The new Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) certification from ICSA Labs is an important IPS certification, is an addition to our existing Firewall certification, from ICSA Labs.
Azure Firewall Premium SKU is a managed, cloud-based network security service that protects your Azure Virtual Network resources. It provides advanced threat protection that meets the needs of highly sensitive and regulated environments and includes Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and TLS inspection capabilities.
ICSA Labs provides credible third-party testing and certification of security and health IT products, as well as network-connected devices. This includes certification of network intrusion prevention systems.
ICSA Labs Network Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) security certification test cycle includes Azure Firewall protection against exploits aimed at approximately 100 high severity vulnerabilities in enterprise software. Because real world attacks do not happen on a quiescent network, ICSA Labs tests with an appropriate level of background traffic using various mixes of enterprise network traffic. The test included evasion techniques, platform security of the product itself, logging, secure administration, and administrative functions.
Azure Firewall is the first cloud firewall service to attain the ICSA Labs Corporate Certification for both Firewall and IPS services. You can access the complete Azure Firewall Premium IPS certification report from information here.
