Security attacks have become more sophisticated and can be encrypted to bypass perimeter defenses. In addition, internal attacks are more likely as it becomes increasingly difficult to know all employees activities as well as outside contractors and suppliers. These types of attacks can be inadvertently transmitted via malware attacks as long as there is network access via infected visiting laptops and or removable media. As such Host Intrusion services offer another layer of defense to protect your infrastructure from internal and external attacks. However, host IDS/IPS systems must be configured, implemented correctly and monitored around the clock. Cautela Labs Host IDS/IPS service is a fully managed service that decrypts and inspects encrypted traffic to prevent external and internal attacks on your critical server’s application, data and operating systems. Our security team defines policies, configures rules tune host agents and provide 24 x 7 monitoring of you environment to both protect your critical servers and allow legitimate traffic to flow uninterrupted.

The Cautela Labs Host IDS/IPS Service serves as an application firewall for your servers to ensure that an application is doing only what it is supposed to be doing. When encrypted traffic is received and decrypted by the operating system on the host machine, the agents intercepts instructions prior to reaching the application to prevent malicious activity. Your servers are even protected from new threats. Host agents are deployed on critical servers with customizable policies providing more precise control over access and usage. A host agent resides between the applications and the operating system, enabling maximum application visibility with minimal impact to the performance of the underlying operating systems. The software's architecture intercepts all operating system calls to file, network and registry sources as well as to dynamic run-time resources such as memory pages, shared library modules and COM objects. The agent then intelligently correlates the behavior of these system calls, based on rules that define inappropriate or unacceptable behavior for a specific application or for all applications. This correlation and insight into the application's behavior is what allows the software, as directed by the security staff, to prevent new intrusions.
