  • Should I enable IPS Software Blade on the VSX Gateway?

    IPS Software Blade should be enabled based on your needs.

    For more information, refer to IPS product page.


  • How do I update the IPS Software Blade?

    The updates for IPS Software Blade are downloaded to the Security Management Server / Domain Management Server and then are transferred to the VSX Gateway during policy installation.

    IPS Software Blade update on the Security Management Server / Domain Management Server can always be performed manually, or can be scheduled in SmartDashboard.


  • Are there special instructions for IPS Geo Protection?
    • In R80.10 and higher versions, IPS blade does not have to be enabled (Geo policy is installed as a part of the Access Policy). For R80.10 and higher VSX gateways, the activation mode of Geo policy assigned to VSX gateway (Context of VS0) has to be either in "Monitor Only" or "Active". This is required for the IPS Geo Protection updates to work on Virtual Systems (VS). 

    • In R77.30 and lower versions, for the IPS Geo Protection updates to work correctly,
      the following has be configured in the VSX Security Gateway object itself (context of VS0):

      1. IPS blade has to be enabled
      2. IPS profile has to be assigned, in which the "Action" of Geo Protection is set to either "Detect", or "Prevent"
