UAlbany's IP Blocker: Elevating IDS to IPS

Tuesday, April 21 | 11:45AM–12:45PM | International D (6th floor)
Session Type: Professional Development
Campus networks are constantly barraged by scans and illicit connection attempts targeting legitimate services. How do we keep the bad guys at bay while letting the good guys connect? The University of Albany's IP Blocker effectively leverages existing open-source IDS tools to provide real-time IPS capabilities, at virtually no extra cost.
