Intrusion Protection Updates and ClearSDN

The ClearSDN Intrusion Protection Updates service provides weekly signature updates to improve the effectiveness of the intrusion prevention system. These signatures are compiled from third party organizations as well as internal engineering resources from ClearCenter. With intrusion prevention, it is important to keep false positives to a minimum. We keep tabs on the latest available updates and fine tune the system so you can focus on more important things.
