IPS policies



Prevent network attacks using IPS rules. The firewall matches signatures with traffic patterns and takes the action specified in the rule. The IPS signatures identify threats and specify a recommended action to take when the firewall encounters matching traffic. Predefined and or custom signatures can be used. IPS protection is turned off by default.


  1. Go to PROTECT > Rules and policies > Firewall rules.
  2. Open your LAN to WAN or WAN to LAN firewall rule.
  3. Go to Other security features > Detect and prevent exploits (IPS).
  4. Ensure that Detect and prevent exploits (IPS) is not set to None.
  5. Click Save.
