About the NetGladiator

NetGladiator IPS appliances both detect and prevent network intrusions. NetGladiator IPS is a simple, elegant, turn-key appliance, utilizing our proprietary "gladiator" technology to keep your network secure from hackers and ensuring bandwidth availability for your legitimate network users.

Read How We Created NetGladiator

We defend your network.  Our unique, heuristics-based IPS system uses deep packet inspection (DPI) technology to monitor incoming requests, looking for abnormalities in the traffic patterns, which represent potential intrusion attempts. We then both block the intrusion and notify your network administrators, who can analyze the attempt further and fix any possible entry breach points in your network without dealing with an attack in progress.

We reduce time spent assessing potential threats.  The NetGladiator automatically blocks hackers without manual intervention, freeing up your network administrators for more value-added tasks.

Our solutions are fast.  We leveraged our expertise in real-time optimization to make sure that we minimize additional latency on your network due to running an IPS solution. The toolset is built upon a parallel processing paradigm, enabling NetGladiator to swiftly detect and thwart potential hackers.

We make it easy on you.  NetGladiator installs in minutes, intelligently blocking hackers without administrators having to manually intervene and police your network. It's possible because of our unique "gladiator" intrusion prevention technology that utilizes heuristic-based algorithms to automatically detect and prevent intrusions. Results are a secure network, with more bandwidth available to your legitimate network users.
