||Intrusion Detection System Services Module
The Cisco IDSM-2 is part of the Cisco Intrusion Detection System. It works in concert with the other components to efficiently protect your data infrastructure. With the increased complexity of security threats, achieving efficient network intrusion security solutions is critical to maintaining a high level of protection. Vigilant protection ensures business continuity and minimizes the effect of costly intrusions. Cisco integrated network security solutions enable organizations to protect their connected business assets from threats and increase the operating efficiency of intrusion protection. Among these solutions is the second generation of the Cisco Intrusion Detection System (IDS) module, the IDSM-2, for the widely deployed Cisco Catalyst chassis. With an installed base in the hundreds of thousands, the Catalyst chassis is a logical platform for additional services such as firewall, virtual private network (VPN) and intrusion detection system (IDS) services. Recognizing the value of this approach, Cisco introduced this second-generation module that provides unique benefits to customers seeking IDS attack protection.
