Host Intrusion Monitoring

Our host intrusion detection solution provides threat detection, integrity monitoring for most of you assets and critical systems.

HIDS works for everyone concerned about what changes are made to the servers and workstations in their environment.

HIDS audits changes to system files, detects intrusions, and software misuse. It also alerts on vulnerable applications.

The primary task for a HIDS agent is to monitor for suspicious activity. You will need HIPS applications such as antivirus and antimalware applications to protect against threats. Since HIPS applications are signature based, meaning they can only detect know threats, HIDS is needed to detect behavior of brand new threats.

One example is malware and rootkits can hide themselves from human detection while causing unmeasureable amounts of damage.  Another is insider threats can steal data or modify files to hide their tracks - HIDS is the solution against attacks on hosts. 

A small lightweight agent is installed on  RedHat, Dabian, Windows, and MAC workstations and servers. Then the agent is configured to alert on changes to critical areas of a computing system.
