Organizations today face security threats from data leaks and malicious targeted attacks. The IBM Security Network IPS GX7 is unique because it enables clients to stop threats before impact, instead of waiting until an attack strikes. Usability considerations include an interface with simple wizards to set up security policies and an easy-to-install, tool-less chassis with graphic instructions intuitively printed on the machine’s exterior. The product is IBM’s first design to block all lines of sight into the machine – this new, security-enhancing detail is emphasized with horizontal tapered louvers noticeable through the large front grill.
