Intrusion Prevention and Detection Systems


Entity Data’s Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) and Log Management solutions are powered by CheckPoint® and Alert Logic®, working together to provide advanced proactive protection against known and unknown attacks.

Network Intrusion Prevention System (NIPS) Powered by Check Point®

Our Check Point® Network Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems provide real-time threat intelligence that protects customer data, applications, and infrastructure from known, unknown and undisclosed attacks.

Intrusion Prevention Systems are dedicated appliances that protect against network and application-level attacks at the network edge. These appliances sit “in-line” and analyse traffic patterns and traffic behaviour while looking for suspicious activity.


  • Detection and prevention of specific known exploits

  • Detection and prevention of both known and unknown malware

  • Detection and prevention of vulnerabilities, including both known and unknown exploit tools, for example protection from specific CVEs

  • Detection and prevention of protocol misuse which in many cases indicates malicious activity or potential threat

  • Detection and prevention of outbound malware communications

  • Detection and prevention of botnet command and control traffic

  • High-Availability (Active / Active appliances)

  • Fully Managed 24/7/365 by our security team
