VCL-2143, Network MouseTrap™ IP Network Intrusion Detector


Valiant's Network MouseTrapTM is an essential security tool that sits behind the firewall equipment emulating a “decoy server” / a “honeypot” in a secure environment to detect firewall breaches and unauthorized intrusions. Valiant's Network MouseTrapTM forms an essential part of the digital forensics kit that may be installed in secure critical infrastructure such as in Sub-Stations, Smart Grid Distribution Systems, Airport and Railway IT Networks, as well as Financial Infrastructure such as Banks and Payment Processing Gateways to “alert” the network administrator of unauthorized intrusions or a firewall breach.

Data Sheet -104 Protocol Encryptor

Valiant's Network MouseTrapTM finger-prints the complete credentials of the hostile entity (or entities) who have entered the protected network by maintaining a complete log of its (their) credentials such as IP address, Domain and location of the intruder. Each log entry is time-stamped with the exact time and date of each such incident when the unlawful intrusion occurred.

Access to Network MouseTrapTM is password protected with advanced security features that can be customized to meet and exceed the security requirements of even the most demanding network administrator. The Network MouseTrap™ can optionally be managed centrally from a RADIUS Server to provide enhanced levels of access security and centralized password management and control. All Network MouseTrap™ logs are stored in the non-volatile memory of the device that can store up to ten million logs that are over-written on a FIFO basis.
