Cons
"Integration with the antivirus companion Webroot is not seamless on Mac computers.""Its performance can be better.

It is quite a good product, and there isn't much to improve.""The IPS monitoring can be improved.""The solution has limited scalability.""The user interface needs a bit of upgrading.""They can probably improve the reporting feature. Reporting and report alerting are the main key features of this solution. They can always find ways to improve these.""I would like to be able to generate reports about the protections that we have. I would like a report feature.""The most important feature to have is zero trust, which is lacking in Fortinet FortiGate IPS."

More Fortinet FortiGate IPS Cons »

"I'm not aware of any lacking features.""The price of Splunk UBA is too high.""Currently, a lot of network operations need improvement. We still need people to handle incidents.

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.

It detects insider threats and external attacks using out-of-the-box purpose-built that helps organizations find known, unknown and hidden threats, but extensible unsupervised machine learning (ML) algorithms, provides context around the threat via ML driven anomaly correlation and visual mapping of stitched anomalies over various phases of the attack lifecycle (Kill-Chain View). It uses a data science driven approach that produces actionable results with risk ratings and supporting evidence that increases SOC efficiency and supports bi-directional integration with Splunk Enterprise for data ingestion and correlation and with Splunk Enterprise Security for incident scoping, workflow management and automated response.
