Manufacturer’s Description

The Cisco IDS 4215 sensor is used in the Cisco Intrusion Protection System. This intrusion detection system sensor works in concert with the other components to efficiently protect your data and information infrastructure. With the increased complexity of security threats, achieving efficient network intrusion security solutions is critical to maintaining a high level of protection. Vigilant protection ensures business continuity and minimizes the effect of costly intrusions.Additionally, Cisco's flexible deployment options allow businesses to minimize the total cost of ownership of their IDS deployments by delivering:Unprecedented price/performance ratiosThe ability to simultaneously protect multiple network subnets through the support for multiple sniffing interfaces, thereby delivering up to five sensors in oneA wide array of performance optionsInvestment protection by delivering modular, upgradable componentsSupport for multi-VLAN trafficEmbedded web-based management solutions packaged with the IDS sensors
