SkyBOOKS uses Protect Point for security intrusion detection management. We use dual Fortigate 60 firewalls for security,
dual (Managed Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (MIDPS) for protection and redundancy.
Our managed firewalls ensure the highest level of security by tracking and controlling the flow of communication passing through
it with the use of “stateful packet inspection”. Including a state-of-the-art firewall, this solution provides strong protection
to minimize vulnerabilities and enforce a company wide security policy.
Managed Intrusion Detection and Prevention System
Managed Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (MIDPS) is integrated into the security appliance and is responsible for detecting
anomalous, inappropriate, or other data that may be considered unauthorized on the SkyBOOKS network. MIDPS enables the Security
Operations Center to capture and inspect all traffic, regardless of whether it’s permitted or not. Based on the content of each
and every packet, it is determined if it is safe. If it is dangerous, an alert is generated. ProtectPoint detects, alerts and
blocks for security threats including buffer overflows, stealth port scans, CGI attacks, SMB probes and NetBIOS queries, NMAP and
other port scanners, backdoors, Trojans and Microsoft operating system and applications vulnerabilities, DdoS clients and many more.
All our data is encrypted using high grade 256-bit SSL Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) technology.
