Internet Security Systems' Proventía intrusion prevention appliances deliver preemptive protection for networks. These devices stop malicious Internet attacks before they impact your organization—the only effective way to preserve network availability, reduce the burden on your IT resources and prevent security breaches.

The Network Intrusion Prevention Appliance course provides concepts, methods and practices necessary to successfully manage the Proventía G400/G2000. The course focuses on hands-on exercises supported by demonstrations, presentations and lecture. Starting with an introduction to intrusion protection, students learn about the appliance's operational modes and how to properly deploy the appliance in a high availability environment. Students also learn how to install, manage and configure G400/G2000 appliances, and how to monitor and analyze security events using both the SiteProtector Console and Proventía Manager.
