            Compatibility Notes Cisco IPS technology is engineered to prevent malicious activity, through the entire attack lifecycle and at all layers of the application stack.

            Built on advanced Cisco security and network intelligence, modular inspection capabilities can detect and prevent threats to the entire network stack, from Address Resolution Protocol (ARP) to complex enterprise level applications. Cisco IPS technology protects against advanced application evasions and can normalize even the most fragmented of network traffic.

            Cisco IPS provides adaptive vulnerability and anomaly detection. Cisco has focused its signatures on the potential abuse of vulnerabilities, so your ability to detect threats remains intact, even as exploits change. For emerging "zero-day" threats, a Cisco IPS sensor learns about your network, detects both protocol and behavioral anomalies, and can mitigates attacks without a signature update.

            Cisco IPS led the IPS industry into the use of reputation feeds through the use of Global Correlation. Global Correlation harnesses the power of Cisco Security Intelligence Operations, the world's largest threat monitoring network, to achieve unprecedented threat management efficacy. Global threat information is turned into actionable intelligence, such as reputation scores, can also be used for black listing and driving dynamic threat responses. Using Global Correlation, Cisco IPS can stop twice the amount of malicious activity that traditional signature-only IPS technologies can, and with fewer false positives. Cisco Global Correlation updates every five minutes and thus the Cisco IPS can also adjust to changing threat conditions 100 times faster than signature updates alone.

            Cisco IPS sensors provide you with the most knowledge of potential threat impact by calculating a real-time measurement of risk for every event and a post attack follow up analysis of the remaining threat. An adaptive multidimensional algorithm combines attack and attacker details with live global and network knowledge to produce a calibrated risk measurement which drives a unique response according to attacker and target visibility.

            Cisco IPS sensors have the richest set of response actions for flexible and precise response policies. You can tailor your IPS policy to each network environment and threat-directly dropping packets, terminating sessions, and rate limiting, or implementing access control and rate limiting on routers and other security appliances throughout the network.

            Cisco IPS threat rating assesses post-response residual risk, enabling incident handlers to focus on the highest-impact events. Risk measurements are updated following an active response to prioritize events with the greatest potential to impact your business.

            Cisco IPS sensors act with the deepest network and device level visibility, recording live, in-depth information on every alert, enabling incident handlers to rapidly diagnose and resolve events. Context data and session logging provide packet-level detail before, during, and after each event.
