StillSecure has announced the introduction of Strata Guard Free, the latest addition to the suite of intrusion detection products. Strata Guard Free is a full-featured, easy-to-install and use IDS/IPS offered free of charge. It monitors network traffic streams of up to 5 Mbps and is ideally suited to small businesses, remote office connections, and home users.
Strata Guard Free features an easy-to-use interface for quick installation, configuration, and management. Users can become well versed in IDS/IPS best practices by fine tuning Strata Guard Free on-the-fly.
Specific features include a Web-based management console that provides clear, concise data on detected attacks, a variety of response options including the ability to drop the offending traffic, and deep reporting capabilities. Strata Guard Free is offered as a software appliance and can be utilized in either in-line or out-of-band mode.
Users update Strata Guard Free with the latest attack rules, which are offered at no delay, from within the product configuration screens. All rules incorporated into Strata Guard Free are managed by StillSecure’s Security Alert Team (SAT).
“StillSecure’s goal is to offer a full-featured IDS/IPS to anyone who would like to use it, and we’re thrilled to give back to the community with Strata Guard Free,” said Mitchell Ashley, CTO and VP of Customer Experience at StillSecure.
