Managed IDS and IPS services.

Business challenges

  • How do I get the best value from the security devices I have invested in?
  • Is it possible to identify and stop attacks and security breaches in progress?
  • What are the best practices in managing policies and monitoring of Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS)?
  • How do I reduce operational expenses in maintaining my security infrastructure and also ensure best in class management?

Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) play a crucial role in preventing harmful traffic from entering trusted areas of your network and systems. A defense in depth information security strategy demands that you implement IDS and IPS in your network and servers. However, maintaining an IT team to manage and monitor these systems 24/7 and respond to alerts and warnings is very time-consuming and cost prohibitive. As a result, many leading enterprises are outsourcing the monitoring and management of their IDS and IPS to reduce the burden on their in-house staff, to get best-in-class service from experts and to reduce operating expenses over time.
