Reducing costs by consolidating multiple independent solutions. By integrating an IPS Software Blade into your existing firewall, you save on:
Facilitating reduced latency
Providing cohesive security policy
Offering common management and training
Making IPS deployment easier
Scan and secure SSL/TLS encrypted traffic passing through the gateway. When traffic is passed through, the gateway decrypts the traffic with the sender’s public key, inspects and protects, then re-encrypts, sending the newly encrypted content to the receiver.
Granularly define exceptions for SSL/TLS inspection to protect user privacy and comply with corporate policy. Some encrypted content passing through the gateway should not be inspected, and therefore can be bypassed with a simple administrator policy definition.
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.
