PD22894 - Host Intrusion Prevention 8.0 for ePO 4.5 Product Guide
Network IPS signatures
Network IPS protection also resides on individual systems. All data that flows between the
protected system and the rest of the network is examined for an attack. When an attack is
identified, the offending data is discarded or blocked from passing through the system.
• Protect systems located downstream in a network segment.
• Protect servers and the systems that connect to them.
• Protect against network denial-of-service attacks and bandwidth-oriented attacks that deny
or degrade network traffic.
Host Intrusion Prevention contains a default list of a small number of network IPS signatures
for Windows platforms. You can edit the severity level, log status, and client rule creation setting
of these signatures, but you cannot presently add custom network signatures. The list of
signatures is updated if needed whenever you install a content update.
