Trend Micro TippingPoint Threat Protection System Valuable Features
In TippingPoint, the IPS signatures and the IPS database are much better than what is commonly available. TippingPoint is more intelligent. It can work out bypass models if the device goes bad suddenly for any reason. It actually goes into a bridge mode where it parses from the data and finds where the problem is with the software security. We configure it like this so that if that happens, we immediately switch on the IPS in the firewall because technically the scenario is like that in the gateway. We first put on the firewall and the connection goes from there before going to the internal network or LC. We put the IPS in between the perimeter firewall, in an internal port.
One of the major reasons for choosing TippingPoint is that it acquires the intelligence of the IPS signatures. It is the first IPS solution database we tried. We actually detect a lot of intrusions not detectable by other solutions. This is an important point.
Another feature is that it can work in a base mode if the device goes down. Then, even if we do not do a modification into the network to get it working, you just switch on the IPS in the firewall and the device will pass on all those packets to the underlying devices. This way the operation doesn't stop and in the meantime, you can fix the problem.
