Eliminate Intruders with Intrusion Prevention
The TippingPoint IPS is an in-line device that is inserted seamlessly and transparently into the network. As packets pass through the IPS, they are fully inspected to determine whether they are legitimate or malicious. This instantaneous form of protection is the most effective means of preventing attacks from ever reaching their targets.
The Tipping Point Intrusion Prevention System is a data-packet inspection system that looks at information packets sent through the Internet before they reach a company's network. The core component of the system is Tipping Point's Threat Suppression Engine (TSE) based on specialized hardware designed by the company. Using parallel processing, the TSE can apply thousands of checks to data packets in an average time of less than 215 microseconds.
The Tipping Point Intrusion Prevention System can be effective against a wide range of potential cyber-attacks including so-called "denial of service" attacks. Denial of service means that attackers attempt to shut down a website by overloading it with a huge traffic spike over a very brief time period. The system can also be used to enhance overall website performance by allowing users to prioritize among applications so that the most important are always kept up and running. The system also includes regular virus blocking updates.
TippingPoint's Intrusion Prevention Systems provide Application Protection, Performance Protection and Infrastructure Protection at gigabit speeds through total packet inspection. Application Protection capabilities provide fast, accurate, reliable protection from internal and external cyber-attacks.
An integral part of the TippingPoint solution is the Digital Vaccine® Service that delivers new filters on a weekly or even daily basis to maintain evergreen protection for the latest vulnerabilities, exploits, viruses and rogue applications.
