Dragon Network Sensors are IDS and IDS/IPS security appliances that offer market leading deep forensics capabilities, including flexible packet capture and complete session reconstruction. Dragon Network Sensors are centrally managed via the Dragon Enterprise Management Server (EMS). Dragon EMS provides configuration management, status monitoring, live security updates, and a secure encrypted communications channel.
Dragon Network Sensors utilize an adaptive match engine and multithreaded application execution to significantly enhance performance. Sensors support the use of multiple detection algorithms simultaneously, thereby optimizing traffic analysis to match the prevalent traffic type.
Security Administrators have broad flexibility in deploying Dragon Network Sensors. For example, a single sensor may operate as multiple "virtual sensors", each associated with a particular VLAN, Layer 3 network, physical switch port or TCP / UDP level application. Each virtual sensor can be configured with unique policies that define the analysis techniques used and alerts generated.
FE Dragon Network Sensors are IDS appliances for branch office and similar locations. They support 100 Mbps data rates and include 2 onboard ports plus 1 dual-port 10/100/1000 Copper LAN interface.
