Intrusion Prevention Systems detect or prevent attempts to exploit weaknesses in vulnerable systems or applications, protecting you in the race to exploit the latest breaking threat. Check Point IPS protections in our Next Generation Firewall are updated automatically. Whether the vulnerability was released years ago, or a few minutes ago, your organization is protected.

Timely IPS Updates

Real-Time Protections: IPS is constantly updated with new defenses against emerging threats. Many of the IPS protections are pre-emptive, providing defenses before vulnerabilities are discovered or exploits are even created.

Microsoft Vulnerability Coverage: Check Point is ranked #1 in Microsoft threat coverage, including preemptive protections against emerging vulnerabilities and exploits.

Virtual Patching

Patching is an incomplete security measure, which can leave your network open for attack. By taking a more comprehensive approach, which combines robust IPS functionality with a concerted patching strategy, network administrators can better equip themselves to handle ‘Patch Tuesdays’ and secure the network between upgrades and patches.

Efficient and Flexible Deployment
  • Predefined recommended profiles allows out-of-the-box use and are tuned to optimize security

  • Define signature activation rules that match the security needs of your network assets

  • Optional detect-only mode sets all protections to only detect to allow you to evaluate your profile
