How Nova Works

Denies Access:

Nova thwarts attempts by attackers to gain information about a private network by setting a large net of virtual decoys, or honeypots. The search for real machines and valuable data is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

Detects Threats:

Nova identifies the attackers by their inevitable suspicious reconnaissance and efforts to connect through the honeypots.


Administrators are notified by email and data logs about the hostile activity and details regarding the source and behavior.

Nova Software Support and Downloads:

Nova support includes software updates, software licensing information, Nova Appliance User's Manual, software bulletins, and more.
