The speed at which threats are evolving is unprecedented, and with the valuable data they contain, your network and servers are prime targets for attack. Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) are ideally suited to detect and stop attacks that originate over the network, including those focused on application and OS vulnerabilities.
With an effective IPS in place, you can easily virtually patch and protect vulnerable systems from known, unknown, zero-day, and ransomware vulnerabilities like WCRY (WannaCry). IPS gives you the flexibility to deploy a patch when one becomes available and suits your business needs. It also protects you even before a patch exists, as is the case with end-of support systems and applications.
