Intrusion detection Systems (IDS) provide around-the-clock network surveillance. They analyze the packet data streams within the network, searching for unauthorized activity, such as attacks by hackers, enabling users to respond immediately to security breaches. Using a physical analogy, IDS Systems are equivalent to video cameras and motion sensors; they detect unauthorized or suspicious activity. The Catalyst 6500 and Cisco 7600 Intrusion Detection Module provides real-time, around-the-clock network surveillance. Designed to address the increased requirements for security visibility, denial-of-service protection, antihacking detection, and e-commerce business defenses, the IDS Module Monitors network traffic off the Switch backplane and alarms on malicious or unauthorized activity.
