Dear Umesh,

 

1. Where can checked last updated IPS policy in fortigate.
* CLI Command
- #diag autoupdate version

* FortiGuard
- https://www.fortiguard.com/updates/ips

 

2. where should I apply IPS security profile in policy/rules based on the ZONE basis.
1) Security Profiles > Intrusion Prevention > Create of IPS Sensor
- https://docs.fortinet.com/document/fortigate/7.0.12/administration-guide/583477/configuring-an-ips-s...

2) Policy & Object > Firewall Policy > Security Profiles > Apply of IPS Sensor after IPS enable

 

3. How IPS Quarantine malware, and How IPS Identify is it malicious IPs or not and many more.
Behavior so that FortiGuard Server can internally verify and classify as malicious IPs to block them. Fortigate gets updates from the server in real time.
You can inquire about false positives at https://www.fortiguard.com/faq.

 

Thanks,
