  2. Fail2ban

  4. Denyhosts

    • FreeOpen Source
    • Linux

    The idea of denying access to SSH servers is nothing new and I was inspired by many other scripts that I discovered. However, none of them did things the way I envisioned them to. Also, they were all shell scripts which do not offer the elegance of Python.

  5. Cyberarms Intrusion Detection and Defense

    • FreeOpen Source
    • Windows

    Out-of-the-box security for Remote Deskop, Exchange, OWA, SharePoint, CRM, generic IIS applications and many other server systems.

    Discontinued

    Software has been set open-source and abandoned by the main developer. Seems a very good detector but fails to successfully stop attacks. When I have it set to block IPs after 5 failed attempts I shouldn't see multiple entries showing 300 attempts by the same IP addresses.

    • FreeOpen Source
    • Windows

    Monitor logs from several sources and execute actions based on some rules. Can be used to protecet against brute-force attacks

  9. Your Microsoft Windows servers are probably under constant attack and you may not even know it! Chances are if your hosting remote desktop, or other services such as Microsoft exchange, FTP, HTTP, HTTP’s or SQL. Your server is likely getting bombarded with failed login attempts.
