Intrusion Detection System

Monitor malicious activity within your network and endpoints.


Organizations of any size, from small- and medium-size businesses (SMBs) to large enterprises, can benefit from some form of Intrusion Detection System (IDS). The right IDS is a valuable tool to increase overall security.

An IDS plays an essential role in IT security by detecting potentially malicious activity by actively monitoring your network and endpoints for unusual patterns and suspicious behavior, then sending an alert if anything is detected. For an IDS to be effective, you need expert staff with disciplined processes so that the system is well configured and consistently tuned. Available as a managed service, EventTracker’s expert staff continuously tune and configure the IDS and watch for alerts. If any suspicious activity is detected, EventTracker notifies the customer immediately and provides remediation recommendations. We also integrate the IDS with numerous threat feeds to ensure that a customer’s network can detect even the latest threats.

Host-based and Network-based IDS

The EventTracker sensor has a built-in host-based intrusion detection (HIDS) module that monitors all the audit logs, system activity, and network connections on the endpoint to detect and respond to malicious or anomalous activities. This includes:
  • File integrity monitoring (FIM)
  • Monitor/terminate suspicious processes
  • Detect unauthorized access attempts
  • Monitor/restrict removable media usage
The network-based intrusion detection system (NIDS) module provides real-time traffic analysis. By conducting the protocol analysis and content matching, it detects denial of service, buffer overflow, CGI attacks, and Server Message Block (SMB) probes. This includes:
  • Detect known threats
  • Detect transmission of sensitive information or PII
  • Detect stealth port scan attempts



Our expert staff manage your IDS service from our 24x7 Security Operations Center (SOC).

Complete and current
knowledge library

EventTracker’s Knowledge Center is constantly updated by our own security experts to ensure that we are aware of any emerging threats.

Real-time alerting
and escalation

Alerts are generated in real-time and integrated into your customized EventTracker Incidents dashboard, which can launch notifications to designated personnel.

Quick threat response

Our expert staff, working 24x7, review your IDS/IPS alerts in real-time and notify you immediately if there is any suspicious activity. We will then provide you remediation recommendations, so you spend less time fixing any issues.

Constantly updated

Our IDS/IPS are integrated with numerous threat intelligence feeds, so they are constantly tuned to look for emerging threats that pose a risk to your network.

More effective

We configure, tune, and maintain available rules to monitor your network to ensure maximum effectiveness. IDS events can be easily correlated with other security events to reduce false positives and get complete visibility.

Co-Managed SIEM

Businesses large and small trust the EventTracker Intrusion Detection System to actively monitor their environment for unusual patterns and suspicious behavior, which is a part of our managed service, EventTracker Enterprise.
