Intrusion Prevention (IPS)

Protect against known, unknown, and undisclosed vulnerabilities in your network

The cyber threat landscape

As threats continue to evolve in sophistication and speed, enterprises need effective, flexible, comprehensive security that meets the security and performance requirements of their hybrid networks.

Protect against the full range of threats in your network

Only complete visibility into all network traffic and activity will keep your network security ahead of targeted attacks that bypass traditional controls, exploit network vulnerabilities, and ransom or steal sensitive data, communications, and intellectual property.

Trend Micro™ TippingPoint™, an XGen™ security solution, provides best-of-breed intrusion prevention to protect against the full range of threats at wire speed anywhere on your network to protect your critical data and reputation.

Real-time security
