Gartner recognises Hillstone Networks for intrusion detection and prevention systems

24 Jul 2019

Enterprise network security and risk management solutions provider Hillstone Networks announced that it has been included as a Representative Vendor in the Gartner Market Guide for Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems for its network intrusion prevention system (NIPS) solution. 

Hillstone believes this inclusion is a testament to its breadth of reach in the market in delivering its vision of security that works.

The Hillstone NIPS appliance operates in-line, and at wire speed, collating all network traffic and performing deep packet inspection of the traffic.

It also applies rules based on several methodologies, including protocol anomaly analysis, signature analysis, cloud-sandbox, and the most advanced techniques in machine learning, such as abnormal behaviour detection (ABD) and advanced threat detection (ATD), to block threats. 

Hillstone NIPS can be deployed in the network to inspect traffic left undetected by perimeter solutions and is an integral part of network security systems for its high-performance, no compromise, best-of-breed protection capability, and broad and flexible deployment scenarios.

"The Hillstone NIPS solution employs behaviour-based detection technology as well as traditional signature-based detection to catch hackers at different stages of the cyber kill chain," says Hillstone Networks CTO and co-founder Timothy Liu.

"We know that with Hillstone's AI-enabled NIPS solution, organisations can better deal with advanced attacks and internal threats, improve their cyber defence posture, and reduce the risks of cyber-attacks and breaches."
