With the rapid escalation in threats to business networks, and the increasing complexity of blended attacks, we can help you prevent rather than just simply detect problems.
You can work smarter, with fewer restrictions, using network–based Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) for unparalleled protection against both external and internal attacks. Also known as Intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPS), these are significantly more advanced than passive systems like firewalls and intrusion detection devices. Intrusion detection devices also significantly cut administration costs by vaccinating vulnerable areas to reduce the administration costs of patching.
We work with the best – Cisco IPS devices. Simply positioned at key points within your network topology, Cisco intrusion prevention systems offer the fullest protection with a low cost of ownership that comes from easy administration and maintenance.
Cisco IPS is the only IPS with risk rating, global correlation capabilities, and the only IPS backed by Cisco Security Intelligence Operations. Cisco’s patented risk rating system combines several sophisticated threat detection methods into one simple number representing the overall risk rating. It takes into account key factors, including threat origin, attack contents and target vulnerability and value.
Cisco® ASA 5500-X Series Next-Generation Firewalls integrate the world’s most proven stateful inspection firewall with a comprehensive suite of next-generation firewall services for networks of all sizes – small and midsize businesses with one or more locations, large enterprises, service providers, and mission-critical data centers.
Cisco ASA 5500-X Series Next-Generation Firewalls deliver Cisco MultiScale™ performance with industry-leading service flexibility, modular scalability, feature extensibility, and low deployment and operation costs.
Intrusion detection technology has evolved to address today’s complex threat environment and to meet increasing demands for security and compliance. These factors have also driven the move from pure intrusion detection capabilities to more full-featured intrusion prevention solutions. Cisco offers zero-day protection. When used with the Cisco Anomaly Detection feature, Cisco IPS can protect a network before signature updates are available, and can continue to improve protection through behavioral learning. Cisco IPS has helped customers meet compliance requirements such as PCI, SOX, and HIPAA, safeguarding companies from the expenses associated with noncompliance and data breaches.
Intrusion detection systems provide a level of protection beyond the firewall by protecting the network from internal and external security attacks and threats. The Cisco IOS IDS is as an integrated intrusion detection sensor, watching packets and sessions as they flow through the router, scanning each to match the IDS signatures. Upon detection of suspicious activity, the Cisco IOS IDS responds before network security can be compromised and sends alarms to a management console. The network administrator can configure the Cisco IOS IDS to choose the appropriate response to security incidents.
