Why vCloud Tech?FortiGuard IPS provide Protect Against Known and Zero-day Threats

FortiGuard IPS is a robust and reliable intrusion prevention appliance. It offers unparalleled performance, breadth, and depth of security coverage provided by FortiGuard Labs Threat Intelligence. An intrusion prevention system (IPS) is an essential security element that helps your network defend against current and emerging security vulnerabilities affecting servers and devices. The IPS system monitors all network traffic, including encrypted data. In addition, it uses deep packet inspection technology to examine each packet and identify suspicious activity. Fortiguard allows the IPS system to block malicious attacks before they reach your network.

Powered by FortiGuard AI/ML, IPS provides near real-time intelligence, including hundreds of intrusion prevention rules, to identify and block known and zero-day threats before they reach your device. Natively integrated into the Security Fabric, IPS offers the industry’s most potent end-to-end protection. FortiGuard IPS security services are available for NGFW (hardware, virtual machine, as-a-service), FortiClient, Forti Proxy, FortiADC, and Cloud Sandbox. So, Combine our OT and IoT services to secure your operational technology and IoT devices further professionally.

An overview of Fortinet IPS. An intrusion prevention system (IPS) is critical to any network’s core security capabilities. Protect against known threats and zero-day attacks, including malware and potential vulnerabilities.


Fortinet, known for its next-generation firewall (NGFW) solutions, has been building IPS technology as part of its FortiGate firewalls for over a decade. However, unlike other firewall vendors who offer minimal IPS capabilities, FortiGate IPS are advanced.

The FortiOS Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) combines signature detection and prevention with low latency and high reliability. Intrusion Prevention allows you to create multiple IPS sensors containing a complete signature-based configuration. You can then apply any IPS sensor to any security policy.

Internet Protocol (IP) addresses allow computers to send and receive information. There are four types of IP addresses: public, private, static and dynamic.

WatchGuard recommends enabling IPS for policies that handle traffic to and from Internet hosts. For example, he doesn’t need to send Branch Office VPN policies to trusted sites or enable his IPS for traffic between trusted hosts on the internal network.

 Intrusion prevention systems scan forwarded network traffic for malicious activity and known attack patterns. The IPS engine analyzes the network traffic and compares the bit stream against an internal signature database for available attack patterns.
