iSensor is Dell SecureWorks' proprietary managed intrusion prevention service. Performing in-line deep packet inspection, iSensor eliminates malicious inbound and outbound traffic in real time. The iSensor service features thousands of unique countermeasures including rules and other proprietary blocking mechanisms. Leveraging Dell SecureWorks' global security visibility, our highly respected security research group continuously updates iSensor's countermeasures, ensuring protection against Zero-Day attacks and other emerging threats.
