Intrusion Detection & Prevention System

Botshield is a free-of-charge and quickly applicable
IDS/IPS security solution for Windows servers.



Unfortunatelly, attacks on Internet servers are quite frequent. A constantly rising number of increasingly larger botnets created by professional hackers attempt to gain control over systems without being noticed, spy them out or abuse them for their own purposes.


However, conventional IDS/IPS protection systems are overdimensioned for most server operators and very difficult to handle with all their countless subfunctions.


But now there’s Botshield – a unique novel development geared directly towards current user and security requirements.


A botnet is a group of automated computer programmes, also called "bots". Those "bots" (derived from "robot") operate on internet-connected computers, communicating with each other in an effort to complete repetitive tasks and objectives, often used for spam or DDOS attacks.

Most illegal botnets are beiing installed unnoticed on systems by their operators without the involved users consent.   

There are about 470.000 such bots in Germany, 2000 of them operating on a daily base.* (*statistics: 2010)



An Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is a device or software application that monitors and reports network- or system based activities to detect and prevent potential malicious threats or policy violations.
It complements the functions of a firewall or operates directly on the selected system to raise the security standard within the network.

An easily comprehensible user interface allows even inexperienced administrators to put the protection system into operation within the space of a few minutes.

Afterwards, a resource-saving service application permanently scans the dataflow in the background.


Suspicious IP addresses are logged and blocked fully automatically in critical situations via the firewall.

As a result, attacks and system loads that slow down the performance are effectively prevented!

Blacklists that are updated several times a day and versatile sensors help to protect the system proactively from increasing threats from botnets and hackers.
