Cisco is now shipping its highest ever performing intrusion prevention system to tackle enterprise security threats.

The Cisco IPS 4270 sensor appliance is designed for media-rich and transaction-heavy networking environments, able to tackle apps such as voice, video and social networking tools with a 4Gbps (gigabits per second) maximum throughput.

For networks with heavy transaction-based traffic, such as e-commerce, point-of-sale, instant messaging, and voice over IP, the new appliance provides a throughput of up 2Gbps, and supports as many as 20,000 transactions per second, said Cisco.

Cisco said the new appliance enables IT organisations to "virtualise" both inspection and policy information, allowing intrusion prevention services to be woven into the overall datacentre system.
