Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) technology from Hyve protects your business from internet threats and instils confidence in your customers.
Information is the backbone of any business. In many cases, information is the business. It’s invaluable to the enterprise, and very valuable to thieves. Sensitive business information is also at risk: product designs, IP, business plans, research information and application code are attractive targets for industrial espionage by unscrupulous competitors, nation-states and cyber criminals who will sell to the highest bidder.
Businesses store millions of customer records: credit card data; personally identifiable information; medical records and personal financial data on internet facing servers. The cost of a data breach can be enormous. In 2010 the average total cost of a single data breach was more than £5 million.
Like legitimate business, organised crime has gone cyber – it’s where the money is. In just a few years, cyber crime has grown into big business. One 2009 report estimated cyber crime cost businesses $1 trillion annually. Cyber crime attacks are now listed as the FBI’s third highest priority. Criminals obtain banking credentials and clean out bank accounts for tens, often hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Hackers use clever attack tools, viruses and malware, Attackers employ armies of infected computers to launch attacks. Increasingly, criminals, unscrupulous competitors, hacktivists and unfriendly nation states are launching targeted attacks against not only high-profile targets, but also small businesses which are easy prey.
Hackers launch Botnets that launch massive, automated attacks that scan enterprises for vulnerabilities and exploit them, usually to steal information. Botnets also send billions of spam messages and can be used for crippling distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. The attacking computers make repeated requests to the application in an attempt to exhaust its resources, rendering it unable to respond to other requests. Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks cause costly network downtime to organisations that rely on the Internet to do business.
Firewalls and endpoint anti-malware products are essential security tools, but are now seen as inadequate in the face of these sophisticated onslaughts.
