A few months ago we introduced our NetGladiator Intrusion Prevention (IPS) Device. To date, it has thwarted tens of thousands of robotic cyber attacks and counting. Success breeds success and our users wanted more.
When our savvy customers realized the power, speed, and low price point of our underlying layer 7 engine, we started getting requests seeking additional features such as: “Can you also block Peer To Peer and other protocols that cannot be stopped by our standard Web Filters and Firewalls?” It was natural that we extended our IPS device to address this space; hence, today we are announcing the next-generation NetGladiator. We now offer a module that will allow you to block and monitor the world’s top 10 p2p protocols (which account for 99 percent of all P2P traffic). We also back our technology with our unique promise to implement a custom protocol blocking rule with the purchase of any system at no extra charge. For example, if you have a specific protocol you need to monitor and just can’t uncover it with your WebSense or Firewall filter, we will custom deliver a NetGladiator system that can track and/or block your unique protocol, in addition to our standard p2p blocking options.
Below is a sample Excel live report integrated with the NetGladiator in monitor mode. On the screen snapshot below, you will notice that we have uncovered a batch of Utorrent and Frost Wire p2p traffic.
Please feel free to call 303-997-1300 or email our NetGladiator sales engineering team with any additional questions at ips@@apconnections.net.
