The SMS provides a hard-coded IPS Quarantine action. This action performs traffic management as well as remediates web requests to be block actions or redirected to a web page detailing issues they may have regarding their system. You can also add accessible web sites allowed to the host while blocking all other access, such as to a virus detection company or software update web site. The default IPS Quarantine action is set to block all traffic from hosts identified for quarantine. You can modify these settings. For example, you may want to redirect suspect web requests to a specified web server. Incorporating this action in a policy with notification actions can provide an effective defense.


Note: To use this action you must configure a Profile action set for Active Response.

  1. Log in to the SMS from a client.
  2. Navigate to the Responder > Actions tab screen.
  3. On the Response Actions section do one of the following:
    • Double-click the IPS Quarantine entry.
    • Highlight the IPS Quarantine entry and click Edit.
    • Highlight the IPS Quarantine entry, right-click and select Edit.
    • Highlight the IPS Quarantine entry and from the top menu select Edit > Preferences.
  4. The Edit Response Action setup wizard displays.
  5. If you want to customize the Action Name, type a new name for the action. You cannot change the action type.
  6. Select Quarantine Settings tab and select one of the following options:
    • Web Requests
      • Select Block.
      • Select Redirect to a web server. If you select Redirect, enter a web site to access.
      • Select Display quarantine web page.
    • Other Traffic- Select Block or Permit for the response to host traffic.
  7. To allow quarantined hosts to access specific sites, select Quarantine Exceptions in the navigation tree and then click New to create a new listing or select an existing listing and click Edit.
  8. If you prefer another name for the action, enter the new Name.
  9. Enter the Address and select CIDR, IP Mask, or Any IP.
  10. Click OK.
