Intelligent Intrusion Detection as a Service (IDSaaS)

1. Introduction: What is Guardian ?

Intelligent Intrusion Detection as a Service

Guardian is an extremely powerful intrusion detection system (IDS) & prevention system (IPS) deployed between your environment and end users. Once in place, Guardian provides both statistical and rule-driven intrusion detection capabilities to automatically block threats from your networks.

Guardian explanatory architecture

If intrusion detection is Guardian's number one characteristic, intelligence is its second. Guardian collects data regarding all connections and applies machine learning techniques. Once systems are fully baselined by Guardian, recognized malicious traffic can be blocked automatically or alerted upon. This enables a security posture that is proactive & self enhancing.
