Quarantine functions

Not applicable

I have  a customer who is familiar with ISS Proventias.  This customer is trying to match capabilities of the ISS to PA.   I have answered all his questiosn/ matchups with IPS rule to a Vulnerability Protection policy+ Malware/Spyware policy, but I am not sur ehow to address this quarantine question with him.

In the ISS Proventia, you can set a time limit to block traffic hitting an IPS rule, "quarantining" for a period of time.   I can't seem to find this capabiity in the actions, etc.

Please advise!

You mean like a ratelimiting but for the Threat Prevention functions?

IMHO that doesnt make sense... you want to allow bad traffic but block the bad traffic for lets say 5 minutes and then allow the bad traffic again?

Or could you perhaps describe the usercase in more detail?

cwilliams, is this an example you are thinking of?

Say that the Firewall detects a port scan from a particular IP address. What some IPS devices do is block that all traffic from that IP address for a certain amount of time, say 10 minutes. Once that timer expires, traffic is then permitted from that IP, until anoher violation occurs.
