The Stonesoft Virtual IPS Appliance is a ready-made, easy-to-add network Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) appliance for demanding virtual environments. The solution protects applications and operating systems from threats against vulnerabilities in the virtual environment.
Using multiple analysis techniques, the Stonesoft IPS protects virtual hosts from network attacks, detects and prevents network traffic abuse, including Denial-of-Service (DoS) attacks and communications from unwanted applications, like P2P and streaming media.
The Stonesoft Virtual IPS provides flexible deployment options for physical and virtual network environments, in both inline IPS and IDS modes, without network topology changes. With a Layer-2 Firewall, the Stonesoft IPS allows easy and cost-effective firewall-like network segmentation and access control.
The Stonesoft SSL/TLS decryption and inspection feature gives network security administrators an efficient tool to monitor traffic inside the encrypted HTTPS within virtual network infrastructure. SSL/TLS inspection is available for Virtual IPS appliances for server-side protection.
The Stonesoft Virtual IPS Appliance is managed with the Stonesoft Management Center. The Stonesoft Management Center allows unified management of all Stonesoft Security appliances, both virtual and physical. Corporate security policy can be consistently enforced throughout the whole network. This brings organizations significant cost savings, flexibility and sustainability.
