Intrusion Detection and Prevention

Intrusion Detection (IDS) has the ability to monitor network and server traffic in order to identify potential illicit activities such as malicious network traffic and computer usage that can't be detected by a conventional firewall.

This includes network attacks against vulnerable services, data driven attacks on applications, host based attacks such as privilege escalation, unauthorized logins and access to sensitive files, and malware (viruses, Trojan horses, and worms).

ERE provides state of the art host intrusion detection system monitoring service and network intrusion detection system monitoring service.

ERE will assess, design and implement the required monitoring infrastructure appropriate for each client’s specific environment. On an ongoing basis ERE will monitor the output from the sensors, analyze and forward alerts in a timely fashion and provide regular reporting. ERE will also help define an incident response process and provide technical resources to help resolve or recover from major incidents, as determined by each client’s specific requirements and processes.
