Pros
"FortiGate IPS is really easy to use.

It is quite easy to manage.""We like FortiGate's website change feature.""I have found the decryption of Fortinet FortiGate IPS very good. It's called SSL deep inspection, it's working very well. This is how you decrypt access and traffic, and it is through the IPS antivirus center. Additionally, the UI is user-friendly.""I like its ability to prevent external intrusion into our database. It's so fun."

Cons
"It would be better if they had a dashboard where we could see what attacks were happening. It would be good to see who's trying to get into our network.""The IPS monitoring can be improved.""Right now, it's not really scalable, but it's okay for us. However, looking ahead to three years from now, we might have a problem with scalability. We foresee a little risk down the road. The stability is okay for now.""The web filtering categories could improve in Fortinet FortiGate IPS. There are too many websites under the category of Unknown and the other categories are not featuring all the necessary sites.""I have used technical support and they could improve.""Its performance can be better. We have had performance issues in the past, but we sometimes tend to find that it is more related to what we do in our network than anything else. It is quite a good product, and there isn't much to improve.""FortiGate's logging and reporting could be improved. I would also like to see Fortinet add a guest management portal.""The most important feature to have is zero trust, which is lacking in Fortinet FortiGate IPS."

"We need more integration. It would be good if Azure IPS and TippingPoint IPS and other products from Trend Micro like their DBI and IWSVA could talk between each other.""It integrates well but it takes time.""The solution is pretty expensive."

    Overview

    An intrusion prevention system (IPS) is a critical component of every network’s core security capabilities. It protects against known threats and zero-day attacks including malware and underlying vulnerabilities. Deployed inline as a bump in the wire, many IPS solutions perform deep packet inspection of traffic at wire speed, requiring high throughput and low latency.

    Fortinet delivers IPS technology via the industry-validated and recognized FortiGate platform. FortiGate security processors provide unparalleled high performance, while FortiGuard Labs informs industry-leading threat intelligence, creating an IPS with proven success in protecting from known and zero-day threats. As a key component of the Fortinet Security Fabric, FortiGate IPS secures the entire end-to-end infrastructure without compromising performance.

    Keep ahead of the latest threats and protect your critical data with ongoing threat prevention and analysis.
