What is an Intrusion Prevention System?
Think of an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) as one of your first lines of defense. If a hacker tries to attack your network, it mitigates the damage done until the cavalry (our team of technicians) arrives.
An IPS acts as an extension of behavior monitoring. Once the behavior monitoring software detects a threat within your network, the IPS activates a firewall to block it. In the meantime, our cyber security team gears up for further response.
Why use Intrusion Prevention System Management?
It’s challenging for your company to maintain, update and install patches on an IPS. Our management services guarantee your IPS is constantly functioning properly. As a result, you don’t even have to look at it.
If your network has glaring security loopholes, it’s only a matter of time until they’re exploited by a hacker. However, IPS prevents this from happening.
Your IPS directly notifies our cyber security team any team a threat is present. This allows us to address the issue immediately. With locations in NYC and Long Island, we can even come to your location to combat cyberattacks.
Zero Day Exploit Defense
Zero day exploits are threats that cannot be stopped by a regular antivirus. They require additional lines of defense. An IPS is one of the best ways to protect against them.
Wireless Network Protection
Wireless networks are convenient, but they also add a new way for hackers to infiltrate your data. An IPS for your Wi-Fi network will automatically kick off any unauthorized devices.
Comply with the Law
IPS management can help your company comply with industry-related cyber security mandates. These include PCI, HIPAA, 23 NYCRR 500 and more. Failure to comply can result in hefty fines.
