Today‚Äôs threat landscape is dynamic, evolving and includes organized groups creating sophisticated attacks that specifically target the security weaknesses of their business target. Enterprises want to protect their business against the multitude of threats while simplifying their security deployment and reducing their total security costs.

The Check Point IPS Software Blade provides complete, integrated, next-generation firewall intrusion prevention capabilities at multi-gigabit speeds, resulting in IPS security and performance. The tool provides complete threat coverage for clients, servers, OS and other vulnerabilities, malware/worm infections and more. The Multi-Tier Threat Detection Engine combines signatures, protocol validation, anomaly detection, behavioral analysis and other methods, including identity and application awareness, to provide the highest levels of network IPS protection. By quickly filtering 90 percent of incoming traffic without requiring deep inspection, the IPS engine inspects for attacks only on relevant sections of the traffic, thus reducing overhead and increasing accuracy.

Customers require the flexibility of the Software Blade Architecture to enable more security functions as needed, ultimately migrating toward a next-generation firewall type of deployment. The IPS Software Blade leverages a sophisticated engine that uses multiple methods of detection and analysis to detect bad traffic and IPS Update Service delivers leading IPS coverage including our industry leading coverage of Microsoft applications.

Deploying the IPS Software  Blade dramatically reduces the complexity of customer network security infrastructure by reducing their hardware footprint, rack space, cabling, cooling and power consumption.
