They can always find ways to improve these.""The user interface needs a bit of upgrading."

Overview

Cisco Stealthwatch Cloud improves security and incident response across the distributed network, from the private network and branch office to the public cloud. This solution addresses the need for digital businesses to quickly identify threats posed by their network devices and cloud resources, and to do so with minimal management, oversight, and security manpower.

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.
