Armor Intrusion Detection Systems

Monitor and protect your environment 24/7/365

Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) are valuable cybersecurity tools to monitor and protect IT environments from threats—real and potential—that have slipped past traditional firewall solutions, alerting IT and IT Security teams to their presence. But, IDS alerts can be numerous and overwhelming, taxing smaller security teams and compromising the quality of event data analysis and the timeliness of your security team’s response. If you are using a standalone IDS, that event data may not be integrated with the rest of your security infrastructure, preventing you from correlating it with other events on your network—potentially causing you to miss patterns that point to potential threats.

The Armor IDS service, powered by the Spartan threat prevention and response platform, monitors your environment, and alerts you and our elite Armor Security Operations Center (SOC) experts to potential threats, allowing for a quick and accurate response. All event data collected by the Armor IDS is integrated with data collected by other security appliances under monitoring by Armor, and correlated to identify suspicious patterns and behavior. Unlike traditional service providers, our security experts in the SOC go beyond alerting to help your security team quickly respond to the threat and minimize risk it may pose.

Data Sheets

Armor Intrusion Detection System (IDS)

Armor Intrusion Detection services inspect traffic across your network (network-based), and to and from your hosts (host-based) while validating that activities taking place on your hosts are within acceptable norms. All security events are analyzed and correlated through Spartan, and alerts further investigated by our Security Operations Center.

Network-based and Host-based Intrusion Detection Systems

Network-Based Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS)

Available on Armor’s secure hosting solution, Armor Complete, our NIDS provides 24/7/365 management and monitoring of traffic coming to and from your network.

Host-Based Intrusion Detection Systems (HIDS)

Available for on-premise and cloud environments, Armor’s HIDS is managed and monitored 24/7/365 to provide security protections where they are needed most—on your servers and instances.

Delivering Security and Compliance Outcomes

Continuous and Audit-Ready Compliance

Maintain compliance with PCI DSS, HIPAA, and HITRUST through NIDS and HIDS capabilities that help you meet requirements for key control.

Powerful Advanced Analytics and Correlation

Enhance the detection of potential threats across your cloud, on-premise, hybrid and hosted environments by correlating IDS event data with other appliances under monitoring by Armor.

Advanced Threat Detection

Analyze traffic across your network and hosts, monitor resident applications for unusual activity, identify installations of unwanted applications, and look for rogue processes that indicate the presence of a threat.

Response that Goes Beyond Alerting

Identify when a single intrusion event could be part of a broader security incident, and work closely with our SOC analysts to investigate and respond to potential incidents.

How Our Intrusion Detection Systems Work

Catch threats targeting your systems through signature-based threat detection. Armor NIDS provides real-time inspection of HTTP (port 80) network traffic for malicious and anomalous behavior.

Armor inspects anomalous inbound and outbound traffic at the host against policies defined by Armor. Armor HIDS provides an agent-based IDS on the installed host for network traffic analysis and reporting on host activities.

Powered by Spartan

Armor IDS services are powered by Spartan, the industry’s leading threat prevention and response platform. Spartan integrates advanced analytics, global threat intelligence, and continuous response capabilities into a single solution that bolsters your defenses, uncovers hidden threats, and prevents security breaches. Customers can tap into the power and value of Spartan through the Armor Management Portal.
