The Intrusion Prevention app is a plugin to the Intrusion Detection system. The service dynamically creates firewall rules (iptables) to block IP packets if a packet stream matches a known attack signature. Signatures are provided by the intrusion detection app, containing over 1000 known attack vectors. An additional 8,000-10,000 signatures are available (and continually updated) via the IDS update subscription from ClearCenter (app available in the Marketplace).
Documentation for this app can be found here.

The Intrusion Detection app is the cornerstone of security for any size network. The app uses the highly regarded Snort engine to perform real-time traffic analysis and packet logging on Internet Protocol (IP) networks. The app can help identify, log and stop (using the IPS plugin) external attack vectors targeting the network (fingerprinting, buffer overflows, brute force authentication etc.). The app contains over 1000 known attack vector signatures with another 8000+ signatures available (with continuous updates) via the IDS update subscription from ClearCenter (app available in the Marketplace).
Intrusion Protection Updates
Intrusion Protection takes an active role at the edge of your network. It detects attempts to gain access to your system by known exploits and then pro-actively firewalls your server from the perpetrator. Having additional attack vector signatures in additional to continual updates is essential in deploying a security perimeter for your network. The Intrusion Protection Signatures and Updates app provides over 12,000 additional signatures and continual weekly updates.
ClearCenter Remote Security Audit
Remote Security Audit is a service for system administrators to limit the damage potential of corrupted or tampered system files. Reviewed on a regular basis, the audit can quickly notify an admin so damage control measures can be taken in a timely manner. The audit notification (sent from ClearCenter's SDN cloud service) is essentially tamperproof against a malicous attacker covering the intrusion due to the creation of a unique audit hash which is stored in the cloud and compared against on subsequent audits.
Other Apps and Services by Developer
Perform bulk import of users to the system using the Account Import app. Import template supports Comma Separated Values (CVS) that can be created from any spreadsheet application (OpenOffice, Excel etc.)
Account manager plugin for PPTP VPN. This app is required for the master node only in a master/slave environment. The app allows an administrator to define VPN access via the PPTP protocol.
The secure, web-based management framework that provides users with an intuitive user interface to manage and configure apps. Webconfig also provides developers and 3rd-party Integrated Software Vendors (ISV) with an API and web framework to quickly integrate custom applications into ClearOS.
The SMTP Server app uses Postfix (http://www.postfix.org/) in either of two modes - SMTP server or mail gateway. As an SMTP server, it can be used as an on premise mail server, providing email to multiple custom domains. It can be a cost-effective and secure solution to alternative cloud-based mail services like GoogleApps or hosted-MS Exchange. No per-user fees in addition to a number of plug-in app extensions that provide antivirus, antimalware and spam scanning, greylisting, archiving and more. Alternatively, this app can be configured as a pass-through filter, scanning email as it passes through to an existing mail server on your network. The most popular configuration in this mode is to filter mail before passing on to an MS Exchange server - preventing malware via email and spam from ever reaching the the Exchange server and users inboxes.
The DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) app provides automatic IP settings to devices (computers, smartphones, tablets, printers etc.) connecting to your network. If you are using this server to create a new network, replace an existing router or replace a server that currently provides DHCP service to your LAN, installing and configuring this app is recommended.
