This network intrusion prevention system delivers inline threat prevention and detection capabilities through a combination of protocol discovery and analysis, heuristics, behavior analysis and cloud-based reputation feeds.
Top Layer Networks' Attack Mitigator lies at the traditional end of intrusion prevention. It aims to defend against both internal and external hackers using denial-of- service (DoS) and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS), as well as giving broad protection against other well-known attacks. This is done using a mixture of stateful inspection hardware and packet inspection software.
Based on custom-designed high-speed security processors, the UnityOne network-based Intrusion Prevention Appliances (IPA) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) are designed to stop cyberattacks in the network before such attacks can infect, damage or destroy core IT assets.
Top Layer's Attack Mitigator IPS is actually a family of ASIC-based Network Intrusion Prevention Systems (NIPS), with blocking and control against certain types of cyber attacks. The product tested is the Attack Mitigator IPS 2400, a combination of multiple Attack Mitigator IPS 1000 and load-balancer units.
