In this high-paced digital age, attacks on your networks come from all fronts such as application vectors and exploits. IPS is one of the three featured technologies of Palo Alto Networks. This technology does not only prevent but also detects all forms of intrusions and exploits in the network. Instead of just simply detecting the threat, this solution from Palo Alto works on prevention. It takes on a dual approach: apps you don’t want or consider harmful are blocked with App-ID while apps you allow are continually scanned for vulnerability threats. The Intrusion Prevention System features blocks known and unknown network and application-layer vulnerability exploits, buffer overflows, and port scans. In essence, it monitors the flow of traffic in the network from possible hacking or malicious threats. It gives the administrator full control of the network.
