Packets get filtered by an IPS.

Intrusion prevention system - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The IPS must have filters and those filters must enabled to specifically stop what you want to stop ie Google analytics

The smallest one we sell is the S10

Cool. I've heard of tipping point. Security is difficult because the tail is so long.

In case someone needs another reason to be scared: I once bought an old router intending to reflash it into a bridge. Searching for tools to reprogram it I found an exe from Korea that sent a 128byte packet to the router that enabled an undocumented root account with hard coded password! (played with it before using it.) With that root account I could reconfigure the router as a bridge and anyone else could also totally own the box. The device was utterly unsecured if you knew the secret (fixed!) code.

If you want something to be private you don't put it on a computer.

Wish I had Russian bride ads. Or cougars! I get ads for books of poems?
