Securing high-speed networks without sacrificing performance

Intrusion prevention systems (IPS) can help enterprises meet compliance requirements and protect valuable business data, but network administrators cannot tolerate the negative impact many traditional security appliances have on the network. The solution enterprises require merges network performance and availability with advanced threat protection.

The Proventia GX6116 offers the best of both worlds - network performance and ahead-of-the-threat protection.

Engineered with today's three network pain points in mind - Performance, Availability and Reliability - the Proventia Network IPS GX6116 is designed to secure the network, maximize uptime and optimize throughput.
