Symbient™ IDS - Intrusion Detection System and Log File Watcher


Every day, companies (and individuals) around the world become victims of cyber attacks. The majority of attacks that take place are completely automated. Hackers find and share exploits that can be sought out by bots that scour the Internet looking for unpatched and vulnerable systems.

This attack can be easily mitigated by using strong passwords. Other attacks can be prevented by keeping your systems up to date.

So, make sure you apply all security patches as soon as they become available.
