The Intrusion Prevention app is a plugin to the Intrusion Detection system. The service dynamically creates firewall rules (iptables) to block IP packets if a packet stream matches a known attack signature. Signatures are provided by the intrusion detection app, containing over 1000 known attack vectors. An additional 8,000-10,000 signatures are available (and continually updated) via the IDS update subscription from ClearCenter (app available in the Marketplace).
