Security Guardian

Gain real-time, network-based malware detection capabilities, plus a security analytics solution

Nokia Security Guardian provides both a network-based infection detection platform and a security analytics solution. It lets you pinpoint and analyze infections in your customers’ home networks and mobile devices — then take action to protect both the network and subscribers.

The Network-Based Intrusion Detection System (NIDS) detects malicious traffic originating from the subscriber home network or device using specialized traffic-sensing and intrusion-detection software. The Alert Reporting Cluster (ARC) is typically deployed in the service provider’s data center. It is responsible for processing and storing events from the sensors, notifying subscribers about security alerts, and assisting subscribers in removing the threats from their computers. It also hosts the Analytics Portal.

You can deploy Nokia Security Guardian on standard, off-the-shelf hardware in a virtual environment such as CloudStack. This approach minimizes CAPEX and enables cost-effective deployment. It also reduces OPEX by simplifying management and deployment. A virtualized deployment can support elastic scaling when it's needed.
