    Hi AhmedMohamed,

     

    For Juniper, IPS=IDP - Intrusion detection functionality, that allows you to catch network attacks and protect your servers from known (sometimes even unknown) application-layer vulnerabilities. Can be used to protect clients from server-initiated attacks as well.

     

    UTM includes network Antivirus, Antispam, Web filtering and Content filtering features, this functionality is usually needed to protect users of your branch offices.

    The SMB or Branch bundle include both
