Miridor

Provides greater insights into network activity (without eating up precious time or budgets)

Miridor (meer·id·or) is an intrusion detection system that gives Cybera’s connected members a simple, but detailed, overview of potential indicators of compromise on their network, to improve their overall security posture.

How does it work?

  • Miridor “mirrors” the network traffic of participating members at Cybera’s core router locations.
  • The mirrored traffic is analyzed for known suspicious or malicious activity.
  • The identified suspicious activity is catalogued in a customized, web-based database that can be reviewed by the member.
  • No configuration or setup is required.

Benefits of Miridor for Cybera members

  • Gain insight into your traffic without needing to deploy extra equipment.
  • Receive an easy-to-consume summary of the malicious activity analysis.
  • Data is freely exportable for further investigations or reporting.

Miridor and the national Cybersecurity Initiatives Program

Miridor was created to serve member organizations that are not eligible for the CANARIE-funded Cybersecurity Initiatives Program (CIP). The CIP, which includes an Intrusion Detection System, is geared towards post-secondary institutions connected to the National Research & Education Network.

Smaller post-secondary institutions (that are eligible for CIP) may still choose to implement both services.

How Miridor compares to the CIP intrusion detection system:

Cybera Miridor CANARIE-funded CIP
