Guide to Using Network IPS to Protect Against Next-Generation Cyber Threats
Network security threats are on the rise as cyber criminals continue to develop innovative ways to use compromised computers for their own personal gain. Organizations should understand the likely evolution of the threat landscape and develop an appropriate security strategy to address these evolving threats. This paper discusses how network Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) play a critical role in a layered approach to network security. The Top Layer IPS 5500 E-Series is presented along with specific guidelines for deploying network IPS with policies to provide optimum protection against the evolving threat landscape.
