Perimeter Security

Bond Communications are experts in the provision of cost-effective external perimeter security systems for
detection of intruders outside – before they can do any damage. Our solutions include fence security,
perimeter security and infrared systems. The careful application of external intruder detectors can provide
significant cost savings in terms of manpower, loss recovery and damage limitation, quickly recovering the
initial capital outlay. Perimeter security is a set of physical security and programmatic security policies that
provide levels of protection against remote malicious activity.

Intrusion Prevention Systems
An Intrusion prevention system (IPS) is a network security device that monitors network and/or system
activities for malicious or unwanted behavior and can react, in real-time, to block or prevent those activities.
Network-based IPS, for example, will operate in-line to monitor all network traffic for malicious code or
attacks. When an attack is detected, it can drop the offending packets while still allowing all other traffic to
pass. Intrusion prevention technology is considered by some to be an extension of intrusion detection (IDS)
technology. An IPS is typically designed to operate completely invisibly on a network. IPS products do not
typically claim an IP address on the protected network but may respond directly to any traffic in a variety of
ways. (Common IPS responses include dropping packets, resetting connections, generating alerts, and even
quarantining intruders.) While some IPS products have the ability to implement firewall rules, this is often a
mere convenience and not a core function of the product. Moreover, IPS technology offers deeper insight into
network operations providing information on overly active hosts, bad logons, inappropriate content and many
other network and application layer functions.
