Solving the Performance Hurdle for Integrated IPS: New Check Point Technologies Enable a Full-Function, Integrated Intrusion Prevention System Without Compromise to Performance or Security
Whenever IT performance barriers fall, there is a discovery phase as organizations learn they can solve formally unsolvable roadblocks to critical services. This white paper describes such an event for network security. For the first time, new processing technologies for a network gateway have enabled a full-function integrated Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) coupled with the next generation firewall-without performance limitations. These performance-enabling innovations for IPS have arrived just in time, for unpredictable, rapidly changing security threats are demanding closer integration of IPS and firewall functionality to keep networks secure.
