NitroSecurity introduced new core technology into its NitroGuard Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) for the protection of critical 10-Gigabit network links. NitroGuard IPS provides enterprises with the benefit of intrusion prevention and network flow collection at active throughputs of up to five Gigabits per second, while reducing the cost and limitations associated with hardware-based acceleration.
The new 10-Gigabit NitroGuard IPS 5000 operates at exceptional throughput speeds, with a high number of concurrent sessions, while at the same time analyzing security events, logs, network behavior and flow data for anomalies. Using a fast data management engine, NitroGuard is able to return queries and analytics in seconds, even on massive amounts of historical data and without affecting NitroGuard’s ability to continue processing new events.
In addition to its speed, NitroGuard IPS provides advanced threat detection techniques through its integration with NitroView ESM, the company’s security information and event management system. As a result, information security professionals can monitor and protect core network connections with NitroGuard’s combination of IPS, firewall and network flow collection capabilities.
With this release, improvements in throughput will also be seen across all current-generation NitroGuard IPS appliances after a software upgrade. The NitroGuard 5000 offers either four 10-Gigabit interfaces, or 12 1-Gigabit interfaces.
