How to Configure the Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)

  • Last updated on

Enabling IPS can decrease the overall throughput of your system. By default, all access rules use the default IPS policy. For specific access rules, you can disable IPS.

Before You Begin

To use IPS, make sure that you have a valid Energize Updates subscription. 

Enable IPS 

  1. Go to FIREWALL > Intrusion Prevention.
  2. In the Intrusion Prevention section, set Enable Intrusion Prevention System to Yes.

    These options can decrease the performance of the firewall.
  3. (Optional) If required, you can choose to enable HTML Inspection.

  4. For Default IPS Policy, select either Report Mode or Enforce Mode.

    • Report Mode – This mode logs the occurrence of a threat.
    • Enforce Mode – This mode blocks the traffic.
