From time to time, IPS signatures may mistakenly identify legitimate network traffic as suspicious and trigger an alert. When this occurs you can add the IPS signature id to the exclusions list to bypass checking that specific signature. You can open a support case, or quickly report these issues here to WatchGuard so that we can address the issue and continue to improve our signature database.
