nGuard continues to enhance its Managed Intrusion Prevention Services (MIPS) with the announcement of support for Cisco FirePOWER™ IPS version 5.4. Cisco FirePOWER™ is built upon IPS technology acquired by Cisco in 2013. Since the acquisition, Cisco has released several new IPS solutions. These include integrating FirePOWER™ into its acclaimed ASA firewalls, releasing new FirePOWER™ – based network IPS appliances, as well as FirePOWER™ based Virtual Machine (VM) solutions.
“We continue to be impressed with each new release of Cisco’s FirePOWER™ IPS technology,” states Derek Burcham, Team Leader of nGuard’s Managed Security Services division. “With FirePOWER™, we’re able to more easily manage our clients’ various IPS protection points, including dedicated FirePOWER™ appliances, FirePOWER™ VMs, or the ASA Firewall with FirePOWER™ IPS. The level of customization it provides allows nGuard to create extremely secure, customized policies. This provides our clients with a very high degree of protection.”
nGuard supports both Cisco and Intel/McAfee based IPS solutions as part of its Managed Intrusion Prevention Services (MIPS). These solutions were identified as the top-2 IPS technologies in Gartner Group’s 2015 Magic Quadrant.
