TippingPoint’s system will protect all servers at Canadian Web Hosting.

TippingPoint inspects every packet to determine if they are legitimate or malicious. This instantaneous form of protection is the most effective process of preventing attacks from reaching its targets.

TippingPoint IPS provides protection for VoIP infrastructure, routers, switches, DNS and other critical infrastructure from targeted attacks and traffic irregularity.

“TippingPoint has enabled us to deliver a better uptime for our customers,” said Alex Zarud senior system administrator. “There was no longer a need to monitor the servers for “exploitable processes” since TippingPoint blocks all these attacks.”

TippingPoint Digital Vaccine Service adds new filters that live to guard against the latest vulnerabilities. Each filter can be thought of as a Virtual Software Patch that is created within the network to protect downstream hosts from attack. TippingPoint detects and blocks any malicious traffic intended to exploit a particular vulnerability.

Some of the attacks blocked by TippingPoint include: Slammer-Sapphire Worm (MS-SQL), PHP Code Injection (HTTP), PHP File Include Vulnerability (HTTP), ASN.1 Bitstring Processing Heap Overflow (HTTP), Nimda Attack (HTTP).
