DataReturn Introduces New Security Suite

DataReturn Corp. announced the introduction of several new security products developed to secure client applications and ensure faster incident response times. The new suite features Reactive Intrusion Detection Services (RIDS) and Vulnerability Assessment Services (VAS).
RIDS combines intrusion detection with packet blocking technologies to deliver unique protection against attacks. RIDS works in real time to detect, identify, and block intruders before the system can be compromised. RIDS can decode and detect attacks commonly missed, such as fragmented attacks, NMAP scans, and many other malicious attacks, without affecting CPU utilization or system throughput. Most common denial of service (DoS) attacks are also prevented using RIDS.
The VAS is a pre-packaged, all-inclusive offering that addresses the increased customer need for enterprise-level security in an outsourced managed hosting model. The monthly VAS package includes vulnerability scans, an annual penetration test, ongoing remediation, and operating system hardening. Data Return’s Information Security Team uses customized system diagnostic tools to perform scans, search for system weaknesses and exploits, and ensure the overall health of the system through regular remediation services. Data Return also provides value-added services for event-based and point-in-time security.
