May 01, 20061 min

Researchers at the University of Melbourne have developed software that start-up IntelliGuard plans to commercialize via an appliance designed to sniff out trouble and adapt to block bad traffic and hacker attacks, according to this piece in Computerworld. The proprietary technology behind the offering bases its decisions on profiles of IP traffic sources, according to one of the researchers quoted in the story:

“Most existing products use pattern or statistical approaches. Our methods are statistical but very proprietary and will give better reliability.”
