FortiGuard IPS Security Service

Vulnerabilities protection with integrated FortiGuard IPS

Overview

Overview

An intrusion prevention system (IPS) is a critical component of network security to protect

against new and existing vulnerabilities on devices and servers. To stop sophisticated threats and

provide a superior user experience, IPS technologies must inspect all traffic, including encrypted

traffic, with a minimal performance impact.

FortiGuard AI/ML-powered IPS provides near-real-time intelligence with thousands of intrusion

prevention rules to detect and block known and zero-day threats before they reach your devices.

Natively integrated across the Security Fabric, IPS delivers the industry’s highest performance

end-to-end protection.

FortiGuard IPS security service is available for NGFW (hardware, virtual machine, as-a-service)

FortiClient, FortiProxy, FortiADC and our Cloud Sandbox. Add our OT and IoT services to get

even more granular protection for operational technology and IoT devices.

FortiGuard IPS with NGFW offers the following:

1. Network-based virtual patching for business applications that are hard to patch or can’t

be patched. This ensures protection against vulnerabilities without interrupting

operations.

2. Accelerated FortiGuard IPS capabilities thanks to Fortinet’s purpose-built content

processor (CP9) on the FortiGate, to deliver the industry’s best IPS price and

performance.

3. Extended IPS to additional capabilities like SSL inspection (including TLS 1.3) to detect

hidden malware, ransomware, and other HTTPS-borne attacks.

4. New in Dedicated IPS – end-to-end updates for dedicated IPS administration, designed

for finance and other regulated deployments, enabling migration from separate

hardware to NGFW while preserving operations and compliance practices.
