Intrusion Detection and Prevention

Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) help organizations monitor and respond to malicious network traffic. With the numerous web-based threats, Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and malware that organizations face, NIDS are an integral part of an overall security strategy. NIDS are an important component for compliance with regulations such as the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA), Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)/Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST), Sarbanes–Oxley Act of 2002 (SOX) and others.
