ATLANTA -- Vigilar, Inc., the leading information security consulting firm, today announced that intrusion prevention is now available as part of its SmartDefender® Managed Security Services. SmartDefender Managed Security Services are designed to allow organizations to leverage the experience and vigilance of Vigilar’s information security experts in order to protect the value of their networked assets.

Intrusion prevention systems (IPS) utilize signatures and baselines to detect and obstruct anomalous behavior, viruses and malicious code from doing damage to hosts and networks. As part if its SmartDefender Managed Security Services, Vigilar provides enhanced wired or wireless IPS monitoring and management, on-demand technical support, heightened security, historical reporting and a web-based portal to provide clients a current snapshot of the organization’s security posture. SmartDefender also provides product or device life cycle management and includes the latest attack signature update applications from all vendors.

Palaniswamy (Raj) Rajan, President and CEO of Vigilar, said, “A skyrocketing number of attacks are targeting corporate networks in today’s threat environment. Although intrusion prevention systems have become an integral part of many network security architectures, errors in configurations and unmonitored systems become a serious threat to the organization’s overall security posture. Very few organizations have the infrastructure and budget to monitor and manage their security devices on a minute-by-minute basis and to offer services and protection to the extent that we do. SmartDefender Managed Security Services alleviate our clients’ worries with regard to how they will keep up with the latest security technologies or hire, train, and retrain security professionals as new technologies emerge.”
