Managed Intrusion Detection and Prevention Datasheet
Protecting your IT infrastructure
As security threats evolve in complexity and volume, enterprises are finding that firewalls are simply not enough. There are more and more complex and intricate schemes to disguise malicious code in seemingly legitimate data streams and messages. Enterprises need proactive solutions to prevent illegitimate access and harmful forays into their applications and servers. Types of intrusions can negatively impact their business and result in significant costs, losses, or worse. In addition, they must also comply with financial and regulatory compliance standards.
The firewall is still a key part of any security solution, but overall protection can be significantly enhanced with Intrusion Detection (IDS) or Intrusion Prevention Services (IPS). Either service is delivered via a single device, depending on its location in the network and how it is configured (monitoring IDS or active/blocking IPS).
NTTA customers can choose from:
- Intrusion Detection – Passive monitoring; non-invasive, deep packet inspection with corresponding alerts and reports on identified threats
- Intrusion Prevention – All of the features of IDS with the additional ability to mitigate & block/drop known malicious and other potentially harmful traffic or content.
NTT America uses IBM Proventia IDS/IPS platforms that are continually updated to address the latest threats based on leading edge research and development from IBM X-force®. In addition, both solutions provide comprehensive, actionable data via the easily accessible security dashboard.
