"The Fortinet FortiGate IPS has a good interface and integration."
"The solution can scale."
"The most useful feature of FortiGate IPS for me is Application Control."
"I like the solution's stability."
"I like the solution's interface."
"Everything has been okay with the solution. We are using all of the features."
"You can scale the product."
"The stability of Palo Alto Networks Threat Prevention is good."
"It's very easy to use and configure. What is nice about Palo Alto is that even if you don't understand how to use it, you can just click on upload and upload everything that needs to be blocked."
"The prevention mechanisms and implementation are not easy."
"The interface could be better."
"The graphical interface could be improved."
"The interface and product support could use improvement."
"The most important feature to have is zero trust, which is lacking in Fortinet FortiGate IPS."
"I have contacted the support from Fortinet FortiGate IPS. The service was good but the speed could be better."
"The system can slow down when inspections are carried out."
"Right now, it's not really scalable, but it's okay for us. However, looking ahead to three years from now, we might have a problem with scalability. We foresee a little risk down the road. The stability is okay for now."
"The cost involves the price of the hardware, which is expensive. However, most of the Palo Alto solutions are expensive."
"The initial setup is complex."
"In terms of what needs improvement, the only thing I don't like is the support."
"The technology firewall anomaly network could stand improvement."
An intrusion prevention system (IPS) is a critical component of every network’s core security capabilities. It protects against known threats and zero-day attacks including malware and underlying vulnerabilities. Deployed inline as a bump in the wire, many IPS solutions perform deep packet inspection of traffic at wire speed, requiring high throughput and low latency.
Fortinet delivers IPS technology via the industry-validated and recognized FortiGate platform. FortiGate security processors provide unparalleled high performance, while FortiGuard Labs informs industry-leading threat intelligence, creating an IPS with proven success in protecting from known and zero-day threats. As a key component of the Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiGate IPS secures the entire end-to-end infrastructure without compromising performance.
Threats do not discriminate between application delivery vectors, requiring an approach that has full visibility into all application traffic, including SSL encrypted content, with full user context. Threat Prevention leverages the visibility of our next-generation firewall to inspect all traffic, automatically preventing known threats, regardless of port, protocol or SSL encryption.
