Network & Host Intrusion Detection (NIDS/HIDS)
Critical in Identifying Threats
Network level intrusion detection is critical in identifying threats that have evaded host-based defenses. Abacode leverages a Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS) as part of the Security Operations Center (SOC) 24/7 monitoring to inspected egress, ingress and lateral traffic in the organization. The NIDS does exceptionally well in performing deep network packet inspection and pattern matching amplifying the SOC’s threat and attack detection capabilities. In such way, our SOC can detect threat actors that gained a foothold inside the organization using techniques that endpoint protection and other components of the security stack were unable to detect and block. NIDS also addresses some of the risks associated with insider threat as the SOC is able to detect and escalate unauthorized systems and software solutions that could be used to exfiltrate privileged and confidential data. NIDS identify risks associated with phishing email landing pages, compromised sites, and command & control sites that could been leveraged by threat actors to target your organization.
Host Intrusion Detection (HIDS)
Host-level intrusion detection accelerates the detection and isolation of issues that lead to the compromise of servers and workstations. Abacode relies on a set of lightweight Host Intrusion Detection System (HIDS) endpoint agents that complement the Endpoint Protection System or Antivirus. The HIDS agent enables our SOC not to only detect Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) but also to enact Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) countermeasures. Some HIDS include the file integrity monitoring (FIM) and endpoint telemetry needed for Managed Detection and Response (MDR) and to meet regulatory compliance. The HIDS agent extends the monitoring capabilities of our Security Operations Center beyond the corporate network for laptops. In such way, laptops are constantly being monitored while used from home, at the coffee shop, the airport, or the hotel room.
