Description
The Network Intrusion Prevention System (NIPS) automatically blocks malicious attacks while preserving network bandwidth and availability. The appliances are purpose-built, Layer 2 network security appliances that you can deploy either at the gateway or the network to block intrusion attempts, denial of service (DoS) attacks, malicious code, backdoors, spyware, peer-to-peer applications, and a growing list of threats without requiring extensive network reconfiguration.
