Intrusion Prevention Systems. Do we still need them in our network designs? Firewall technology has advanced so much, is the IPS a product of a bygone era? Not at all! As a matter of fact, as firewall technologies have advanced, so have threats. Now more than ever, we need the IPS to enhance firewall protection by looking deeper into the packets to provide real-time IPv4 and IPv6 protection against worms, Trojans and exploits against application and OS vulnerabilities. The real trick is to have the IPS capabilities hardware accelerated to provide maximum performance, and not negatively affect firewall or VPN throughput.
Join Cisco’s TechWiseTV Chief Geek Jimmy Ray Purser as he hosts this workshop on Cisco IPS technology, with special guest Stijn Vanveerdeghem, Cisco Technical Marketing Engineer. We’ll start by taking a look at how traffic flows thru the ASA to IPS modules in various modes. Then we’ll dive deep into deploying virtual sensors, Global Correlation, Zero Day anomaly detection and IPS policy provisioning – all to enable you to assign IPS policies based on risk, instead of tuning individual signatures.
Cisco IPS does so much more then help you pass an audit! How do you make the world’s most proven firewall better? With the industry’s most effective IPS and guaranteed coverage to offer the most effective security solution in the industry to significantly decrease business risk and address regulatory compliance. Bring your questions…experts will be available for live Q&A.
