Network Intrusion Prevention and Detection is a highly effective layer of security you can implement to protect your organization from unauthorized access. Many devices promise to provide this protection. However, it is difficult for most organizations to respond to alerts, apply continuous updates, hire and train staff, and provide vigilant monitoring 24x7.

Our customers have found it more effective to augment their staff with our team of certified Security Analysts who focus exclusively on security. Our Analysts leverage our industry-leading threat visibility across thousands of customers around the world to identify and protect your network from emerging threats.
