A security firm announced this week it plans to launch a new security system that will not only protect you from hackers but will also go after them.

CAT Inc. says its patented OT-OCN technology-based security system is built to give users, small businesses and enterprises piece of mind when surfing the Web by giving them a system that will stop hackers and attack them too.

The company said its system lets users know whenever a hacker goes after them. It then informs users how a hacker's attempted attack was stopped and where the attack originated from. The security system then goes from being a guard to a hit man and "will proactively and aggressively attack the hacker," the company says in a news release.

"What you find is a unique security system that will protect you not only defensively, but offensively as well," the news release states. "It’s a new approach toward protection against Internet threats."

It's a bold strategy, but CAT says the system is meant to provide Internet users with maximum security. And if a good defense and offense weren't enough, CAT also claims the system substantially increases users' Internet speeds.

"The technology removes delays and 'online traffic congestion,' making it faster and easier for users as they navigate the Internet," the company says.

CAT says the system will launch late this year and be available for purchase online and from computer stores.

There are many different options available for the system in order to meet the needs of many different kinds of users. CAT says the system will cost between $50 and $300, depending on different users' needs.
