The article presents information on the Gigabit Intrusion Detection test conducted by the NSS Group for Internet Security System's RealSecure Network Gigabit intrusion detection system (IDS). In the tests, each product was evaluated on attack detection, performance, attack evasion and so-called stateful operations. The testing found that the Gigabit IDS delivered 100 percent attack detection, performance and attack evasion. Apparently it was the only product to do so. The NSS report also stresses RealSecure's ease of management, product installation, policy management, reporting, analysis and alert handling.
