Review: StillSecure StrataGuard Free

Review: StillSecure StrataGuard Free

As its name implies, this is a free version of the StillSecure StrataGuard intrusion detection system (IDS) and intrusion prevention system (IPS) products. The software lacks some features present in the commercial versions, such as automatic rule updating and individual device protection, but none of these limitations need be a problem for its target audience, the small business and individual user.

Intrusion prevention (2006)

IPS products have shown a marked improvement in performance over the past few years, but most have become as complex as the networks they are designed to protect. Peter Stephenson reports

Review: ActiveScout

Review: ActiveScout

The ActiveScout appliance is a very basic intrusion prevention system that uses behaviour, not signatures to address a possible attack. It will identify whether the network is being scanned and then attempt to block the potential intrusion.

Review: Ally ip100

We were amazed at what this little product could do and how strong it was. When it first arrived, we did not believe that this little piece of plastic could be a functional IPS. We were wrong.

Review: FortiGate-300A

Review: FortiGate-300A

The FortiGate-300A is a fullfunction front-end system for protecting a network in a way that goes far beyond intrusion prevention. It also has a built-in firewall and anti-virus protection as well as web filtering. Each port on the unit can be firewalled with specific rules and policies, allowing protected VLANs and isolated networks to be created.

Review: InstaGate PRO

Review: InstaGate PRO

The InstaGate has several interesting features. It can become more than just a firewall and IPS, as eSoft offers different software extensions, called SoftPaks. These include anti-virus, web filters, and IM and peer-to-peer filters. Apart from being an all-in-one device, it has a range of customisable reports and alert logs. It also includes several real-time monitors and keeps track of all internal and external activity.

Review: ipANGEL

This device features real-time vulnerability discovery on the network and can tune and adapt its policies for the best protection. As it learns more about the network, it customises its defences for the environment.

Review: Sourcefire 3D IPS1000

Review: Sourcefire 3D IPS1000

The Sourcefire box does all the things an IPS should do. It fits comfortably in the category of an average IPS, although it must be remembered that the Sourcefire 3D Suite includes a ton of IDS, scanning, and vulnerability management capability which falls outside the context of this review. As an IPS, the box has no standout features, and nothing specifically separates it from other IPSs.

Review: TippingPoint 200E
