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.
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 nonprofitís 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.
Download this case study to learn more about how the system integrator engaged with NUUO, a leading NVR and VMS manufacturer known for seamless integration of 3rd party cameras to build a customized system that would suit the nonprofitís needs.
With the expanding sophistication of large-scale breaches, the question isnít whether most organizations will be hacked Ė itís when. The APM for Security Forensics white paper shows you how performance monitoring tools can act as a network security camera. It also includes a case study of how one network team used a performance monitoring solution to identify the surprising source of an attack.
This paper gives information about how Automatic Exploit Prevention significantly reduces the risk of infection from widespread malware, or more targeted attacks using exploits Ė even when a zero-day vulnerability is used.
