secunet snort Intrusion Prevention System

The secunet snort Intrusion Prevention System (secunet snort IPS) was specially developed for monitoring internal network gateways. It is usually installed inline at the level layer 2 in bridging mode. This guarantees simple and transparent installation upstream of the internal systems – without time-consuming and cost-intensive modifications. If the system detects attacks and threats to the systems under its protection, these attacks and threats are blocked automatically and filtered out of the data flow.

secunet snort Intrusion Detection System

Availability and performance cannot be compromised for attack detection. In sniffing mode, the secunet snort Intrusion Detection System (secunet snort IDS) is transparent and listens in on the network and reads all the data. It compares the content of the packets against characteristic patterns of well-known attacks. If the system detects an attack, an alarm can be triggered and the network packets can be logged for subsequent analysis or for the purpose of securing evidence.
