Here's an idea.

We love the "Enable port scan detection" feature as it gives us a lot of useful information for analysis, however our users do not like the "meaningless" pop-ups.

I suggest to add a sub-feature of Firewall policy - Protection and Stealth - Enable port scan detection, let's call it "suppress notifications", which will continue logging the port scan events but will not display a notification window to an end-user.

Thanks for your suggestion.  We will consider this for a future release.

Isn't port scan notification suppressed when "Display Intrusion Prevention notifications" are disabled in the Client User Interface settings on the location-specific policy settings?
