Intrusion Detection Add-On

A network attack can cripple your business. Defenses such as firewalls and anti-virus software eliminate some threats but still leave your internal network vulnerable to attack. That’s why we’ve partnered with Sophos to offer an on-demand intrusion detection system (IDS). The IDS blocks network attacks, manages server vulnerabilities and automates IT compliance, securing your confidential data and networks from within. In addition, a recent independent study shows that Sophos appliances are the fastest in the industry.

An Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) can identify and stop many threats, exploits, back-door programs, and other attacks as they pass through the system. An IPS can bolster a firewall's security policy by inspecting traffic that is allowed to pass through the firewall to make sure it does not contain unwanted threats. Even with good patching practices, a company can be faced with a threat that affects its systems and resources. It is in these situations that IPS can shine, since patterns to catch the threat are released before an official update or patch is made available.

How Does Intrusion Protection Work?

IPS is a deep packet inspection system. It analyzes the data packets after they have passed through the firewall and uses a rules list of over 8000 patterns to remove packets that contain undesired contents. This list is updated every few minutes, constantly adapting and evolving to keep your business protected from threats as they emerge and spread.
