Organizations today are in the constant shadow of evolving and sophisticated cyber threats. In some cases, these threats are not only more complex than those of the past, but they are also targeted and rely on newly discovered vulnerabilities or exploits. In other cases, threats take advantage of older vulnerabilities that you thought were long forgotten. Safeguarding your network assets and data from such threats requires detailed visibility into all your network layers and resources. It requires comprehensive, up-to-date security intelligence, and a dynamic approach that uses awareness and automation to adapt to new threats, new vulnerabilities, and everyday network changes.
These vastly different threats require a multi-pronged approach to security. Organizations need robust security solutions at the edge of and inside their networks to prevent malicious attacks from getting to critical resources. They also need comprehensive threat intelligence to protect against known, unknown, and undisclosed vulnerabilities.
Trend Micro TippingPoint Threat Protection System (TPS) is a powerful network security platform that offers comprehensive threat protection against known and undisclosed vulnerabilities with high accuracy. TippingPoint TPS provides industry-leading coverage across different threat vectors from advanced threats, like malware and phishing, with extreme flexibility and high performance. The TippingPoint TPS uses a combination of technologies, including deep packet inspection, threat reputation, URL reputation, and advanced malware analysis on a flowby-flow basis—to detect and prevent attacks on the network. The TippingPoint TPS enables enterprises to take a proactive approach to security, providing comprehensive contextual awareness and deeper analysis of network traffic. This complete contextual awareness, combined with the threat intelligence from Trend Micro™ TippingPoint Digital Vaccine Labs (DVLabs) provides the visibility and agility necessary to keep pace with today’s dynamic, evolving enterprise and data center networks.
Pre-emptive threat prevention
TippingPoint TPS, deployed inline, has the ability to inspect and block all directions of traffic (inbound, outbound, and lateral) in real time to protect against known, unknown, and undisclosed vulnerabilities.
Threat insight and prioritization
Visibility and insight is crucial to making the best security policy decisions. TippingPoint TPS delivers complete visibility across your network and provides the insight and context needed to measure and drive threat prioritization.
Real-time enforcement and remediation
Defend the network from the edge, to the data center, and to the cloud with realtime, inline enforcement and automated remediation of vulnerable systems. TippingPoint TPS achieves a new level of inline, real-time protection, providing proactive network security for today’s and tomorrow’s real-world network traffic and data centers. The Threat Suppression Engine (TSE) architecture performs high-speed, inline deep packet traffic inspection, and the purpose-built appliance’s modular design enables the convergence of additional security services.
With flexible deployment options that are easy to set up and manage through a centralized management interface, TippingPoint TPS provides immediate and ongoing threat protection with outof-the-box recommended settings.
Go beyond next-gen IPS with real-time detection, enforcement, and remediation

*AWS infrastructure may restrict sustained throughput rates to lower amounts. This is specific to the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2) instance type. For more information, please contact AWS. Note: We test using our recommended default policy with representative traffic mixes. Your deployment may vary—infrastructure changes, policy, or changes from the representative traffic mix may impact your results. Additionally, your EC2 instance type may enforce sustained throughput restrictions.
