Fortinet IPS SOLUTIONS Integrated on FORTIGATE Carrier Appliances

Fortinet intrusion prevention technology, available in all FortiGate® and FortiWifi™ platforms, can be installed at the network edge or at the network core to protect critical business applications from both external and internal attacks. Backed by the automatic, real-time updates delivered by the FortiGuard® Intrusion Prevention Service, FortiGate IPS technology combines a customizable database of thousands of known threats to stop attacks that evade conventional firewall defenses, plus anomaly-based detection that enables the system to recognize threats for which no signature has yet been developed.

The combination of known and unknown threat prevention, plus tight integration with other Fortinet security technologies, enables FortiGate systems to stop the most damaging attacks at security check points regardless of whether the network is a wired, wireless, partner extranet, or branch office network connection.
