A breach prevention system (BPS) is an integrated solution that leverages multiple modern technologies such as cloud and on-premises sandboxing, emulation, and machine learning. These technologies are leveraged in conjunction with traditional deep inspection and/or access control blocking technologies such as next generation firewalls (NGFWs) and next generation intrusion prevention systems (NGIPS) that act as enforcement points. In addition, most BPS have integrated endpoint technology, which enables them to block attacks that would not otherwise be seen by a network device.
NSS Labs' Data Center Intrusion Prevention System (BPS) Group Test evaluates market-leading BPS solutions on security effectiveness, performance, stability and reliability, and total cost of ownership (TCO). The BPS Group Test provides individual Test Reports and Comparative Reports that enable enterprises to make informed decisions to evolve and rationalize their cyber risk programs.
Individual Test Reports
Test Reports provide detailed analysis for each product tested. Data from these reports is used in the NSS Labs Comparative Reports.
Test Reports enable enterprise security teams to understand the impact of features and limitations across different products. These reports are used to shortlist products for further evaluation and proof-of concept testing.
