Intrusion Detection Systems / Intrusion Prevention Systems
An intrusion detection system is a tool that detects unwanted attempts at accessing, manipulating or disabling a computer system through the network infrastructure. Intrusion prevention systems enable the device to send packets back to the live network in an attempt to stop threats on the network.
Why do you need to use an access technology solution with your IDS/IPS?
Because these tools need to be installed inline, they can become a source of network downtime. When the device fails or needs to be maintained, the entire network needs to be brought down to perform these fixes.
Network Critical solutions for IDS/IPS
With Network Critical’s V-Line Test Access Ports (TAPs) and their fail-safe technology, it’s possible to install these network tools virtually, inline. If one of the connections to the V-Line TAP is lost, the other connection is automatically dropped. This allows network traffic to continue to flow if power is lost to the TAP or if the connected device needs to be disconnected or updated.
