Offers real-time alarming with automated email notifications
Paetec Holdings has released a new managed network Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDPS) that utilises deep-packet inspection through a combination of a signature-based Intrusion Prevention Sensor (IPS) and a centrally monitored Intrusion Detection System (IDS).
According to Paetec, the new offering combines the monitoring and detecting components of IDS with the reactive, zero-hour components of IPS. The intrusion prevention sensor and the event correlation engine determines the threat level of the event and act accordingly within a 99.9999 percent SLA guarding against false positives.
The company said that the new IDPS functions as an add-on service to its Network Firewall service, with features including, quadruple redundancy, both local and geographically diverse; real-time monitoring; and real-time alarming with automated email notifications.
In addition, the new offering also includes features such as reporting and logging information available through Paetec Online; and automated patching and updating, the company said.
John Chapman, senior vice president of marketing at Paetec, said: “Our managed network IDPS service drastically reduces the costs associated with enterprise network security by leveraging our world-class equipment, processes, and personnel in our centralised Paetec Security Operations Centre.”
