    IT Security Question

    I remember that long ago I was in charge of installing some networks sniffers on a rather large company. The goal of the project was to have all these sniffers log traffic to a central server, where the security guys were going to run some stuff and analyze the data in almost real time.

    The Security Team's goal was to analyze the data and find patterns of possible hacking attempts. They had a few programs to do this and they were going to evaluate these programs, as soon as I was done setting up my sniffers.

    Now... this hacking busting thingamagiingas, they had a name. Just like a "sniffer" is a sniffer and an "antivirus" is an antivirus, the hacker-busting thingies had a term attached to them and I forgot it.

    I would very much like to know what that term is, so I can use it on my own personal conversations and look smart.

    Network security appliance is all I know them as. We have one in our business domain. It is located between the junction where ~ 100 unique I.P. addresses feed into the DSL modem. It monitors network traffic into and out of the modem, tracking network traffic and blocking banned and blacklisted websites.

    The device is similar to:

    I will talk to our IT dept about renaming it to 'hacking busting thingamagiinga' and let you know what they say.

    Could be a few categories...

    intrusion detection system
    intrusion prevention system
    malware prevention system

    There are a few twists and subcategories but those are the most likely.

    There are also collection and alerting systems like a SIM etc too, lots to do with and act upon collected data like that.
