Intrusion Prevention

From a security standpoint, intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) are complementary to firewalls because firewalls are generally access-control devices that are built to block access to an application or host. In this way, a firewall can be used to remove access to a large number of application ports, reducing the threat to the servers..

Increased network availability :

Provides network wide, distributed protection from many attacks, exploits, worms, and viruses.


Faster remediation :

Pinpoints the source of network attacks faster and takes corrective actions closest to the attack

IDS and IPS sensors look for attacks in network and application traffic that is permitted to go through the firewall. If it detects an attack, the IDS sensor generates an alert to inform the organization about the activity. IPS is similar in that it generates alerts due to malicious activity and, additionally, it can apply an action to block the attack before it reaches the destination.

Deployment flexibility :

Offers inline inspection of traffic through any combination of the router’s LAN and WAN interfaces with field-customizable worm and attack signature sets and event actions that adjust automatically based on risk level.


Comprehensive threat protection :

Works with Firewall, control-plane policing, and other Software security features.

An Intrusion Detection System (IDS) plays an integral role in supplementing other security measures in modern corporate networks. However, to be effective, an IDS implementation requires disciplined processes and experienced staff, carefully configured systems and consistent tuning and updates of the IDS device itself. That’s why so many organizations entrust their IDS Services towards Xenoit.
