By: CounterSnipe Systems
Boston, Dec 2015: CounterSnipe Systems, a leader in developing “easy to deploy and manage”, Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDS/IPS) security software are pleased to announce the availability of IDS/IPS sensors for AWS based servers.
CounterSnipe recently launched version 8.5.0 of its IDS/IPS based network security software, that includes the latest release of Suricata, a multi threading IDS engine. With that the software maintains its ability to provide a high class Intrusion Prevention System. However, the need for managing IDS events against the changes on a specific network is ever more important now than that the Cyber threats are rapidly on the rise. CounterSnipe extends high performing ability of Suricata to producing a fully automated and self managing network security system. Following are some of the key features of CounterSnipe;
Intrusion Detection and Prevention (IDS/IPS)
Asset Discovery and Scanning
End point detection and blocking
Intelligent Alert Management
Highly flexible deployments
Automated risk data updates and deployment
CounterSnipe sensors for AWS will operate on any cloud based server, currently running on Centos or Ubuntu. The sensors are designed to monitor a single or multiple local interfaces for all network access to and from the AWS server, and report those logs back to a CounterSnipe Threat Management Console(TMC)
“Our original offering to our customers started with IDS/IPS and we maintain and continue to offer a very high class, high performance and easy to manage IPS. We are also aware that security of a network does not complete with an IPS alone. Therefore we have spent years in developing utilities that make our IDS/IPS much more effective by auto configuring for each of our customers. With our sensors for AWS and other Cloud based servers we are closing in on all end points for better security”, says Amar Rathore, SVP Business Development.
“We have been one the first businesses to trial these Cloud Services IDS/IPS sensors. The installation is a breeze and we are currently managing twelve sensors centrally from a physical TMC in our in house demonstration center. We are very pleased as this will enable us to go back to many of our customers that run their applications in Cloud including on AWS EC2 instances and help them meet PCI and other compliance requirements. This is great news for our customers" says, Nathan Millar, GM at a CounterSnipe Sales Partner, Cyber Security Services.
