IPS (Intrusion Protection Systems)

Intrusion prevention systems (IPS), also known as intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPS), are network security appliances that monitor network and/or system activities for malicious activity. The main functions of intrusion prevention systems are to identify malicious activity, log information about this activity, attempt to block/stop it, and report it.

VPN (Virtual Private Network)

VPN is one solution to establishing long-distance and/or secured network connections. VPNs are normally deployed by businesses or organizations rather than by individuals, but virtual networks can be reached from inside a home network. Compared to other technologies, VPNs offers several advantages, particularly benefits for wireless local area networking.

Benefits of VPN

Cost Savings

Eliminates the need for expensive long-distance leased lines, and reduces long-distance telephone charges. VPN also significantly reduces support costs as the maintenance of the servers is outsourced to third party professionals.


The cost of building a dedicated private network may be reasonable at first, but increases exponentially as the organization grows. Internet based VPNs avoid this scalability problem by simply tapping into the the public lines and network capability readily available. Particularly for remote and international locations, an Internet VPN offers superior reach and quality of service.
