    Overview

    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.

    Online attacks and malware continue to evolve, using sophisticated methods to exploit victims. WatchGuard Intrusion Prevention Service (IPS) provides a preemptive approach to network security that adds an essential layer of threat detection and prevention. IPS protects your network from a wide range of malicious activities, including SQL injections, cross-site scripting, and buffer overflows.
