Advanced protection against cyber attacks is becoming a top priority for businesses due to the increasingly reported damage they can inflict on an organisation’s reputation and finances.
Intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) give you superior visibility, embedded security intelligence and automated analysis to help you protect your network. By installing Cisco Meraki on-premise security appliances you benefit from the intelligence of the Sourcefire Snort engine, the single most widely deployed IDS and IPS technology in the world.
IPS is performed via pre-defined rulesets or security policies that determine the level of protection needed. These rulesets are updated daily to ensure protection against the latest vulnerabilities, so your security is always up to date.
We can provide you with an easy-to-use dashboard for management of your own IPS and threat protection level rulesets. You can also view security reports from any internet-accessible device. Data is presented in real time, allowing IT administrators to quickly gauge the status of current threats, as well as viewing historical trends, for informed decision-making.
We use next generation Cisco IDS and IPS solutions, with fully integrated advanced malware protection (AMP) and sandboxing solutions, within our own data centres for our co-location and managed server customers. These provide up-to-the-minute threat protection through Cisco’s worldwide threat visibility and analysis organisation. Their efforts result in more than 35,000 vulnerability-focused IPS rules, AMPs, and embedded IP-based, URL-based, and DNS-based security intelligence.
