Cloud Firewall provides an intrusion prevention system (IPS) to defend against intrusions in real time.


  1. Log on to the Cloud Firewall console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, choose Security Policies > Intrusion Prevention.
  3. In the Threat Engine Settings section, make the following configurations:
    • Select Traffic Control Mode to block malicious traffic.
      Note By default, Monitoring Mode is selected. TAGIn this mode, Cloud Firewall only monitors malicious traffic and reports alarms, but does not block the traffic.
    • Enable Threat Intelligence to receive real-time threat intelligence from the entire network.
    • In the Basic Protection section, click Customize to configure basic protection policies against different attacks such as password cracking and unauthorized command execution.
    • In the Virtual Patches section, enable Patches to obtain installation-free patches that help defend against the latest vulnerabilities.
    Note You can view intrusion prevention details by choosing Traffic Analysis > Traffic Blocked by IPS.
