Juniper Networks IDP Solution Wins 'NSS Approved' Certification
IDP 600F Appliance Demonstrates Performance, Security and Usability Excellence in Stringent Testing
- Performance - The IDP 600F is rated at 500 Mbps when deployed in-line, and performance at almost all levels of testing was very good, with 100% of all attacks being detected and blocked under all but the most extreme load conditions.
- Security Effectiveness - Even when pushed beyond its limits, the IDP 600F continued to block all malicious traffic successfully. Signature recognition was excellent at 97%, and with the HTTP server-to-client signatures enabled, the attack recognition rose to 100%. All false negative exploits thrown at the IDP 600F were caught, indicating that the signatures look for the vulnerability, not the specific exploit itself.
- Usability - The management solution for the IDP 600F performed significantly better that others tested when under heavy attack, with little or no interruption to communication between sensor and management server. Policy management was found to be very strong with the ability to configure individual rules within a policy for individual sensors.
- Reporting and Forensics - The wealth of useful reporting and forensic tools in IDP 600F takes IDP beyond pure intrusion prevention and into the realm of policy enforcement. The product's Enterprise Security Profiler helps administrators monitor the network security posture by collecting forensic data on network traffic and storing that data to form a network profile.
