IPS Default Protections?

Not applicable

I need a techincal answer for default protections with PAN IPS enabled.  If possible, think in a CP-to-PAN conversion.  I know...apples to oranges.

Jeff, I think you may be asking a question that has a moving target for an answer.  Maybe your best bet is to log into a PAN appliance and look at the signature list to see what the signature's default settings are.  Every sig has its own default action, which could be reset server, reset client, reset both, alert, drop, drop all packets.  These default actions are assigned by the PAN threat team when the new signature is added to the threat database.

Checkpoint IPS is known to trigger a very high rate false positives, which can severely limit its effectiveness.  While no vendor can guarantee zero false positives, I believe PAN does a much better job in this arena.  In part because of the efficiency that AppID gives you when married to IPS, the ease of use, and also in the implementation of the IPS signatures by PAN's threat team.
