of the most sophisticated IPS systems available. In fact, it is the most widely deployed IPS worldwide. Just turning on the default IPS LAN to WAN profile for your internet break out will put it in a great position as far as protection is concerned.
