Overview

Enhance breach detection with a managed IDS service

Given the sophisticated and persistent nature of the latest cyber security threats, traditional preventative security is now ineffective at protecting your business. To avoid damage and disruption, being able to proactively detect attacks inside the network and quickly shut them down is now imperative.

Redscan’s Managed IDS service combines the latest intrusion detection technology and experienced cyber security experts to continuously monitor for breaches. Our security specialists eliminate the burden of IDS alert analysis, enabling your in-house team to focus on incident remediation rather than discovery.

Definition

What is an Intrusion Detection System?

An Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is a security technology that monitors network activity to identify suspicious patterns of behaviour.

Intrusion detection commonly encompasses network and host-based methods. Network-based IDS (NIDS) is used to log and analyse traffic flowing across a network to identify unauthorised or anomalous behaviour such as policy violations and malware. Host-based IDS (HIDS) includes file integrity monitoring, log monitoring and rootkit checking to analyse activity on individual endpoint devices.

NIDS and HIDS are passive in nature and for this reason are often deployed alongside intrusion prevention systems (IPS), such as firewalls, and SIEM, which enables IDS entries to be correlated with security events from other sources.

How can a managed IDS service from Redscan help?

A high degree of security knowledge is required to prioritise the alerts that intrusion detection systems generate, yet many organisations lack the security expertise required to get the most out of them. Redscan’s Managed Intrusion Detection service relieves this pressure by providing a team of Security Operations Centre (SOC) professionals to analyse and triage alerts plus provide actionable mitigation guidance to respond swiftly and effectively to them.
