RICHARDSON, Texas, 3 May 2005. Intrusion Inc. announced today it received an order, for $1 million, from the U.S. Army at Fort Hood, Texas for its Common Criteria certified SecureNet Pro Network Intrusion Prevention/Detection system.
This latest purchase will enhance the Army's capability to automatically block network-based intrusions from outside, internet-based attacks as well as internal exploits, often times referred to as back-door or Trojan attacks.
