Intrusion PreventionThe FortiGuard Intrusion Prevention Service provides Fortinet customers with the latest defenses against stealthy network-level threats. It uses a customizable database of more than 4000 known threats to enable FortiGate and FortiWiFi appliances to stop attacks that evade conventional firewall defenses. It also provides behavior-based heuristics, enabling the system to recognize threats for which no signature has yet been developed.
The combination of known and unknown threat prevention enables FortiGate systems to stop the most damaging attacks at the network border regardless of whether the network is a wired, wireless, partner extranet, or branch office network connection.
Additionally, the FortiGuard IPS provides more than 1000 application identity signatures for complete application control. IPS signature updates are provided quickly via the global FortiGuard distribution network.
Vulnerability Severity LevelFortiGuard IPS Event Name's Severity Level is mainly based on the ratings set forth by the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS).
