An Intrusion Prevention System is any device which exercises access control to protect computers from exploitation. "Intrusion prevention" technology is considered by some to be an extension of intrusion detection (IDS) technology, but it is actually another form of access control, like an application layer firewall. The latest Next Generation Firewalls leverage their existing deep packet inspection engine by sharing this functionality with an Intrusion-prevention system.
With increasingly creative exploits, it is important to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to data protection. Performance monitoring tools that do not keep pace can leave your information vulnerable.
Organizations invest heavily to block advanced attacks, on both endpoints and networks. Despite all this investment, devices continue to be compromised in increasing numbers and high-profile breaches continue unabated. Something doesn’t add up. It comes down to psychology: security practitioners want to believe the latest shiny widget for preventing compromise will finally work and stop the pain.
See how APT 18 conducted its proof-of-concept attack, learn how attackers bypassed critical security controls and find out how you can eliminate blind spots, reduce risk, and respond and remediate faster.
Download this white paper to learn how continuous asset discovery gives risk and security management insight into their network so they can direct security and operations staff to take the corrective action needed to reduce risk to meet the expectations of executive management.
To win the ongoing war against hackers and cyber criminals, IT professionals must do two things: Deploy and maintain endpoint security tools with the latest updates, and ensure the software applications running in their networks have the latest available patches.
Upgrading security systems to meet both current and future needs is no small feat. So when a Texas-based surveillance system integrator began work with a large national nonprofit foundation on its 20,000 square foot park-like property, existing infrastructure and future system deployment were primary considerations. With the objective to update the nonprofit’s Virtual Management Software (VMS) while leveraging existing analog and IP cameras, the system integrator needed a cost-effective solution to meet their current needs with the ability to scale for rapid growth.
