With the increased complexity and volume of today‚Äôs security threats, a firewall alone is no longer enough to keep your network safe. While a firewall permits or blocks traffic based on port and protocol rules, advanced threats can bypass the firewall. You need additional layers of defense. At the same time, shortages of qualified security personnel make it difficult to keep up with attacks that may occur around the clock.

The Sungard Availability Services Managed Intrusion Protection Service (IPS) ensures that all traffic flowing through your firewall and onto your network is legitimate. Sungard AS Managed IPS delivers real time, reliable protection against network and application attacks such as worms, viruses, Trojans, denial of service, distributed denial of service, SQL Injection and blended threats without degrading network performance. A team of Sungard AS IT security experts monitors your network traffic at all times, every day of the year, to proactively identify and mitigate threats to network and host data.
