A next generation intrusion prevention system (NGIPS) must provide an organization with the ability to identify both the applications and the users on its internal network. As with their predecessors, NGIPS must protect the enterprise user against threats. Designed to identify and block attacks against internal computing assets, a good NGIPS can provide temporary protection and relief from the immediate need to patch affected systems. The NGIPS must catch sophisticated attacks while producing as few false positives as possible.
NSS Labs' Next Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) Group Test evaluates market-leading NGIPS products on security effectiveness, performance, stability and reliability, and total cost of ownership (TCO). The NGIPS 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.
