The Q-OSSEC® (Open Source HIDS [Host Intrusion Detection System] SECurity) network appliance is a stand-alone monitor of all ‘Nix system activity, including file system monitoring, log monitoring, rootkit checking, and process monitoring. The Q-OSSEC network appliance also provides comprehensive host-based intrusion detection across Windows, Linux, Solaris, AIX, HP-UX, MAC, and VMWare ESX.
The Q-OSSEC network appliance is intended to complement the other Quantalytics network security appliances to help provide greater in-depth network defense. However, the Q-OSSEC network appliance may be used on a stand-alone basis. It is ideal for PoS (Point of Sale) networks.
