Host Security Service

Host Security Service (HSS) is designed to improve the overall security for hosts. It reduces intrusion risks for hosts with asset management, vulnerability management, intrusion detection, baseline inspection, and web page anti-tampering functions.

Product Advantages
  • Simple Management

    Detection and protection functions are provided on the same page, simplifying the management.

  • Comprehensive Protection

    HSS provides head-to-toe protection for your businesses, including pre-event prevention, during-event defense, and post-event detection.

  • Precise Defense

    Advanced detection technologies and an extensive sample library contribute to the defense precision.

  • Lightweight Agent

    An HSS agent occupies few resources and does not affect your host running.

Application Scenarios
  • Graded Protection

  • Host Security Management

  • Security Risk Assessment

  • Account Security Protection

Graded Protection

Graded Protection

The Cybersecurity Law of China explicitly requires network operators to have intrusion detection capability. With intrusion detection being its major function, HSS helps customers meet regulation requirements.


Protection Against Brute Force Attacks

Detects brute force attacks and blocks attacking IP addresses for 24 hours to ensure host security.

Vulnerability Management

Detects system and software vulnerabilities included in the vulnerability library to help you see hidden security issues.

Malicious Program Detection

Checks running programs to identify malicious programs such as webshells, Trojans, and worms.
