CSA is the first behavior based intrusion prevention solution
and protects both the servers and clients. CSA works off the
understanding of good known behaviors of applications and disallows
all others. This is a proactive approach to the defense in
depth rather than reactionary as the case with traditional
IDS. CSA provides IT staff with the following benefits:
1. Vulnerability mitigation and management.
2. Ease of manageability.
3. Ability to return to scheduled patching (due to behavior
based method, customer remains protected against the unknown).
4. Ability to control what is done with sensitive information
