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.
