anomaly-based monitoring a monitoring technique used by an intrusion detection system that creates a baseline of normal activities and compares actions against the baseline
application-aware firewall a firewall that can identify the applications that send packets through the firewall and then make decisions about the applications
application-aware IDS a specialized intrusion detection system capable of using "contextual knowledge" in real time
application-aware IPS intrusion prevention system that knows info such as the applications running and the underlying OS
application-aware proxy special proxy server that knows the application protocols that it supports
behavior based monitoring a monitoring technique used by an IDS that uses the normal process and actions as the standard and compares actions against it
content inspection searching incoming web content to match keywords
defense in depth defense that uses multiple types of security devices to protect a network
DMZ a separate network that rests outside the secure network perimeter
firewall rules set of individual instructions to control the actions of a firewall
heuristic monitoring monitoring technique used by an intrusion detection system that uses an algorithm to determine if a threat exists
HIDS software-based app that runs on a local host computer that can detect an attack as it occurs
IDS device that detects an attack as it occurs
layered security defense that uses multiple types of security devices to protect a network
load balancer dedicated network device that can direct requests to different servers based on a variety of factors
malware inspection searching for malware in incoming web content
NAC technique that examines the current state of a system or network device before it is allowed to connect to the network
NAT a technique that allows a private ip addresses to be used on the public internet
NIDS tech that watches for attacks on the network and reports back to a central device
NIPS tech that monitors network traffic to immediately react to block a malicious attack
protocol analyzer hardware or software that captures packets to decode and analyze their contents
proxy server a computer or app program that intercepts user requests from the internal secure network and then processes those requests on behalf of the users
remote access any combination of hardware and software that enables remote users to access a local internal network
reverse proxy a computer or an app program that routes incoming requests to the correct server
router device that can forward packets across computer networks
signature-based monitoring monitoring technique used by an intrusion detection system that examins net traffic to look for well-known patterns and compares the activities against a predefined signature
Subnetting technique that uses IP addresses to divide a network into network, subnet, and host
switch dvice that connects network segments and forwards only frames intended for that specific device or frames sent to all devices
UTM network hardware that provides multiple security functions
URL filtering Restricting access to unapproved websites
VLAN tech that allows scattered users to be logically grouped together even though they may be attached to different switches
VPN tech that enables use of an unsecured public network as if it were a secure private nertwork
VPN connector device that aggregates VPN connections
web app firewall a special type of application-aware firewall that looks at the apps using html
web security gateway device that can block malicious content in real time as it appears
