Managed Intrusion Detection

The Need for Intrusion Detection Systems

The internet is teeming with viruses, advanced threats and trap doors set up by hackers to gain access to your system. And it doesn’t take much for them to do a lot of harm. Malicious actors have become very efficient at studying your network’s architecture and finding cracks in the system. Once they’re in, it only takes the compromise of a single machine to do irreparable damage.

From penetrating a system in an effort to shut down entire grids to accessing and publishing confidential information to damage a company’s reputation, hackers present a force that can’t be ignored. Operating stealthily, they cross a network’s periphery avoiding detection for extended periods of time. Firewalls cannot help detect an intrusion that had already occurred. And because of hackers, both the insiders and outsiders, constantly look for ways to outmaneuver the ‘wall,’ keeping up with advanced threats on that front is near impossible.

An intrusion prevention system (IPS) is a piece of software that monitors network traffic for activity that strays from usual conduct and violates policy. For example, a login after midnight combined with an export of a large amount of data could warrant an alarm. While an IDS (Intrusion Detection System) is limited to detecting and reporting on unusual activity inside the perimeter, an IPS is also able to shield a network from hacking attempts by helping the firewall prevent attacks. The job of an IPS, therefore, is to detect intruders and excise them before they get to work while preventing new intruders from coming in.

Why Choose Atlantic.Net for you Managed Intrusion Detection Systems

To keep your network safe from attackers, Atlantic.Net uses a Cisco-developed packet analyzer that scans your network traffic for malicious activity. As an open source network intrusion prevention system, this software is capable of performing real-time traffic analysis, packet logging on IP networks, protocol analysis, content searching/matching, and can be used to detect a variety of attacks.

When you choose to work with Atlantic.Net, you can rest assured that your system will be protected with state-of-the-art IPS software. Our team will install and configure the software on your behalf and monitor your network for operating system fingerprinting attempts, common gateway interface, buffer overflows, server message block probes and stealth port scans. You will not have to be concerned about updates and reporting. While your mind is free to innovate, Atlantic.Net will ensure your systems are running safely and smoothly.

The Need for Intrusion Detection Systems

  • Hackers, viruses, and other threats are constantly probing your network, looking for a way to get in.
  • It only takes one hacked machine for an entire network to become compromised.
  • An intrusion detection system (IDS) is a device or software application that monitors a network or systems for malicious activity or policy violations.
  • Any detected activity or violation is typically reported either to an administrator or collected centrally using a security information and event management (SIEM) system.
  • A SIEM system combines outputs from multiple sources, and uses alarm filtering techniques to distinguish malicious activity from false alarms.
  • Though they both relate to network security, an IDS differs from a firewall:
    • A firewall looks outwardly for intrusions in order to stop them from happening
    • Firewalls limit access between networks to prevent intrusion and do not signal an attack from inside the network
    • An IDS evaluates a suspected intrusion once it has taken place and signals an alarm
    • An IDS also watches for attacks that originate from within a system
