Network Monitoring & Protection

The capability of devices to be mobile allows users the ability to utilize their systems in just about any computing environment available. A diverse and expansive computing landscape brings with it unique security challenges that may not always be apparent in a timely manner. The University of Michigan has in place an Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) to provide another layer of network security. This layer allows ITS to detect and prevent many types of malicious network traffic coming from outside the university before they reach our devices.
